    Riserva Naturale Saline Di Trapani E Paceco
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    It starts from Piazza Garibaldi, in front of the maritime station, at the port. In 10 minutes we will reach the first saline "Maria Stella", where we will admire the first mill built here in Trapani. We proceed to the second saline "Chiusicella", with its tanks that stretch as far as the eye can see towards the sea, we can see flamingos, herons, knights of Italy etc ... that nest in this area and where we will understand how salt is grown. The last saline will allow us to enter an ancient mill of over 600 years, now a museum, to discover how the various tools were gathered, how they worked, what role the salt held in this place and the differences between past and present. We will taste the crystal of salt and its most prized part, the flower of salt, natural and flavored with orange, lemon, rosemary and oregano .... a unique and tasty tasting. We will make the path of the salinar, which will allow us to walk among the various salting tanks. Depending on the time of day, the salt pans take on a different color, from blinding white, to blue, to all shades, from yellow, to orange, to pink during sunset.

The tour was really enlightening and learning the history of salt was very interesting. Our tour guide, Alessio, was also extremely knowledgeable about many local subjects and the Trapani area. He was punctual and made our day very pleasurable.

We had a salt tour with Alessio and it was great! Took us to the salt plains and explained and to the museum. He showed us the good spots for the best pictures of the sunset. Get your tour with him, he is very good in English.
