We are planing a 10-day visit to Sicily next August. Based on all the reading I did, I am considering western Sicily due to the high concentration of historic sites. Can anyone recommend a good home base? I am thinking a pleasant town with character, nice beaches, good restaurants and easy access so we could make day trips to Selinunte, Segesta and other sites... We will have a car and we would like to rent an apartment or a small house. Trapani could be an option but I read in several posts that it is a bit drab. Is it true? Cefalu sounds really nice but it seems further away from the region we want to focus on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
