Favignana Island (Sicily, Italy)

Situated some seven kilometres west of Sicily (Italy), Favignana Island (Isola di Favignana in Italian, also known as the big butterfly - 'la grande farfalla' - because of its shape) is part of the Aegadi Islands and is known for its beaches, volcanic caves and ancient fishing technique of tonnara. The island is a centre of the tuna-fishing industry.

The closest airport is Trapani Bergi (TPS), from which one can take a hydrofoil to Favignana (a 30 minute trip) or a ferry (which takes longer).

Looking for an island vacation before summer ended, Leng caughts a flight from Bergamo's Orio al Serio airport (which is near Milan) to Trapani, a bus to the port, and a hydrofoil to Favignana. From their base at La Plaza Residence at Favignana they rented bicycles to explore the island's beaches (which are rocky), go snorkelling in the clear waters and taking photos.
