Here’s the answer to the question “What to do in Trapani if it’s raining?” if you find yourself in Trapani on one of those rare summer days when it’s raining!

Don’t feel unlucky! Take advantage of the opportunity to engage in one of the activities recommended by the staff at “Trapani: Istruzioni per l’uso”. Of course, not all of them may suit your preferences, but fortunately, rain in Trapani is often brief, so even just one suitable option should suffice.

You’ll notice that among the suggested alternatives, only a few are feasible on foot or with public transportation. This is because having a rental car is, in most cases, a winning choice, especially in rainy weather. Keeping an eye on the weather conditions is particularly helpful in those instances where a short drive from Trapani can lead to a beautiful – or at least decent – day.

In summary: it takes very little to plan and make even a rainy day truly unforgettable.

At the seaside even when it’s raining

Have you ever experienced the invigorating sensation of taking a swim in the sea under the rain?

In cases where it’s just a light rain without lightning, it could be ideal not to be discouraged by the first drops and still head to the beach. In an activity that already involves getting wet, you might not even notice it!

*Be cautious not to turn the experience from “invigorating” to “electrifying” – to be avoided in case of lightning.

A bit of Shopping

Certainly, a beautiful sunny day tends to inspire a desire for a leisurely stroll, exploring the city, and dedicating some time to shopping. However, on a rainy day in Trapani, our suggestion is to take advantage of shops in the city center, both for souvenirs and clothing. These shops are conveniently close to each other and indoors, providing an opportunity to pass the time that could be crucial in overcoming the rainy spell.

Using “Piazza Mercato del Pesce” (pictured) as a reference point and facing the Statue of Aphrodite, the various shops are located along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the avenue that begins right in front of the aforementioned square.

Small moments of enjoyable relax

It’s raining, but the temperature remains pleasant. We suggest treating yourself to a granita from Colicchia, well-known in Trapani, or, transitioning from tradition to innovation, enjoying a relaxing session at the Salus aesthetic center. Located in the historic center of Trapani, Salus allows you to immerse yourself in total relaxation and intimacy. Among the many services offered, you’ll find a Turkish bath, sauna, Jacuzzi shower, and a whirlpool tub. We have no doubt that you’ll leave with a big smile on your face!

Both are located in the city center, with Colicchia on Via delle Arti and Salus-Private Spa & Beauty on Piazza Sant’Agostino 14.

Wine tour or hot water springs

Embarking on a gastronomic journey is an unmissable experience of colors, aromas, and flavors! Taking advantage of a moment of rain, then, is brilliant!

Imagine immersing yourself in the history, art, and dedication that lie behind each sip of excellent wine during a guided tour of the local wineries. You’ll have the opportunity to savor some of the finest wines, deciding whether to pair them with traditional local dishes. Every element is treated with meticulous care, creating a thoughtfully curated experience! For those who are not wine enthusiasts, we instead propose a relaxing time at the hot water springs in Segesta. The establishment features two pools (one suitable for children) fed by thermal water and a natural Roman-era sauna known as the Grotta Regina. The water is utilized here for baths, mud treatments, cave therapy, inhalation, and insufflation to address arthrorheumatic, respiratory, skin, and circulatory conditions.

Move, and the raina won’t follow you!

You’ve just arrived in Trapani, and you didn’t think you’d need to rent a car—actually, you ruled it out completely! Maybe you don’t even have your driver’s license with you?

Not good, not good at all!

Public transportation connecting Trapani to nearby cities does exist, that’s true! But it’s certainly not ideal for those who want to venture out temporarily while waiting for the sun to return, without necessarily staying overnight elsewhere.

That’s why, often, renting a car proves to be the winning choice for a vacation in Trapani. At that point, you can move just enough to avoid the heavy clouds. Often, just a few kilometers away, not only does it not rain, but you may also find a beautiful day!

Mothia, Marsala, Mazara del Vallo, San Vito Lo Capo, Palermo could be excellent destinations for this purpose.
