Road from palermo to trapani

This is an odd question but can someone tell me about the palermo/trapani road? We have been advised to do the trip by bus rather than train, but I get travel sick on windy roads! If it is a straightish motorway I would be fine, but would rather travel by train otherwise, even if it takes longer. Thanks

We just traveled it and I can empathize with you. The road is fine for a bus and a person not travelling well on winding roads.

Maybe you could advise me also on a day trip to Marsala (from trapani) - bus or train?

The train is faster on this route than the AST bus, but you might consider any combination of transport that would be convenient for your schedule.
