Arab tour

The tour will focus on the Arab period of Sicily and in particular of western Sicily from 827 to 1091. We will also cover the subsequent period up to the Muslim persecution in the mid-13th century. We will visit the most interesting places closest to the starting point of the tour, related to this long historical period.

We will visit the most Arab place in western Sicily: the casbah in the historic center of Mazara del Vallo, is more than an hour's drive from Trapani.

Along the itinerary we will cross the natural reserves of the salt pans, the city of Marsala and obviously Trapani. Therefore, I will take the opportunity to focus on other historical aspects of western Sicily and other Arab influences.

It is also possible to stop at lunchtime in a selected Arab restaurant for a specific Arabian food experience.
