Alcamo

Alcamo is the city of art and wine, one of the most fascinating places in Western Sicily. It is located in the province of Trapani at the foot (above 256 m) of the Monte Bonifato which is considered “the roof of Western Siciliy”. Its strategic position (halfway between Trapani and Palermo) opens to an enchanting landscape from Punta Raisi (on the East side) to San Vito Lo Capo (on the West side), in which lies the gulf of Castellammare.

Alcamo is well connected to other cities in the Western Sicily by a motorway  network free of charge. You can reach the two main airports (in Trapani and Palermo) in only thirty minutes driving. You can visit interesting places near Alcamo like the temple and the amphitheatre in Segesta where, in summer, there are a lot of celebrations and events; the Natural Reserve of Zingaro; the saltpans in Trapani, the ancient island of Mozia, Palermo and its magnificent monuments; Trapani and Museum Pepoli; Marsala and the museum of the Nave Punica (Punic ship); Mazara del Vallo and many other places which enrich the landscape of this part of the region.
