The picturesque and charming town of Erice is one of the most attractive tourist resorts, not only in Sicily, but throughout the Mediterranean area. It is located at the height of 750 meters, from which you can admire all its medieval glory: alleys and courtyards make you feel like time has stopped.
From here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view from Trapani to the Aegadian Islands where, at sunset, a fantastic set of colours appears in front of your eyes and the rays of the setting sun are reflected in the whiteness of the saltpans. Thousands of tourists crowd the streets during the whole year and, as Erice hosts the Centre for Scientific Culture “Ettore Majorana” since 1963, there are also many scholars from around the world.
