You can’t get better than a scenic coastal drive filled with dramatic backdrops and gorgeous coastal towns and hamlets for exploring. The dramatic coastline is a real draw and the refreshing sea breeze is the perfect way to cool off in the hot summer sun. Although beautiful at any time of year, the best time to tackle the Amalfi Coast is at the beginning and end of tourist season (May and September to October) when the roads are quieter.
One of our favourites, this short but intriguing drive gives you a different view of Sicily, complete with brightly coloured windmills, salt marshes and impressive views over the Egadi Islands. In Trapani, visit the 14th century Church of Sant'Agostino with its beautiful rose window, the magnificent Basilica-Sanctuary of Maria Santissima Annunziata and the Baroque Palazzo della Giudecca.
Then, to start your scenic drive, leave Trapani heading south towards Marsala to enjoy a picturesque stretch of road. Marvel at the impressive working windmills that frequently dot the landscape, pumping seawater into storage basins ready to grind the salt after harvest. Visit the salt museum at Contrada Nubia in Paceco to learn all about the salt trade and ancient harvesting methods. Continue on to Marsala, enjoying some of the region’s most ancient salt marshes as a backdrop.
When you reach Marsala, take a pleasant drive through the town, taking in its array of statues and coastal views.Take the time to stop and view the three islands: Favignana is the largest of the three, Maritimo the most ancient and furthest away and Levanzo is the smallest. Schedule a visit to the islands via a 20-minute hydrofoil trip. The islands are packed with beautiful bays and coves and ancient caves containing Neolithic wall paintings.
For something a bit more adventurous, why not try this short volcanic drive? Zafferana Etnea and Nicolosi are gateway towns to Mount Etna and Rifugio Sapienza and offer a signposted driving loop atop the volcano which takes you from one to the other via Rifugio – home of the Etna funivia.
The roads are good and the scenery is splendid, different to any other drive you will experience on Sicily. The perfect contrast to the popular scenic coastal routes, this also provides you with excellent hiking trails around the volcano. Rifugio Sapienza is the highest point you can drive on the volcano, offering plenty of excitement as well as great views. Zafferana Etna is 19 km from Rifugio Sapienza and takes approximately half an hour to drive. Nicolosi is an additional 19 km from Rifugio, making the journey an hour in total.
