Castellammare del Golfo extends around the Norman, Arabic castle, built on the sea, whose charm has never changed over time. The port is the biggest attraction of the town: in the early morning, you see the fishermen go out to sea in their typical white-blue fishing boats, to later return with delicious fresh fish. You can enjoy a cocktail, Sicilian wine, homemade ice cream, or a refreshing Sicilian granita sitting on a terrace overlooking the harbor.
