Perfect representation of this whole town

This town is the crappiest town in the Western world I've ever visited, and the hostel is a microcosm of that. Seems like it could be great if anyone cared enough to keep it up. Nobody cares, and it rots away. Don't stay here, but better yet--don't come to this city.

This mission was a bit more challenging than one might think. Although Sicily produces a lot of olive oil and a whole lot of wine, finding information in English on what to buy and where is pretty hard. After some detective work, Karen got a lead on an olive oil production ...

We didn't have a set time to start today, and had the morning to explore on our own, so we joined our new friends Sandra and Frank for a walk. We saw the 12th century church, Chiesa di S. Maria, which was originally planned as a mosque, so it contains stunning Byzantine mosaics. Next door there was a much smaller and very simply decorated church, ...

Our first stop was after winding up a large hill to view the 5th century Temple and Theatre. Next was another set of hairpin bends expertly negotiated by our bus driver, while we enjoyed spectacular views down towards the coastline. The picturesque medieval village of Erice was expertly built at the top. We wandered the cobblestone streets and in one of the piazzas a film crew ...

We left Trapani at 10 AM on Friday by bus retracing the route back to Palermo arriving about noon. After checking into the hotel and having lunch we attacked the city by Hop on Hop off bus! Palermo has done a pretty good job of mixing the old with the new. Much of the historical area remains intact while a new modern city has expanded outside. It's pretty chaotic in the narrow old streets, many now of which have been closed to traffic. ...

When we opened the shutters this more we saw that it had been raining. It had stopped though and there only a few clouds in the sky. Breakfast at the hotel has improved since the first morning. It is different each day which is good. They always have freshly filled cannoli and cakes but the savoury things change which are what I prefer. John's sandals were coming apart so bought some new ones. Saw some in a shop ...
