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.

  • A beautiful city that you do not expect, so much life in the evening, great food and kindness from everyone, both solutions used for accommodation in the city they met, better still a structure for only an overnight stay in order to enjoy the most local gastronomy. Erice differently than even worth a visit during the day is a little overstated, in fact it is very touristy and overall a complete tour is a bit expensive ...

  • Located at the top of a mountain, was covered with fog that created a unique atmosphere for a visit. Medieval, like being at a stage set up for a period film. Narrow, cobbled, pedestrian streets. Perhaps present some difficulty to someone with motor problems. A place not to be missed on a visit to Sicily.

  • Beautiful old city on the top of the mountains. Very nice views to Trapani area. Accessible with cable car or vehicle (paid parking from 9 to 24).
  • Just an entrance door with historic significance
  • Beautiful old town, enjoyed the sights and sounds 😀
  • Erice is absolutely worth a visit. You enter the city through the Porta Trapani.
  • Smell bad but nice views.
