The train of Saline


In Trapani comes the “Trenino delle saline”. A service offered by the collaboration between the Elite Island agency and the Panfalone group, with the support of ATM Spa Trapani. This new idea was born for the tourism of Trapani and will link the historical center of the city and its port to the salt marshes. The transport service will offer visitors an evocative route that will lead them from the heart of the ancient city to the Reserve where the ancient salt culture has been practiced for about three thousand years.

For centuries the salt pans of Trapani have used the sea, the sun and the wind to create what has been called “white gold”. An “industry” so integrated that this place of work is the natural habitat of several endemic species of Mediterranean plants and also the resting place of dozens of birds, such as the beautiful pink flamingos, but also the Cavaliere d’Italia, recently sighted in the province of Trapani. The favorable climate, the suitable territory, the strong solar irradiation and the frequent ventilation, and finally the Mediterranean sea with its high salinity, have made this area suitable for the cultivation of salt.

This tourist link, in the afternoon, will give visitors the opportunity to experience a unique experience, or an aperitif with typical local products, immersed in the magical colors of the sunset in an unforgettable location.

The service will be active three times a week, on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. There will be two trips a day with the following itineraries:


  • 10:30 Departure from the Visitor Center at the port of Trapani
  • 11:00 Stop at the Salina Maria Stella (introduction on the saline by the WWF)
  • 12:00 Stop at the Saline di Nubia and visit the Salt Museum
  • 13:15 Return to Trapani with arrival scheduled for 14:00


  • 17:00 Departure from the Visitor Center at the port of Trapani
  • 5:45 pm Stop at the Saline di Nubia and visit the Salt Museum (free time for other activities: aperitif at sunset)
  • 19:30 Return to Trapani with arrival scheduled for 20:00
