Places visited

Favignana is the largest and most important of the Egadi Islands, three islands off the western coast of Sicily. Favignana has good, frequent ferry connections with the other islands and with Trapani; the proximity of Trapani Airport makes the island remarkably accessible from the rest of Europe. This easy access hasn't - yet - spoiled the island, which is a fairly low-key destination most visited by Italian holiday-makers. Although there are tourist amenities, the island's character seems little-altered, and travellers who come here are happy to fit in with the leisurely island way of life. One of the charms of the Egadi Islands is that they have never been populated with villas of the rich, nor frequented by the showy, and no out-of-character attractions have been developed for tourists, so compared with the crowded tourist islands of Capri and Ischia, and the chic atmosphere of some of the Aeolian Islands, Favignana and its Egadi siblings have a refreshing simple authenticity.

Castello di Santa Caterina Sicily, Italy

Castello di Santa Caterina(シチリア, イタリア)|Favignana island(Sebastian Jagiełaさん)

The castle, called the Forte di Santa Caterina, is officially closed to the public, but when I visited it was easy to enter the decrepit building and expore its extensive interior and terraces, all crumbling away in a state of abandonment.

La Playa Italy

La Playa(イタリア)|Favignana island(Sebastian Jagiełaさん)

Favignana has several small beaches, some of which, though popular, are fairly hard of access. One of the most sought-after bathing spots is Cala Rossa, a pretty bay with turquoise sea.

Visitors turn up on bicyles, scooters or in boats to drape themselves over rocks, or wade out from the pocket-handkerchief sized sandy beach.

Castello di Santa Caterina Sicily, Italy

Castello di Santa Caterina(シチリア, イタリア)|Favignana island(Sebastian Jagiełaさん) - 02

Ever since the Roman era, Italians have used their offshore islands as prisons, and Favignana still fulfils this function. A prison, built on and around the site of a Norman castle, sits close to the centre of Favignana town.

noleggio egadi Sicily, Italy

noleggio egadi(シチリア, イタリア)|Favignana island(Sebastian Jagiełaさん)

Favignana's shape is often fancifully compared to a butterfly; it is composed of two flat stretches of land on either side of a high rocky spine, topped by a decaying fortress.

ここ最近注目されてきているイタリアにあるランペドゥーザ島。こちらは海の透明度が高すぎてなんと船が宙に浮いているように見えるのです。 ベストシーズンはたくさんの船が浮いている7月〜9月。私は7月に行ってきました。 主にイタリア人のバカンスの場所とされているようで、私が行った2014年はまだイタリア人以外の観光客はほとんどおらず、英語がほぼ通じない場所だったので情報を集めるのが大変でした。しかし小さい島なので一度わかれば簡単に観光できます。 こんな絶景を見られる場所は他にあまりないと思います。 ローマから飛行機で約1時間半なのでアクセスはしやすいです。 私が今オススメしたいNO.1の場所です♡ ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー <詳細> ローマから2泊3日 ローマ(イタリア)⇆ランペドゥーザ島 飛行機代往復約2万 交通費 約1000円(市内でのバス) ホテル代 2泊 約1万5千円(1人当たり/2人) 食費 約5000円 クルーズ代 約4000円 計 約45000円
