San Vito lo Capo is a small town with lots of fun and exciting things to offer. If you're looking for a nice place to relax and loosen up, it is the perfect getaway to free yourself from stress and fatigue. If you take a bus, it usually takes 2.5 to 3 hours ride to reach San Vito from Palermo; while it only takes one and a half hour if you came from Trapani. However, if you rent a car and drive all the way there, you'll be cutting off a huge chunk of time from transport and gain more time for your relaxing excursion around the town.
One of the greatest factors that makes this town a must-visit is the heartwarming welcoming spirit of the townsfolk and villagers in San Vito. For nature lovers, the Zingaro Nature Reserve is the best escape from crowded beaches and just enjoy the quiet and serene environment of the mostly unspoiled nature of San Vito. For history enthusiasts, the Tonnara del Secco Ruins is a great place to take a selfie at with the ruins on your backdrop.
Among the must-see historical facades of San Vito is the 19th century-year old town hall Palazzo La Porta, and the old church Santuario di San Vito, which was once a military fortress before it became a religious place of assembly.
Most of the interesting sites in San Vito lo Capo are not closely located to each other. You may need to travel by road, but the journey is rest assuredly worth it. Although you can take the bus, renting a car is still the best recommended mode of transport if you want to hop around these amazing sites.
