sicily in sep

travelling to sicily for 7 nights in sep. flying into trapani. looking for ideas on what to do/where to go etc. thinking of going out to egadi islands (maybe favignana) for last couple of days. If anyone knows any good hotels etc there or in trapani/ surroundings please let me know. bit apprehensive about car hire (no sense of direction), any comments from people who've hired cars there much appreciated.

Thanks

Northwestern Sicily is easy to drive. It's not at all congested, and the roads are good.

Trapani is an old port town, but the surrounding area is beautiful. A trip to the Egadi Islands, especially Favignana, would be worthwhile.

Here's an excellent site for Favignana. Everything you will need to know is posted here!

www.trapani-sicilia.it/english/favignana.htm

Some of the sights to see include the beautiful and historic hill town of Erice, and the fantastic ruins at Segesta. Also venture up to San Vito Lo Capo, and Scopello, the gateway to the Zingaro Reserve. Palermo and the duomo at Monreale are also possibilities. The area is also known for its vineyards, and wine production, especially around Alcamo, and Regaleali, near the tiny village of Vallelunga, and of course, Marsala.
