  • Hire a boat and visit Carla Rossa

    Carla Rossa is a bay on the island of Favignana. It is very well known and very popular not only with the locals on the island but day-trippers from Marsala and Trapani. There is nothing there except blue water and dramatic cliffs. You can access the bay from land but why would you, as it involves a hot and dusty drive with a great swim at the end...

  • The Favignana garbage collector

    This is the garbage collector on the island of Favignana. He is a big man and he drives around in this very small vehicle. I was torn as to if this is something to see or a warning or danger. Should you visit Favignana …. well he is a mute, and has on occasions he has screamed at the odd tourists much to the amusement of the fishermen but he is in...

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great bar and restaurant over looking the port of Favignana and the guys that run it will look after you and the food is good be it for a meal or a snack . It is a great spot for that first drink after a day on a boat and deciding what to do with the evening.

    Favorite Dish: Fish of the day. Why? Look at it! It don't come no fresher.

Isola Favignana Transportation

  • To Favignana from Trapani

    Ferries leave from Trapani to the Egadi Islands regularly they mostly travel to Favignana, Levanzo and back to Trapani. The ferry to Marettimo is less often. Look into current prices and travel info at these web sites.http://www.tirrenia.it/http://www.siremar.it/Hydrofoils are more expensive than the slower ferries that take cars but they run more...

  • Going West of Palermo, take the bus.

    Ok this is a quick and easy tip. While the train system thru most of Italy is great (Or Fantastic by Australian standards) the train line from Palermo to Trapani is not. After telling someone this and having her ignore me I had the added frustration of waiting for her at the end of the line. Take a bus, they run more often and are more reliable....

    Favignana Wedding

    by jeffmartinartist Written May 31, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In a small island community like Favignana, if someone is getting married it is customary for the father of the bride and the bridal party to walk through the streets of the town to the church. The entire town will come out to watch the procession and it really is quite an event to behold. I hope you get to see a wedding procession like this one walking through the main square of Favignana.

    Favorite thing: We have tips for, how to get there, what to eat and how to away but what about understanding a bit about the place. OK go to http://www.jeffmartin.com.au/ and click on the word Favignana in the intro blurb. It will tell you a bit about Favignana.

    Fondest memory: my time there
