There is undoubtedly something magical about traveling through western Sicily, and Trapani certainly  figures into that landscape. Given the long history of the place, there is a wealth of things to see in terms of cultural heritage such as the beautiful Baroque buildings of Rua Grande, the old fish market at Piazza Mercato del Pesce (today an imposing structure), the small Museo dellaPreistoria e di Archeologia Marina, which deserves a visit not only for its collection of finds discovered in sunken ships, but also for the views of Trapani and the nearby Egadi islands its upper floor offers, and the superb Pepoli Museum. 

This museum, which is housed in a stunning former Carmelite convent, holds a superb collection of artefacts, as well as paintings and sculptures, (including works by Gagini). Accompanied by our cultural guide, we will take a walk through the history of the city and beyond, gaining a better understanding of the timeline of it all.

After lunch, we set out to explore the medieval town of Erice, which is perched at 750 meters above sea level. Strolling through the town’s medieval cobbled streets, we will make various stops to take in some of the town’s treasure troves, which include  the Norman Castle and the Cathedral, elegant baroque palazzi, delightful Gothic and neo-Gothic churches, middle-age castles, and numerous Carthaginians vestiges.

Duration: up to 7 hours.
