I went in the summer, but don't forget to bring a sweater or a jacket, preferably waterproof, because the temperature difference compared to the plain is very noticeable! You can find yourself enveloped in thick fog and decidedly cold ... :-)

Santa Bonagia is an ancient village with a fishing hut which has been turned into a tourist centre. Custonaci with his live nativity scene. Stagnone, Mothya with the ruins of the ancient city, reminiscent of the battle between Carthage, Syracuse and Rome. Marsala with its wineries, vineyards and of course the ever-present wine, the saltworks with the windmills.

Excellent cuisine that appeals to everyone's palate, savoured in a setting of incomparable beauty that comes from far away. The welcome you receive makes the holiday even more special and every dish contains ingredients from the earth and the flavour of time.

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.

I would say that the best time to go is any time, all year long. I went there in September and I got a day with clear skies and it was very nice, you could see the sea and the islands. It's a beautiful village perched on the mountain, with many souvenir shops. Always carry around a scarf, even if it is a hot day, there is always a trace of wind.

Erice is a great town. I didn't come across problems with accessibility but my advice is to avoid heels and shoes with slippery soles. The constant up and down of the streets and the "mirror" pavements are suitable for shoes with rubber soles!

The cuisine is traditional Sicilian, therefore local. Don't miss the almond cakes and more, because they are delicious and the recipes used are still those of cloistered nuns, great. The ceramics and traditional Trapanese nativity scenes made of red coral are beautiful.

It's a beautiful town. The magnificent cathedral, the walls of Erice, the cobbled streets, beautiful churches, the Castle of Venus, the gorgeous scenery on all sides and the unmissable and inspirational sunsets make a visit to this village unmissable, it's one of the most beautiful in the world.

Erice is to be explored on foot. Wear comfortable shoes and don't be in a hurry. Every corner is a paradise. The view of the coast from on high is fantastic. You feel as though you're on a plane. The temperature is cool and often windy. Erice is a town to savour, not to eat.

Erice, a historic town in the Province of Trapani, is located in Sicily, Italy. Located on the top of Mount Erice, the town overlooks the city of Trapani and the north-western coast of Sicily. The city has a total population of around 30,000 inhabitants.
With a typical Mediterranean climate, this town is shaped like an equilateral triangle; it is quite hot during the summer months and pleasant during winters. Any time is suitable for a visit here. 
Erice, a former important Elimi city, was initially known as Eryx, named after the Greek mythical hero, Eryx.  Following ... More the defeat of the town at the hands of the Carthaginians in the First Punic War, its significance gradually declined.  
Tourism is an important source of economy in Erice.

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
