I am planning on 3 nights in Palermo and taking several day trips to surrounding towns. Is it better to drive to Trapani and stay overnight or is it better to take a tour from Palermo? I would like to visit Monreal, Cefalu and Palermo from Palermo. After 3 nights in Palermo pick up a car and drive west/southwest. Now I am rethinking and may stay perhaps 2 or 3 nights in Trapani for day visits to Erice, Segesta, Marsala. How far is the drive to Trapani from Palermo? I could not do this without all of your great advice. I am certain I will be posting questions in a few days for my journey from Trapani to Agrigento, then to Syracuse.
