Here are pictures from the inauguration of MEET CAFE’, a new bar/pastry shop which opened in Trapani on Monday, December 6. What a fun evening! Lots of pastries, croissants, babas, cakes, pies, cassatelle, genovesi and tons more sweets as well as juice and of course, coffee, espresso, cappuccino and so on. You will find Meet Cafè on Via Marconi in Trapani.
The original Meet Cafè is in Paceco, a little town about 15kms from Trapani.
Just for your information, a bar in Italy is not the traditional American bar, but a cafè where they also sell drinks, but it’s mainly a coffee place.
Newly opened LIDL and McDonald’s have caused quite a stir in Trapani.
LIDL was welcomed by mostly everyone. But not so Mc. Those against said we don’t need junk food because we have such great food in Trapani; those for, said that Mc would create many jobs.
The controversy still goes on and it will continue, but, judging from the children’s reaction, McDonald’s is here to stay!
Scarpe & Scarpe,one of the most famous shoe chain stores in Italy, has arrived in Trapani, not exactly in the city, a bit out of it but it’s only about 10 minutes by car, or less. It caused great excitement in Trapani and its province.
Scarpe & Scarpe sells all kinds of shoes and boots, high quality but affordable prices. Shoes for both men and women. They also sell hats, umbrellas, socks, scarves, sweaters and jackets.
Erice is a small medieval town on top of Mount Erice. It is fortified with a wall. The monks in the old monastery were famous for making the “mustazzoli” biscuits. Now it has become a tourist attraction. The view from Erice is breath-taking.
Erice can be reached by cable car or by bus from Trapani. Cars aren’t allowed unless the owners are residents of the town.
Trapani is situated between two seas…the Tyrrhenean on the North and the Mediterranean on the South… so there is lots of air circulating. The winds blowing are the tramontana, maestrale and scirocco.
Here are some pictures of the Northern coast on a “very” windy day in Trapani.
Villa Margherita is a small park in the city center. It has a playground, a mini zoo with ducks and geese swimming in a small, and not so clean, pond. There is also a stage where musical performances and operas are arranged in the summer.
