A must see for anyone who reaches Sicily’s shores is, without a doubt, Palermo, Sicily's capital and visiting card which is only 40 km from Trappeto.  
From the port of Palermo one can take a ferry to the island of Ustica - 1st marine resort of Italy, famous for its remarkable seafloor flora.

Another stop could be Corleone (40 km) - whose name is associated with the movie "The Godfather" - but is also especially important due to the C.I.D.M.A., that is, the International Centre for Documentation on the Mafia and the anti-Mafia movement (possibility for guided tours in English).

If we must limit ourselves to only the most significant locations within a short distance of Trappeto, and not even all of them at that, we need to move westwards to Erice (65km).
This is an ancient and picturesque medievil village overlooking the city of Trapani (which is 50km from Trappeto) and from there you can reach Marsala in no time; the city of wine and salt.
