Advice and services to get to Favignana

Favignana does not have its own airport but it is well connected by sea with the main towns of Western Sicily, Marsala and Trapani. From Trapani it is possible to get to Favignana in about 30 minutes by hydrofoil (fast ship) or by ferry (for those who travel by car or motorbike). To reach Favignana you need to get to Sicily. Let's find out how.

For Sicilian residents, getting to Favignana is easy and cheap. You will just reach Trapani or Marsala and board to Favignana, choosing from hydrofoil (fast and more expensive), ferry (slower but cheaper, and with the possibility to take a car or motorbike) or private transfer (rubber dinghy, motorboat, sailing boat). For those who have their own car but do not want to board it, it is possible to leave the car in several parking lots, particularly in Trapani. 

For those who choose La Casa dell'Arancio, our staff provide assistance for reservations (also for Car/motorbike parking in Trapani). 


For those who need to get to Sicily before, it requires that you choose between ferry and airplane. In the first case, there are daily connections with Palermo. In the second case, you can choose between two airports: Palermo airport and Trapani airport.
