First I will let you discover the beauties of Trapani and its coast up to Marsala, then together we will discover the magnificence of the temples of Segesta, then those of Selinunte, arriving up to the spectacular Valley of the Temples of Agrigento, included in the World Heritage UNESCO List since 1997. Returning to Trapani, we will stop at the Tonnara di Scopello and in Castellammare del Golfo. Are you ready to go?
