Overall Guide: Go up by cable car: you are guaranteed a show, even if it's hazy. Maria pastry shop: a treat for all tastes. Lose yourself in the streets: you will get lost without trying, and it's worth doing. The castle: a scenic spot worth seeing. Lunch: any place is probably fine, traditional Sicilian food, taste guaranteed.

The city also houses medieval churches like the original Orthodox Church of Saint John the Baptist, Church of Saint Ursula and Church of Saint Madonna.

Overall rating: 10
Overall Guide: Serenity, cleanliness, exceptional, though austere, beauty and sensational vistas...all these describe Erice. The city park, at the top of the town, is as lovely as any I can think of and the views make it even more beautiful. There are several good accommodation options and good restaurants (especially Monte San Giuliano), and Maria Grammatico's famous pastry shop cannot be missed.
Not to be missed:
Norman castle & the Balio
,
Punic walls
,
Duomo
