About Trapani

Trapani Ferry Port lies on the west coast of Sicily and is a major fishing and ferry port. Even today, the main source of income for the local residents is still fishing and canning (especially Tuna) along with coral, salt, marble and marsala wine. Miles and miles of beaches make Trapani the perfect city for sun seekers, and the shallow waters offer a great place to swim for young children. The beautiful watch towers and windmills make up the skyline and that is just a small part of what Trapani is all about.

An ancient yet modern city, Trapani is home to the Romanesque and Renaissance buildings, as well as numerous churches. In amongst this rich history you will find modern shops and amenities, including an abundance of beachside restaurants.

Much of Trapani has Baroque style buildings all over, some of the notable ones are Church of Saint Agostino, Church of Santa Maria di Gesu, Triton's fountain and Palazzo della Giudecca. Trapani is also well known for seafood delicacies and other Sicilian cuisine.

    Enjoyable way to travel
    • Enjoyable journey that is much more fun than flying. The staff onboard were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money considering the yourney includes a nights accommodation. Good canteen and bar but a bit expensive, take drinking water with you before you board. The port in Trapani for the return journey had absolutely no facilities so be prepared especially as a foot passenger. Watching the sunset and sunrise from a ship on the Mediterranean sea is fabulous.

    Best route to Sicily!
    • A very smooth and quick crossing. Loading and unloading was extremely efficient, and we departed and arrived on time. The ship was spacious and comfortable, and the cabin fine for one night. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The only disappointment was the organisation in the Yellow's happy self restaurant, which is too small to efficiently serve a large number of passengers. The food was ok, but cold by the time we eventually paid at the only till and sat down. It will definitely be the Dolce Vita restaurant next time! But overall a good experience, and one we look forward to repeating.

    Pretty good!
    • Overall a pleasant experience. We have a 6M motorhomes, and the check-in, loading and unloading were faultless. Food was varied and reasonably well-cooked. I am gluten intolerant and there were two or three main course options to choose from - a plus! We had a bunk cabin - which was fine except for the mattress, which was hard - and the heating controls did not work. The shower etc were excellent. The ship was clean and the crew were friendly - and everything happened on time. Pretty good!

    Good but can improve
    • The staff on board explained that the Cagliari-Trapani route is meant for working travelers and not for holiday purposes. However, observing the passengers, I am of the opinion that they were mostly families on holiday. The boat offered little comfort and entertainment facilities. Il personale di bordo ha spiegato che la rotta Cagliari-Trapani è pensato per i viaggiatori di lavoro e non per scopo vacanza. Tuttavia, osservando i passeggeri, io sono del parere che essi erano per lo più le famiglie in vacanza. La barca ha offerto poco di conforto e di svago.

    It would've been fine had it been on time.
    • Apparently the ferry had been rescheduled for 3 hours later, which I did not receive a notice of, but I suppose I could've checked, so I don't blame this on Grimaldi. In the end, however, the ship left only at about 8-9pm, which is quite a delay and moved the arrival to the unholy time of 4am. While this was an annoying nuisance, the rest of the stay was fine. Friendly staff and a lot of room (mind you, off season plus currently tourist-deprived Tunis), so I would suggest that company but would hope for the delay to be less grave and for reschedules to be announced to the passangers ahead of time.
