“L'arcipelago delle Egadi è formato da tre isole: Favignana, Marettimo e Levanzo, dallo scoglio di Maraone e dal piccolo isolotto di Formica. Ogni isola ha una particolare conformazione e una sua particolare caratteristica, tutte fanno parte di un'Area Marina Protetta. Favignana e' l'isola più grande dell'arcipelago, le sue spiagge spettacolari sono tra le più belle d'Italia: meritano una menzione Cala Azzurra, Cala Rossa o Lido Burrone. Levanzo è la più piccola isola delle Egadi e regala spiagge isolate ed incontaminate, come quella di Cala Minnola e la famosa Grotta del Genovese. Marettimo è l'isola perfetta per chi ama le immersioni e il trekking vista mare. Si possono visitare le tante grotte marine facendo un'escursione in barca.”

“Principale arteria della città storica è caratterizzata da eleganti palazzetti settecenteschi. Al suo inizio si nota l'arioso prospetto a tre ordini, ornato di statue e colonne, del palazzo Senatorio, architettura barocca eretta nel 1699-1701; accanto è la torre dell'Orologio (sec. XII), una delle cinque raffigurate nello stemma della città; più avanti, a destra, è la chiesa del Collegio, iniziata nel 1636, con a lato il barocco ex collegio dei Gesuiti. Proseguendo lungo il corso si raggiunge la Cattedrale, innalzata nel 1635, e la chiesa del Purgatorio, dove sono custoditi i «Misteri», venti gruppi lignei settecenteschi portati in processione il Venerdì santo.”
