Favignana Guide

The Italian island of Favignana is the largest of the three main Egadi islands in southern Italy. The island is located around 7 km to the west off the coast of Sicily, between Trapani and Marsala. The island is often described as having a 'butterfly' shape. Located on a narrow strip of land that connects the two 'wings' of the island stands Favignana town. The two wings of the island have very different characteristics. The eastern part of the island is mainly flat while the western part of the island has a chain of hills of which Monte Santa Caterina is the tallest at 314 m above sea level. Sitting on top of Monte Santa Caterina is a fort which was originally established by the Saracens and is still in use by the Italian army. Visitors should note that the fort is not open to the public. Although there are tourist amenities, the island's character seems little-altered, and travellers who come here are happy to fit in with the leisurely island way of life. Located off the south coast of Favignana are a number of small islands.

Favignana has good, frequent ferry connections with the other islands and with Trapani and Marsala. By hydrofoil Favignana is around thirty minutes journey time from Trapani.


Marettimo Guide

The Italian island of Marettimo is the most remote of the three Egadi Islands which lie off Sicily's west coast. The island, which is simply a rocky ridge that protrudes out of the Mediterranean, lies within a marine nature reserve and is a popular destination for scuba divers, walkers and simply for those seeking a tranquil break. The island only has one town, also called Marettimo, and is a fishing town that has a number of quite humble pale coloured square houses.

The ferries using the island's pretty harbour moor up alongside fishing vessels and diving school boats and is a short distance from another small harbour that is mainly used only by fishermen. Passengers disembarking rom a ferry do so right into the narrow streets of Marettimo where they are greeted by a lovely cosmopolitan atmosphere. At first the island may seem similar to other Mediterranean islands but upon closer inspection, and after a bit of exploring, the island's Italian charm shines through as smart stairways and little catholic shrines are uncovered. Marettimo is around 40 minutes by hydrofoil from Favignana, and an hour from Trapani.
