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.

  • The cableway from Trapani to Erice is class. It has a dream view of the city and can detect even the salt salt. We were very glad they took instead of the car that we could park down for 2 euro. Erice was also great, not so good suitable only for the buggy of our babies. Dear carrying take!

  • After a day on the beach we go to Erice thinking to find a tiny village. We remain rather amazed by the beauty of this place!! many viuzzole full of specialty shops that display outside pottery of all kinds, pastry with Genoese great and finally a castle with views to die for!! must see!

  • Custonaci's grandmother, I visited Erice since childhood always finding it "magic". Gorgeous even in winter, when it fills up with fog and seems to live in a fairy tale
