7 hours tour in western Sicily


This tour wants to meet the needs of my guest that want to visit the western area of Sicily, or to take a day trip from Palermo in some of the most fascinating areas of the island! We can match the offer on your request. Selinunte and Segesta are very important sites that you can't miss, very quite and energetic places where, perhaps, you'll experience silence for the first time your life!
- Erice, Segesta & Salt Pans.
Visit three different sites. The road is really pretty with unforgettable views from the old street going up to mount Erice. See how sea salt is still collected off the Sicilian coast at the Salt Pans of Trapani. After a lunch stop we'll visit the ancient archaeological site of Segesta
- Marsala, Mazara del Vallo & Selinunte.
The region of Marsala was always known for its fine grapes, an introduction about Sicilian wine is a must! Than we'll admire the famous statue of Dancing Satyr in the beautiful museum in Mazara. In the afternoon, after a lunch stop, we'll visit Selinunte.

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina and her excellent driver Dario gave us a very nice tour of Corleone as well as surrounding areas. She picked us up at our hotel in Cefalù which was very convenient for us (some tour guides make you meet them in Palermo). She was flexible and took special care to customize our tour by suggesting ideas that made the most sense for us. Specifically, she took us to the street where my grandmother was born and helped translate a conversation with some of the locals who currently live there.
