What To Expect
From Palermo Hotel, we will drive to the western Sicily where we reach Erice (uptown). The Elymians settled 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 will travel onto Segesta, one of the major cities of the ancient indigenous Elymian people, to visit the unfinished Doric temple (Admission Fee: not included), late 5th century BC, built on a hilltop just outside of the ancient city and has a commanding view of the surrounding area. Afterwards, you will be driven back to Palermo.
