The Italian island of Marettimo is one of the Aegadian Islands that lie in the Mediterranean Sea to the west of Sicily. It is the second largest of the Aegadian islands and has around 300 inhabitants, which increases to roughly 700 in the summer when the tourist season is in full swing. Tourism, traditional handicraft and fishing are the main sources of income for the island's inhabitants. During Roman times the island was an important observation point which is why Casa Romana exists. It is from there that passing vessels could be observed as routes between Italy and north Africa and Italy and Spain would pass the island. Located adjacent to Casa Romana is a restored Byzantine-Norman church which is worth visiting along with a few impressive grottos dotted around the island's coast. There are also many places to swim in the island's crystal clear waters off the western coast although they are only accessible by boat.
Marettimo is around 40 minutes by hydrofoil from Favignana, and an hour from Trapani.
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.
