It's only the beginning
A holiday must first of all be an experience and the territory of the province of Trapani is the ideal place, with its continuous succession of enchanting views, uncontaminated natural paths, lush coastlines and crystal clear waters.
The Hotel San Michele was born precisely because it wants to be your starting point to explore this multi-faceted territory.
A province where nature has created lush plants, such as the vineyards that produce wines that know of Sicily or local treasures like the Red Garlic of Nubia, the Olive of Belice or the ancient Grain of Tumminia. A land surrounded by the sea and dotted with beaches and coves that will allow you to experience all the magic of the Trapani coast. Trapani is home to important nature reserves such as the famous Zingaro Reserve at San Vito Lo Capo, or the Saline Reserve of Trapani and Paceco, the Stagnone lagoon of Marsala, the wetlands of the Gorghi Tondi. Without forgetting the Egadi Marine Reserve, the largest "blue" reserve in Europe.
News & Events from Hotel San Michele
A story that has not left only words and stones: it is found every day even in the Mediterranean flavors that make the Trapani food and wine a point of excellence.
Let's start with what is closest to us. The historical center of Trapani is the plastic transposition of the stratification of the cultures that have influenced the territory. An uninterrupted sequence of small foreshortenings, noble palaces, houses and stones, but also looks, smells and tastes that make up the story of a city.
Too much to talk at once. The photographer Anatole Klapouch tried to do it with some success, creating a video in Hyperlapse that tells, in 90 seconds, the most fascinating corners of the historic center of Trapani.
And then there is the history, from the rock inscriptions of Levanzo to the remains of the Battle of the Egadi, passing through Mothia, Segesta and Selinunte. The path of Trapani in history has left evident traces. The Arabs have left us a unique urban architecture, from Normans and Spaniards we have inherited ramparts and castles and the recent centuries have left enchanting noble palaces that come up to a particular interpretation of Art Nouveau. But there are also the places of the Renaissance epic, from Salemi, the first capital of Italy, to Marsala, hub of the Garibaldi saga of the Thousand.
Remaining a few steps from our hotel, there is another unique glimpse: the salt pans of Trapani and Paceco. A nature reserve that represents the perfect synthesis between human work and nature. The ancient tanks are the theater of a daily work that leads to the extraction of one of the most famous sea salts in the world. A work that has remained almost unchanged over the centuries. And the respect of an environment that returns this attention by giving us unique shows and offering shelter to dozens of bird species, including the fascinating pink flamingo, which use the protected area of the salt marshes as a stop on their migratory routes.
Nature has been generous, with the sea of Trapani.
