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 town of Toulon lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the east of Marseille in the Var department of Provence. The town is located around a rocky bay and is sheltered by the rocks of 'Faron" which are topped by ancient fortifications. Due to its sheltered position the town's harbour has developed into a large harbour and is home to the French Naval fleets. Visitors to the town will enjoy strolling around the Old Town which is characterised by a number of restored buildings and narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. A popular attraction in the town is The Arsenal of Toulon which dates back to the time of Henry IV and was inaugurated in 1680. It is entered via a 1738 portico and contains many paintings, such as the beautiful picture by Antoine Morel Fatio (19th century) called 'The port of Toulon in 1854', there also paintings by Emil Mathon, with the 'Retour de l'Admiral de Courbet aux cendres salins d’ Hières'; Vincent Cordouan and the 'Combat de Vaisseau, the Romulus, 13 fevrier 1814', and by J. Vernet is 'Les Vues des Ports de France'.
