Its elegant rooms are set over 3 floors of an ancient palace and are furnished with marble bathrooms, parquet floors, antique furniture, and Murano-glass chandeliers.

The hotel also offers an enormous pool with hydro-massage jets, a sea-view restaurant, and a delightful, rooftop cocktail bar.

The location of Badia Nuova couldn’t be more ideal as everything Trapani has to offer – sites, beaches, dining, and shopping – is just outside. Each of its spacious and stylish rooms includes a kitchenette and the mesmerizing views from its chic rooftop terrace make it the perfect spot to watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail before heading out to experience the passeggiata.
