    Riserva Naturale Saline Di Trapani E Paceco
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    It starts from via admiral Staiti n101 (fire brigade barracks), at the port. In 10 minutes we will reach the first salt mine, the "Maria Stella", where we will admire the first mill built here in Trapani. We proceed to the second "Chiusicella" salt pan, where we will explain how the cultivation of integral salt takes place, we will be able to see flamingos, herons, knights of Italy, etc. The last salt pan will allow us to enter an ancient mill of over 600 years, now a museum, to discover how the various tools were collected, how they worked, what role the salt played in this place and the differences between past and present. We will taste the crystal of salt and its most prized part the fleur de sel, natural and flavored with orange, lemon, rosemary and oregano ... and to conclude we will carry out "the path of the salt maker" a suggestive walk inside the salting tanks .

The most romantic sunset in the world!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Alessio is a wonderful guide, very informative and precise about how salt is being made but also very funny. Such an interesting place to discover and seeing the glorious sunset over the saline was one of the most romantic moments of our stay in Sicily!

Fantastic time- 10 points
We spent marvellous hours with our guide Allessio at the salt mine and the lagoon. He is an extremly attentive and open minded person who travelled a lot and has seen the world. So he knows about people and how to handle them. His knowledge about his country and his professionality stand for itself. We could not have met a better guide for this tour. It was a pleasure to have his company during these days. It will stay forever in our hearts.

The tour was really enlightening and learning the history of salt was very interesting.
Our tour guide, Alessio, was also extremely knowledgeable about many local subjects and the Trapani area. He was punctual and made our day very pleasurable.

Best guide you could ask for
Jun 2019
Following our tour of the salt pans, we booked another 2 excursions with Alessio. The tour itself was interesting and enjoyable with a lovely surprise of wine, cheese and delicious bites to finish it off. Alessio is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about his city and his enthusiasm is contagious. Best time, thank you Alessio from your friends in Australia.

Trip to the salt plains
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a salt tour with Alessio and it was great! Took us to the salt plains and explained and to the museum. He showed us the good spots for the best pictures of the sunset. Get your tour with him, he is very good in English.

Excellent Tour of the salt pans
Jun 2019 • Family
Alessio took us on this tour. His english is very good and he is extremely informative as to the history of the salt pans. He picked us up from our hotel in his air-conditioned van.
The museum he took us to was really interesting again with staff there who spoke excellent english. We went at sunset so it was really beautiful. For an extra payment, Alessio organised a table with wine and antipasto so we could watch the sunset. I recommend you take up this option. Thanks very much Alessio for a unique experience.

Great salt pan tour
May 2019 • Couples
We booked the salt pans tour with our hotel and was referred to Alessio. We had a great time learning about salt harvesting and watching the beautiful sunset. The tour ended with a light apero of local produce from the nearby restaurant. Recommended!

Great Salt Tour with Trapani Emotions
Oct 2018 • Couples
We booked a tour through Egatour, a local agency on the waterfront in front of the ferry jetty. All fell into place as planned and we met Alessio at the appoint time and date and were taken on a 2 hour trip past the flamingos feeding, to the salt farm and museum. There an explanation of the process was given in excellent English. We were able to wander around the museum and later walk around the salt drying pans without any time pressure, take photos of the sunset and generally muse on the ancient art of salt farming.

We would thoroughly recommend the tour and Alessio. he was an excellent guide with considerable experience who spoke English well. He had worked overseas and clearly quickly tuned to our interests. He was kind thoughtful and genuine in his enthusiasm for Trapani and Sicily as a tourist region - an excellent ambassador for the industry.
