Western Sicily Holidays

Home to the island's capital, Palermo as well as historic sites

To see more of this fascinating island, take a drive towards the west and back in time to ancient Greece, with a visit to the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento and the Temple at Segesta, standing majestically on a ridge overlooking the sea. Discover the far west where the little town of Mazara del Vallo is a good base to visit the Marsala district, famous for the fortified wine discovered by the British and exported far and wide. From Trapani, where the salt flats and windmills are some of the oldest in Europe, you can take ferries to the beautiful Egadi Islands.
