  • Segesta, Erice and Salt Pans Full-Day Excursion from Palermo

    1. Segesta, Erice and Salt Pans Full-Day Excursion from Palermo

    This popular 8-hour itinerary takes you to see the most interesting sites of western Sicily. With your guide you’ll visit and explore Segesta, a Greek archaeological site. 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. This itinerary is also known as the Elimians's Road, named for the Elimians who were among the first inhabitants of this part of Sicily.

    Only my second day in Sicily, so was still getting my bearings. Marco came and picked me up bang on time and we set off through Palermo to pick up the others. Terrific driving and he gave us the history or Sicily whilst we journeyed to the west coast. There was enough time to see everything, although maybe another 30 mins in Erice would have been helpful. Come prepared with water, sun cream, insect repellent and a good pair of walking shoes. It also helps if you know a little something about Segesta and Erice before you see them as the signs only reveal pieces of history. A really lovely day out otherwise! However, I can imagine it would be hard in the high summer - I went in September 2021 and it was just cool enough to get around.

  • Levanzo Island: Genovese Cave Tour

    2. Levanzo Island: Genovese Cave Tour

    Depart from the Port of Trapani and take the ferry or hydrofoil which runs every half hour to Levanzo Island. When you arrive, your guide will be waiting to meet you.  Hop into a Jeep or a boat (depending on sea conditions) and travel together along the north-west coast. Admire the incredible Karst scenery - steep limestone cliffs that rise up above the water. Reach the Genovese cave formation which looks over a small creek hidden by typical Mediterranean vegetation.  Head inside the grotto where you will find the remains of a kiln that was historically used to make lime. Continue on into the deeper chambers where you will find 33 engraved pictures and about 100 painted figures. Gaze in awe at these incredible prehistoric works of art before making the return journey back the way you came.  Please note that if you drive to cave in a car, there will be a 700 m steep path to climb.
