To escape the heat in Trapani head up to Erice. The cable car ride is worthwhile, even if your visit coincides with a huge cloud obstructing your views!

Using the cable car to visit the beautiful medieval village of Erice is a must. We were advised by our hotel to use this rather than drive up, as the view is better from high up and they were absolutely right. There is great parking...More

This place is beautiful. A must to visit to Trapani and Sicily. Erice is located on top of a high hill overlooking Trapani and the coast. The views are outstanding. The town is so beautiful, very old, lots of history, churches, wonderful cobbled narrow streets....More

Although I came to Trapani by car and could have driven to Eriche, I opted to take the funivia in order to save the drive and the time it will take.

I road the steep road from Trapani up to to ancient Erice. The ride was difficult but I was rewarded with beautiful and historic ancient Erice. The town is a must visit for anyone traveling in this beautiful part of Sicily.

Bus lines 201, 202 and 203 will take you there. Check out Trapani- Erice Cableway on the web. This shows bus lines on a map.
