Travel to Nubia and the Salt Pans in Trapani, and admire the Sicilian coast and natural landscapes en route. You’ll also stop at Erice, a medieval hilltop town. Enjoy spectacular views throughout the day. All of the sites are relatively near Palermo, meaning that you’ll have plenty of time to explore each of them.

A good day combining Segesta , the salt pans and wonderful Erice. I wish there had been less time in Segesta where there is only the Greek theatre and temple remains and more time in Erice. The bus driver was great and the bus always on time. Beautiful scenery throughout the day. Well worth it!!

Picked up at the scheduled time at 8:00 am at our hotel, our guide was very pleasant. Arrival in Segesta at 09:00, good surprise access is free on Sunday, we just pay 4 euros (for two) for the bus that takes us to the theater. Meeting at 10:30 am in the car park we leave for the salt marshes, a little disappointment because in reality it is only salt marshes on the side of the road, no pink flamingos, no bird elsewhere in the reserve. Fortunately the climb to Erice catches up with the day, 2 free hours on site to visit and eat; the view from above is magnificent, the small medieval town is charming. At 4 p.m. we leave, drop off at the hotel. Very good day.

Joshua was an excellent guide and the small group made it possible to spend a good amount of time in three very different locations. The salt museum was very interesting- never thought about how salt made it to the table. before! Tasted some fabulous arancini and gelato in Erice from where the view is amazing. Loved this day out!
