Trapani - Erice, Trapani

(4.5/5 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.

  • Funicular from trapani € 9 adults and € 4 for the - 16, offers a great experience, beautiful views of trapani and the Aegadian Islands. One downside the racket by the local mafia for parking is paid without a ticket. So we Park more far.

  • The cable car will take you in this beautiful old neighbourhood with remarkable churches: the Chiesa matrix with its Gothic stucco ceiling and the Chiesa Di San Martino in particular are remarkable

  • Whole route to this place is amazing ;) Unfortunately we were unable to see castle
  • 1 star for the only ATM machine (Bankomat). It has loan shark fees. Bring cash to Erice this service is highway robbery.
  • The gateway to the main thoroughfare. Plenty of paying nearby.
  • The Medieval gate to enter Erice.
