The House of Argo is a B&B personally run by the proprietor and located in the sea town of Trapani, very close to the Tower of Ligny and the local fish market. The building dates back to early 1900 and it is a fisherman’s typical house. Every morning fishing boats return to the harbour followed by seagulls flying behind. When the wind blows you can smell the sea while sitting in the terrace, where a delicious breakfast is ready for you. Take your swimming gear and have relaxing swims under the Tower of Ligny. From there you can enjoy one of the most impressive sunsets of Sicily. The place has an emphasis on peace and quiet. Walk in the pedestrian precinct of Trapani Baroque town centre and enjoy a romantic evening along the city walls of Tramontana overlooking the sea. On the following day a trip to the Egadi islands is a must. At five minutes’ walk from the B&B there is the port of Trapani, where you can take a hydrofoil to Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo. Moreover, a ten minutes’drive will take you to one of the most fantastic sights nearby: the Saline, salt-pans with windmills standing behind against the skyline, a stunning view in the moonlight; there you can also see flamingos in the water if you go for a ride early in the morning. It will take you thirty minutes’drive to reach the isle of Mothia with its interesting museum, rich of Phoenician remains. You should also visit Marsala, a town famous for its excellent wines and wine cellars, where visitors can try some of the best ones; also the museum deserves a visit and you can admire a Punic ship there. The House of Argo is conveniently situated for public transportation. A few minutes’walk takes you to a bus stop where you can catch a free bus to piazza Vittorio, and from there you can take bus 23 to the cable car station to Erice, a charming medieval village on the hill. Near piazza Vittorio there are the central Railway station and Coach station. The Segesta coach company runs buses to Palermo almost every hour. The airport of Birgi can be reached in twenty minutes by car and a bus service is available from and to Trapani. Argo, my dog, is waiting for you!
