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.

    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.

    Horrible!
    • This trip made me never want to travel by ferry again. We boarded 3 hours late and sat motionless for another 2 hours before finally leaving. Dinner was the only good thing as the food was very enjoyable (but a bit pricey). When departing the ferry I stood for almost 2 hours in a crowd of people to go through customs (aboard the ship) even though they had called for people to come almost an hour before THAT. (Why ask people to come with their passports if they need to wait 3 more hours?) Bathrooms were a place I tried to avoid due- although the women's was much better than the men's. Because of the major delay, we arrived (actually GOT OFF the boat) at around 2 am and I was unable to check in to my previously booked B&B and had to spend the night in a 24 hour cafe until the next morning. I know several people who missed flights and other travel connections because of the delay as well. My advise-- FLY. (The one star ratings were entered because it wouldn't allow me to submit with no stars chosen.)

    Sardinia to Sicily by cargo boat
    • We were surprised the ship left late and took an extra hour across too than advertised. We arrived in the dark instead of the light - a nuisance. The standard of the ship was poor compared to all our other crossings (to France, to Sardinia, & back to England). Poor catering, poor seating and facilities, but it did a job and we were grateful for that. We think it was basically a truckers' ship, so aimed at the lorry-driving community, and was different to the one whose schedule was advertised. Other ships in the line are likely to be a lot smarter (and faster).
