Set on the westernmost tip of Sicily, among fishing towns and breath-taking seascapes, Trapani is the Italian city closest to Africa.

During Pre-history, Trapani was but a cluster of small islands and rocks that in time have been made into one strip of land, until they formed the sickle-shaped peninsula we know today.

Apart from its shape, Trapani will surprise you because of its position, between sea and mountain, that is between Mount Erice and the waters where the Egadi islands rise--Favignana, Levanzo et Marettimo.

Just outside the city you will find the Saline's reserve where shallow saltpans mirror the sky's colour, from blue to pink, and still yield table salt according to age-old methods.

In front of Trapani rise the Egadi islands, the largest sea reserve in Europe, with their clear waters and typical fishing towns.

Halfway between Trapani and Marsala, in the Stagnone Lagoon, archaeology and watersports live together.

West of Trapani, massive pyramid-like Mount Cofano, surrounded by the sea on three sides, is also an environmental reserve with two main footpaths.  

Last but not least, next to San Vito lo Capo lies the Zingaro reserve: a six-kilometre stretch of untamed coast with the nicest beaches in Sicily!


Scuola di lingua italiana Virgilio


Scuola Virgilio is an Italian language school proposing intensive Italian language classes in Italy. Our Italian language courses in Sicily can offer you a study abroad program with the right balance between Italian language study, Italian culture courses (Italian cinema, cooking, history of Italy...), outdoor activities and pure fun.

Italian and sicilian cookery courses

What we propose to you is not just to taste but also to learn to prepare yourselves the best Italian specialities especially from the Sicilian tradition!

Upon request, we organise Italian and Sicilian cooking classes with professional chefs. In each cookery class you will participate in the preparation of a full dinner, from antipasti (starters) to dolci (desserts), with a detailed explanation of every recipe. Each cooking lesson takes a whole afternoon and it ends with a full dinner (wine-tasting included) that participants will share around the table with the chef.

Here are a few Italian and Sicilian recipes, very simple and tasty: to begin with, a sweet-and-sour caponata salad with aubergines and olives; then, pasta with pesto sauce, either the classic Genoa pesto or the stronger Trapani pesto;  followed by Palermo style herrings rolled with pine nuts, raisins and bay leaves; and finally a juicy and refreshing lemon or almond granita.
