Spring is the most suitable time to enjoy outdoor experiences. San Vito Lo Capo and western Sicily truly offer many opportunities to indulge in outdoor activities in natural settings of extraordinary beauty: walking, mountain biking, sport climbing, but also kitesurfing and paragliding.

For trekking lovers, at the top of the list we find the paths of the Zingaro and Monte Cofano nature reserves, excellent for everyone, with their different levels of difficulty and spectacular for their scenic value.

An unusual natural environment, but particularly interesting to visit, is that of the salt pans.

On the extreme coast of western Sicily, opposite the archipelago of the Egadi islands, there are: the Saline di Trapani nature reserve, a WWF Oasis and the Stagnone di Marsala nature reserve, known for its romantic sunsets.

If you love immersing yourself in the traditions of a place you should not miss the Feast of San Giuseppe in Salemi, 19 March 2024. The event has been repeated for several years and brings with it the feeling of religious tradition, but also the simple flavors of rural tradition. Worth visiting are the altars of Saint Joseph adorned with the classic breads made by the expert hands of the women of the town.

If you want to experience one of the most intense religious moments of popular participation you must not miss the Mysteries. They are two religious processions that revive the Passion of Christ, one takes place in the historic center of Trapani and one in the heart of the village of Erice.

If you are attracted by contemporary art, Gibellina is the ideal destination for your trip. City-Museum in the open air, Gibellina was reborn after the sad event of the 1969 earthquake and experienced a new international dimension thanks to the works donated over the years by great world-famous artists.

Jutting out into the sea, Trapani with its elegant historic center ideally divides the Mediterranean in two. The sea and its long city beaches are decidedly attractive, especially in the warm months.

Among the archaeological sites that can be visited in western Sicily we highlight Mozia in the center of the Stagnone di Marsala.

It is impossible not to be fascinated by this magical island where in the 8th century BC the Phoenicians founded one of the most flourishing cities in the Mediterranean.
