Fascinating Sicily

As I plan our trip to Sicily, the more I read about the island, the more it fascinates me. We will probably end up staying in Trapani as a launching point for Favignana and the Egadi islands and then stay in Scopello for a couple of days and Balestrate on our last night.

There are several islands located off of the coast of Sicily... Salina, one of the isole eoilie, was the location for Giuseppe Tornatore's beautiful Il Postino and this article on its caper festival is excellent. Salina is just 1 1/2 hours away from Sicily and is near other amazing islands like Vulcano and Stromboli.

The famous tonnara di Scopello
There aren't a ton of lodging options in Scopello... some prefer to stay in Castellamare del Golfo but we want to be close to the Riserva Dello Zingaro. So, some of the hotels we are considering in Scopello are:
I think we're leaning towards Corcella although the food at the Pensione is reputed to be amazing!? Tough choice...
