Full Description

In the mountain behind Trapani, stands a medieval village, now a city of science, rich in traditions, history, local crafts and breathtaking views.

In the mountains behind Trapani, stands a medieval village, now a city of science, rich in traditions, history, local crafts and breathtaking views. In a half-hour drive up the mountain, showing glimpses that span a panorama from Marsala to San Vito Lo Capo, we reach Erice Vetta. Surrounded by walls, the town is visited on foot, entering through Trapani, where a series of small alleys will lead you to discover the landscapes and corners of a truly characteristic village. Once called "the city of 100 churches," the tour begins with a visit to the bell tower and cathedral and continues the journey by meeting the other main churches. As we enter more and more into the small village we will be able to observe the ancient art of weaving Ericini carpets, famous all over the world and still made by hand. You cannot miss a stop to taste the typical sweets of Erice and the famous "genovesi". Continuing through the many intertwining narrow streets, we can also observe the many remarkable ceramics hand-painted in bright colors of yellow, blue and red. Going from the Spanish quarters, we will finally reach the castle and the Pepoli tower that will give us breathtaking views.
