I road the steep road from Trapani up to to ancient Erice. The ride was difficult but I was rewarded with beautiful and historic ancient Erice. The town is a must visit for anyone traveling in this beautiful part of Sicily.

We spent quite a few hours in this town. Definitely worth the drive from Palermo. The scenery along the way is quite beautiful. The town of Erice is quaint, lively and a must see on your visit to Sicily. Many small streets with beautiful eateries...More

We both drove and took the cable car. Both are worth doing for the different views. The town is incredibly beautiful. Many winding streets and the castle definitely worth the trek uphill. I would imagine that it gets very very busy in the summer. Worth...More

A 15 minute ride with great views of Trapani, the sea and all around. Sounded easier and faster than the switchbacks up to Erice. Really nice town when you get there. Would have given a four star had not there been a 20 EUR protection...More

We took a driver and did Segesta, Trapini and Rrice. The first two were great. Erica is a tourist trap. Lovely setting but dozens of schlock houses selling real junk. Worst of all: we stopped at the wooden booth at the entry to town that...More
