The Experience

Enter the monumental portal to the inner courtyard. This gorgeous, grandiose, 18th-century palazzo stands on a wide pedestrian street in Trapani’s historic centre, lined with shops, restaurants and fabulous churches. Duck down side alleys, live like a local.

Relax in your room, with its pattern tiled floors and charming furnishings, and maybe a kitchenette or ornate balcony. Down below, in the B&B taverna facing the street, the food is great. Enjoy a Trapanese pasta lunch or a candlelit dinner and watch Sicilian life go by.

You’re only 50m from the Porta Ossuna beach, or take the cable car to Erice, a fortress village famous for its views. Spot the Egadi Islands; the beaches of San Vito Lo Capo; the watery expanse of salt pans. Drive the stunning 30km Via del Sale, catch the ferry to Favignana. Here you can rent bikes and discover the Palazzo Florio, the old ‘tonnara’, hidden coves, and endless long white sands.

Trapani is a fascinating seaport city and a stay at Ai Lumi has you placed centre front for local living. Breakfast is a feast, freshly renovated rooms harmonize with the ancient palazzo and the Rizzo family are natural hosts guiding guests to all the right experiences. A walk over to the ferry landing for a day on Favignana island or down to the salt mines in Mozia are a must!

The neighbourhood

The B&B is on the main thoroughfare of the old centre of Trapani. Lovely shops and cafes are on the doorstep, and you can walk everywhere, from Villa Margherita Park to Ligny Tower. The ferry is three minutes, the station 15, and the cable car to Erice an hour. Visit the fish market; watch the boats unload their catch; check out the shops on the huge tree-lined Via Giovanni Battista Fardella.

Riccardo & Francesca Rizzo

Riccardo and Francesca are an enterprising food-and-hospitality pair who opened the taverna in 1994, and, some years later, the B&B. They live on the first floor so are around all day, as are their delightful team. Across the street is a small stores stocked with produce from their farm.
