Trapani - Erice, Trapani

4.5
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Trapani attractions like Trapani - Erice can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • There is neither a little exaggeration that Erice is a place that you see being in the area. You can get a queue or a cheaper version by bus. In the summer, I recommend to go in the evening before sunset. Then the colors are beautiful. Be sure to visit the local desserts with canoli. For sure we will be back.

  • While in Trapani it can not pass through Erice is a town that did not pass from the 17TH century, beautiful, over the mountain, if it is in auto it does not frighten you the winding road, it is quite safe. The entrance has a bar where you can have a fantastic chocolate.
