Full day tour to explore western Sicily
We take the panoramic road - to the archeological zone of Segesta. In ancient times, this was an important town of the Elymians, most probably the survivors of the Trojan War. Not too much has survived of the old town: Most impressive, though, is the wonderful Greek temple. During our visit, we study the principles of Greek architecture and enjoy the wonderful landscape around the temple.
Erice was once inhabited by the mysterious Elymians, who were possibly the survivors of the Trojan war. Elymian traces can still be found in the mostly medieval town of Erice, which is situated high up on Mount Erice. Already on our way up the panoramic road to Erice you will have marvellous views over the town of Trapani and the Mediterranean Sea. Arriving in Erice we will start our town walk, beginning at the old town gate Porta Trapani. From there, we walk to the magnificent gothic mother church.
Drive to Segesta, guided visit of the Temple then proceed to Erice, guided tour of Erice.
