We will drive to the Trapani Salt Pens, inside an important WWF oasis, surrounded by nature with a breathtaking landscape. It is possible to admire specimens of Heron, Swans, Pink Flamingos.
Then we will drive up to Erice, a medieval town located at 1000 meters above sea level, with a breathtaking view of the city of Trapani, the Egadi Islands and the salt pan, the Zingaro Reserve and the marble quarries of Custonaci.
