During last years the increasing of non motorised demand, particularly in touristic locations, led to develop landscape planning itineraries in peculiar urban, historical-cultural and environmental systems. In this paper the naturalistic landscape and historical area of “Saline" of Trapani is analysed. In the past, especially during last decades, there was a strong development of little communities in its hinterland, whilst there was not a similar road network development. That created both accessibility and communication problems in these areas. In this work the feasibility study of a set of actions to improve the slow and sustainable mobility within the study area was evaluated. Considering the touristic data, a transportation demand analysis, considering the particular shape of the area and the regular presence of the sea, was elaborated. Specifically, an integrated system of maritime and cycling new routes able to connect all the main touristic sites and the other little community areas. The integrated transport system elaborated is defined inside that area with high touristic potentialities, close to the two main cities of Trapani and Marsala and to the two relevant transportation terminals of Birgi airport and Trapani harbour.
