1. Trapani: Trapani Salt Pans and Paceco Sunset Tour
Grab your camera for a sunset van trip to the Saline di Trapani e Paceco nature reserve. Snap pictures of flamingos, avocets, and other birds. Check out the flats where salt has been harvested for centuries. Meet your driver and guide at your hotel before heading outside the city to the reserve. There are almost 1000 hectares for the birds to wander. Bring your telephoto lenses or binoculars for a good view of them while keeping a respectful distance. Visit the historical buildings that have been turned into a museum. Learn how people have gathered salt at that site for centuries. Check out the windmill, another prime subject for photographers. Watch the sun set over the Mediterranean. Capture the colors reflected in the salt pans, a few final shots of the birds, or some selfies before you return to Trapani.
