It is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in all of Sicily.
If you are in Trapani, a visit to its nearest municipality, Erice, is a must.
This medieval village is perched on a rocky cliff at over 750 meters above sea level, and offers a splendid view of Trapani, the Egadi Islands and San Vito Lo Capo. It is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in all of Sicily.
Erice can be reached by car or you can take the cable car.
Once you reach Erice, I recommend you follow the signposted walk. It will allow you to visit all the places of interest in this country, without missing a single one. The most suggestive, surely, is the castle on top of the cliff. From there, the view across the Trapani valley and the sea really leaves you breathless!
Inside this village, you will also find many restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and pastry shops. The most famous is that of Maria Grammatico, which offers delicacies based on marzipan, cannoli and of course the whole range of Sicilian sweets.
Erice is a highly tourist village, you will meet many people between the entrance of the village and the road leading to the castle. But if you move away from the main road and walk along the cobbled streets, everything quickly becomes peaceful and quiet. After admiring the main attractions, take a walk through the lesser known streets of the country.
