The French city of Nice is located on the south east coast of the country and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. It is the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region's second largest city, after Marseille. Over recent years the city has been experiencing an economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution. For centuries, however, Nice has been a popular destination for tourists and is within driving distance to other tourist destinations in the region including Cannes, Antibes and Villefrance-sur-Mer. The city caters for the high end traveller, with a number of luxury hotels mainly located around the Promenade des Anglais, down to the most price sensitive, with an equally good selection of backpacker hostels and cheaper hotels. The villas of Nice have never been more popular, with the most exclusive having the best views of the French Riviera coastline, with others looking inland towards the surrounding hills and vineyards.
In the heart of the city is the port which provides ferry connections to Corsica, Calvi, Bastia, Ajaccio and L'Ile Rousse. Passenger facilities at the port's two terminals include a tourist information office, car parking, showers, toilets, public telephones and a baby changing area.
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.
