Car hires in Trapani: practical information
Where to rent a car in Trapani
Italy-bound with Venice and Trapani on your radar? Catch flights to Trapani-Birgi Airport from London and pick up a Trapani car hire when you arrive. A car hire is the easiest way to explore Sicily and the airport is by far the cheapest place to get one. Choose from Avis, Europcar, Locauto, Hertz, Maggiore, Sixt, among others.
It’s also possible to pick up your Trapani rental car from the city centre. Be sure to compare prices though, as it might be cheaper to pick up at the airport.
Driving in Trapani: parking and other tips
Trapani isn’t a very big city, which is why many visitors will often choose to explore the city centre on foot instead of by car. For getting out of the city though, rental car is best. Sicily has so many places on offer, like Palermo and Marsala, just a short drive away.
For parking, be sure to book a hotel in Trapani that has a car park available to guests.
Road trips from Trapani: what to do, what to see
This small town is well worth a visit from Trapani with a rent car. Park at the bottom of the hill and take the cable car up to the hilltop town. From there you can wander around easily on foot and soak in the atmosphere.
For beautiful beaches and spectacular bays, head to the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo). They are all very close to Trapani and easy to reach via ferry. You won’t regret it! Just remember to bring a packed lunch for a seaside picnic.
See yourself transported through time when you visit Segesta’s incredible ancient Greek temple and theatre. The Doric temples dates back to 430 BCE and features 36 Doric columns. It’s a great day trip from Trapani and can be found along the way to Palermo.
