Erice is one of those little towns that are a reason to love Sicily. If you catch a cheap flight to Trapani and are wondering where to get some spectacular views, head over to Erice. While Trapani is not huge, it has a feel of a city, still. Erice, on the other hand, is a small village you can tour in a few hours, time for a capuccino included. While literally all the Erice guides recommend taking the cablecar to get up to the village, here I am with my empty pockets – really, hiking up to Erice on a sunny day is a treat of a view.
