Aegades in greek means island of goats, and then the Egusa also took the name of Capraia, believing it to be inhabited by wild goats, as he relates in the book Homer's Odyssey.
 It also had the nickname Aponiana Insula, and was later called in Latin Favoniana and Faugnana or Favignana in Italian.


Favignana is the largest island of the Aegean archipelago, in the province of Trapani.
 It can be reached from Trapani with the ferry in 50 to 60 minutes, with the hydrofoil takes about 30minutes.
 The island allows it to be traversed by any means of transportation, bicycles, scooters, cars, and that can be rented easily on site.
 The frequency and the number of trips from Favignana to the mainland varies depending on the season. However at night there is no public transport so as to reach or leave the island.



Favignana has an area of 16 square kilometers and 32 kilometers in circumference.
Many roads that make up a rather extensive and widespread network are unpaved, but driveways on foot, by bicycle, motorcycle or car.
