Travel Log: Trapani, Italy

IMG_4343_matteresized

I am finally sharing some of my favorite photographs taken in Trapani, Italy. Trapani is located in Western Sicily and is absolutely gorgeous. I visited with a group of ladies who all gathered to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday. We spent about 4 days in Trapani and really just enjoyed the city and local area, trying out some of the local specialities, wandering through the cobblestone streets, and enjoying “la dolce vita.”

We enjoyed arancini, lots of cappuccini, cannoli, ate dessert for breakfast (always my favorite), and drank the local bar out of amaretto (true story). Several of us got lost on the way to check out some Greek ruins in Segesta; we made it eventually and had some wonderful accidental adventures in the process. We took a ferry over to Favignana and some of us toured the island via scooter (which I blogged about here). It was such a wonderful few days, filled with food, fun, and friends – and such unforgettable memories. I am so glad I brought my camera along to have photographs to remember our time by.
