To see the best of Sicily, you have to climb to great heights. And on this trip you'll do exactly that. After a coach drive to the cable station, you’ll take the cable car up to the top of a mountain. Take in the view out over the Trapani salt pans, the turquoise sea and all the way to the Egadi Islands - it's breathtaking. While you're up here, you'll explore the Medieval town that is Erice. Wander the winding cobbled streets. Visit the Mother Church that's stood here for over 700 years. And admire the Castle of Venus where the son of Athena, goddess of love, built a temple in his mother's honour. But save some sighs for the gorgeous Balio Gardens in all their rainbow bright glory. Last but not least you'll have time to enjoy the atmosphere in Erice’s dinky plaza, before you take the cable car back down to the ship.
If the cable car cannot be used for operational reasons, a coach will be used instead. Knees & shoulders must be covered when visiting any religious sites in Italy. This tour is not suitable for those with walking difficulties.
