Erice is a small medieval town on top of Mount Erice. It is fortified with a wall. The monks in the old monastery were famous for making the “mustazzoli” biscuits. Now it has become a tourist attraction. The view from Erice is breath-taking.

Erice can be reached by cable car or by bus from Trapani.  Cars aren’t allowed unless the owners are residents of the town.
