The Italian city of Trapani is located on the island of Sicily and is the capital of the Province of Trapani. The city's history dates back to the Elymians and is an important fishing port and the gateway to the Egadi Islands. Popular attractions in the city include its churches in general and its restored cathedral in particular. The Cattedrale di San Lorenzo was built during the 14th century and underwent a later Byzantine facelift. Also popular in the city is the Chiesa del Purgatorio which contains the sculptures that are carried through the city during its famous Easter procession. On Good Friday these twenty wooden statues, known as the Misteri, are carried through the streets by robed citizens.
Located away from the city centre are the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala which is famous for its wine and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. Another popular excursion when in Trapani is to visit the nearby Egadi islands which can be reached in around 30 minutes. They are the perfect place to relax, swim, scuba dive or just to potter around.
From Trapani's port, ferries leave for islands like the remote Pantelleria as well as Naples, Cagliari in Sardinia and Tunisia.
The French city of Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur and is a world famous cosmopolitan tourist destination and is perfect for sun lovers.

Another popular pastime whilst in the city is to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which dates back nearly 200 years and borders the city's Mediterranean Sea coast and runs for about 6 km. There are many beautiful spots along the promenade where visitors like to sit and take in the spectacular views. The coastline of Nice is full of tourist attractions, and nearby there are also a number of appealing Côte d'Azur towns and cities. Also close to Nice are many traditional Provençal villages, which are full of character.
