Erice

You will be absolutely charmed by the beauty of Erice, a picture perfect medieval town perched on top of a mountain over Trapani. The village can be reached either by car or by taking a gondola from the bottom, and is more than worthy of a visit: the Castello di Venere, of Norman origin, and the Castello Peopli, which dates back to Saracen times, are stunning, as are the birds eye views of Monte Cofano, San Vito Lo Capo, Trapani and beyond. The alleys in town are perfect for strolling: if you have a sweet tooth, don’t pass on local specialties sold in the village’s famous pasticcerie.
