The small Italian island of Levanzo is one of the Aegadian group of islands in the Mediterranean Sea, to the west of the island of Sicily. Of the three islands that make up the Aegadian islands Levanzo is the smallest (Favigana is the largest), measuring just under 6 sq. km with around 450 inhabitants, many of which live around the island's port. The pretty little port on the island has a cluster of pale square buildings huddled around the little harbour. The island doesn't have a road network but there are a couple of dirt tracks that only four wheel drive cars and donkeys are able to use. The main, and perhaps only, tourist sight on the island is the Grotto del Genovese which is a cave that contains prehistoric art. There is very little else to do in the island other than relax, swim and sunbathe, and of course enjoy the island's atmosphere.
The island is only about twenty minutes by hydrofoil from Trapani. There are several hydrofoil and slower ferry connections a day both with the Sicilian city and also with the larger island of Favignana.
The Italian island of Favigana is one of the Egadi Islands and lies off the west coast of Sicily. Favigana is connected to the other Egadi islands and also with Trapani which makes the island very accessible because of the proximity of Trapani Airport to the island. The island is popular with tourists but has managed to retain much of its leisurely way of life and island charm. This is perhaps because it has never been an island that has been popular with the rich and hasn't succumbed to building out of character attractions or facilities to cater for tourists.
Favigana Town is a lovely place to visit with a friendly atmosphere. The town's centre is pedestrianised for the evening passeggiata and its squares, Piazza Madrice and Piazza Europa, are filled with people relaxing outside cafes and people going about their every day lives. It is definitely a place to sit, relax and people watch.
