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 port city of Trapani is located in the west of Sicily and is sometimes known as the "City of the Two Seas". It is situated on a strip of land that reaches out to see with two prongs, and is dominated by the Tower of Ligny and by the Lazzaretto. The town was originally named Drepanon and was initially a market outpost of Erice which was later a Phoenician trading port. Following this, it became a Roman province but the most significant impact on the town was made by the three centuries of Arab rule. Around the city there are many sites of interest including the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala, which is famous for its wine, and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. One of the best places to visit, perhaps for a day or two, is the three island archipelago of the Egadi islands, which lie just off the coast. Two of the islands can be reached from Trapani in only half an hour.
