Ladies Trip to Trapani, Sicily with Blog by Grazielle

Just two weeks ago, I was enjoying the last few hours of a fantastic weekend break in Sicily organized by Blog by Grazielle together with Marija
, Kirsten and guest photographer Ron Kerr.

Our adventure started on Friday afternoon when we met at Malta International Airport, all in beaming smiles ready to see what the weekend and Trapani had in store for us! I have only visited Sicily once before and I fell in love with the island so much that I couldn't say no to this girls only trip. 

Trapani is a province on the west coast of Sicily, bordered by the Thyrrenian Sea on the north and the Mediterranean Sea on the south with the city of Trapani being it's capital. Being surrounded by the sea, it is very evident that Trapani's main source of income is tuna fishing with trawlers scattered all around the port and the fishermen selling their fresh catches during the Sunday market. Other economic activities Trapani is known for, are coral fishing salt and wine production and artisanal, hand painted ceramics.

We stayed at the B&B Belveliero Trapani which is a small, family run bed and breakfast located on via San Cristoforo right off the promenade and a 5 minute walk from Trapani Old Town. Giovanni, our host, made sure all our needs were seen to whether it was a taxi service, restaurant and shopping recommendations and just generally feeling at home.

Me and Marija had the smallest room from the three prepared for us but it had everything we needed - clean and comfortable beds, a nice, spacious en-suite bathroom with hot water, and free Wi-Fi with optimum signal strength. The decor is typical Sicilian with an ornate headboard on our beds and pretty floor tiling. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and it was all I needed to refresh my brain. Breakfast was delicious every single morning especially the strawberries and Sicilian croissants. A small selection of cakes, olives, cheese, ham, bread and cereal as well as different flavoured yoghurts completed the food repertoire. As for drinks, there was quite the choice - coffees, teas and juices, just take your pick! At €33 per person per night, I think the B&B Belveliero Trapani is excellent, if anything for the comfy beds, views and it's prime location.

Us ladies got to see quite a good number of attractions Trapani is known for, mainly the ancient ruins of Segesta, the Medieval hill-top town of Erice, the salt pans at Paceco and of course, Trapani Old Town where we found our favourite restaurant, Osteria I Vitelloni which has served us all impeccably presented and equally decadent dishes on the two occasions that we dined there. My personal favourite is the Tuna Tagliata with a pistacchio crust. The Lindt Gelateria is also a must visit for anyone with a sweet-tooth - any Lindt chocolate flavour you can imagine, is transformed into a delicious ice-cream! Sicilian cannoli are not be missed and the best we've had are the ones from Eurobar di Dattilo at Paceco.

This is a general idea of what we were up to during our short break :) Stay tuned for more fun posts in the coming days!
