How to Spend a Day in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily

How to Spend a Day in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Castellammare del Golfo, Italy (B)

When planning my trip to Sicily, I thought I knew all the main places I should visit. But the town of Castellammare del Golfo should have been on that list and it wasn’t. Lucky for me, I was able to squeeze in a day there at the tail end of my trip. Allowing a day in Castellammare del Golfo turned out to be perfect as it let me see this modest town on the north coast between Trapani and Palermo.

Could I have spent longer here? Certainly. Castellammare isn’t a huge town, nor is it loaded with attractions. But in terms of atmosphere and small town vibes, this seaside spot has it in spades. Few places I visited in Sicily could match its relaxed feel as it seems like a great place to unwind. So, I do think you should take the time to visit Castellammare del Golfo while in Sicily as it’s worth it, even for only one day.

Castellammare is situated right up at the western end of Sicily’s north coast, sandwiched between Trapani and Palermo. These two big destinations easily overshadow the town and its 15,000 residents.
