Among the services offered it is possible to have: reception, security control, information points, bus park area, self service, newspapers, internet point, toilets.

Trapani can be considered an alternative port call to many other Sicilian ports(Palermo, Catania, and Messina). Its characteristics are: Unique and New, Organization, Difference.

  • Unique and New: Trapani port, is the natural gateway to charming tourist destination,  new and unique, like: Erice Segesta, Selinunte, Marsala with its food and wine tours, Mozia, Mazara del Vallo, Agrigento and the Valley of Temples and the Natural Reserve of the Zingaro (Scopello).
  • Organization: Trapani port guarantees an easy access directly to the town and to the territory. For this characteristic, Trapani has been appreciated in the whole world during the Louis Vuitton Cup act 8 & 9 in 2005.
  • Difference: Even if Trapani represents the Sicilian history totally, the territory is also different from the remaining part of Sicily. Trapani has been influenced by many cultures and it is possible to find them all in this territory: museums, roman sites, Greek and Phoenician remains, Normans and medieval influences, the Arab culture, the sea, the mountains, nature and reserves the salt pans and the Egadi Islands, the excellent fish, the food , the extra virgin olive oil, the wine and the coral.
  • Trapani can be considered a port in the city center. Thanks to the typical sickle shape of the city, placed between two seas, make the sea touch all the borders of the ancient center of the city.

The new and interesting idea of tourism is to consider the city as a park or village where people can go walking through beautiful ancient streets and discover important churches, coloured domes, baroque palaces. Along this walk it is possible to find the best shops, restaurants, wine shops and all kind of useful services (banks, post offices, information points).
