We'll have an early departure to tour western Sicily, where we reach uptown Erice. The Elymians settled in the medieval town of Erice, which was an important religious site associated with the goddess Venus. Wander through its ancient streets and visit some of the famous homemade pastry shops - world famous for marzipan candies and other delicacies like almond and pistachio pastries.

Later we travel through the Saltpans to see the historic salt flats works, where the ancient tradition of harvesting salt from the sea is still practiced. Then, to an olive oil factory-farmhouse to enjoy a light lunch.

We continue to Segesta, one of the major cities of the ancient indigenous Elymian people, to visit the unfinished Doric temple (admission fee not included), built during the late 5th century B.C. on a hilltop just outside of the ancient city and has a commanding view of the surrounding area.
