Trapani - Erice, Trapani

(4.7/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Trapani - Erice connects Trapani to the medieval mountaintop town of Erice along a 3,099 m (10,167 ft) long cable. Cables cars with eight seats run along a single looping cable. There are special cars for people with disabilities and for bicycles. Erice perches on a rocky mountain often wreathed in clouds. The difficulty in accessing Erice has rendered it something of a time capsule, with its medieval castle and stony churches. Narrow cobblestone streets host quaint shops and small restaurants, which serve cannoli and other Italian delicacies. Soak in views of Sicily and the sea at every turn. You also can reach Erice via a winding road. Put Trapani - Erice into our Trapani family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Trapani.

  • Erice is a beautiful village that is worth a visit, so walking around the streets and if possible watch the sunset!

  • Like to travel back in time a number of decades. Nice town with small restaurants. Nothing fancy but real. Nice excursions up the mountain by cable car or out along the coast to fishing restaurants. Do not miss to wait on the public bus! Just an experience in other time rhythm.
