From Palermo to Erice medieval village
The tour starts with a fast but comfortable drive from Palermo to Erice which lasts one hour and fifteen minutes approximately.

Once arrived at Erice you will be welcomed by our experienced guide who will lead you through the historic sites of the little medieval town. Climbing on the hilltop you will reach a point from where it will be possible to admire breathtaking views of the coastline, up to the Egadi Islands.
There will also be the opportunity to stop for the most famous Sicilian snack, the granita!
Discover Marsala and taste the sweetest wine
After touring the length and breadth of Erice, you will continue on to Marsala, but not before enjoying a delicious lunch. You will stop at a special location where the Sicilian gastronomic delights will be the absolute protagonists. During lunch, in addition to sampling traditional Sicilian dishes, you will be delighted by a wine tasting of local blends. Another product that is typical of this area is olive oil, and you will have the chance to taste some of its best varieties too during this private tour of Erice and Marsala. Trying the typical flavors of the land in which you are immersed is a great way to fully get to know the places you visit, so don't hesitate to enter into the culture of the place and enrich your wealth of experience.
Experience the spectacle of the salt road in Marsala
One thing you cannot miss if you are in western Sicily is a visit to Marsala. This small town is crisscrossed by a strip of land that connects Trapani to the sea, on either side of which is one of the most spectacular environments in Sicilian, the so-called Saline. Get ready to admire one of the most beautiful spectacles you will see in your entire life! The placid pools of water surrounding the white mills, together with the white salt mountains, create a romantic and almost surreal atmosphere. The colors of the sky mingling with that of the water evoke an almost surreal ambiance, in fact you will feel as if you are inside a painting!
Now that you have seen the beauty of this region of Sicily, you will be ready to return to Palermo with a baggage full of wonderful memories.
