A lively city

In Trapani, a location you can visit easily during your MSC Mediterranean cruise, almost everything of interest is found in the old town, west of the Villa Margherita gardens.

Churches and palaces have been renovated in recent years, and a plethora of bars and restaurants have opened along stylish pedestrianized streets – notably Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Via Torrearsa and Via Garibaldi. What is more, as you’ll be able to discover on a cruise excursion, the northern seafront, above the long beach, has also been considerably smartened up. 

The nearest and most exhilarating ride from Trapani is to Erice, fifteen minutes away by cable car (funivia). It’s a mountain town with creeping hillside alleys, stone buildings, silent charm and powerful associations. The original city was known to the ancient world as Eryx, and a magnificent temple, dedicated to Venus Erycina, Mediterranean goddess of fertility, once topped the mountain. Though the city was considered impregnable, Carthaginian, Roman, Arab and Norman invaders all forced entry over the centuries. But all respected the sanctity of Erice: the Romans rebuilt the temple and set two hundred soldiers to serve as guardians of the shrine, while the Arabs renamed the town Gebel-Hamed, or “Mohammed’s mountain”. 

A shore excursion to the bleak lava wilderness around the summit of Etna will instead greet you with the most memorable landscapes Italy has to offer. The volcano’s height is constantly shifting, depending on whether eruptions are constructive or destructive, and over the last century it has ranged from 3263m to the present estimate of 3340m. Whatever its exact height, Etna is a substantial mountain, one of the world’s biggest active volcanoes, and on a clear day it can be seen from well over half of Sicily.

    意大利航行将会是一次丰富的情感之旅。 罗马(Rome)是一个巨大的都市,完全不同于任何其他城市,而在历史景点方面,罗马更是大大超越了意大利的所有其他地区。
    威尼托(Veneto)大区的主要焦点当然是威尼斯(Venice):它独一无二,是名副其实的水上美城。 托斯卡纳(Tuscany)大区位于意大利中部,它或许具有人们眼中最经典的意大利美景,不仅有连绵起伏的乡村,还有佛罗伦萨(Florence)比萨(Pisa)这两座闻名于世的艺术重镇。

    南部名城当从坎帕尼亚(Campania)大区开始算起。 它的首府那不勒斯(Naples)是一个独特而又令人难忘的城市,它是意大利南部的精魂所在。 普利亚(Puglia)大区位于意大利版图的“足跟部”,也不乏鲜为人知的魅力,尤其是加尔加诺(Gargano)半岛的风景和其首府巴里(Bari)露天集市般的热闹气氛。
