Trapani and province.

Trapani is the main city under the mountain where Erice is located.

Near Trapani: Egadi islands ,(small and beautiful).

San Vito Lo Capo: small town located in a valley surrounded by spectacular mountains. Beach popular for Italian vacationers.

Mazara Del Vallo: its port gives shelter to the largest fishing fleet in Italy; many examples of Arabic architecture

Segesta and Selinunte: famous Greek archaeological sites.

Palermo and province.

Several monuments of different ages, archaeological remains, quaint neighborhoods, and good restaurants. A list of restaurants and pertinent prices is at the bottom of this file. Some areas are very quaint, for example Ballarò and Ucceria, where typical street markets take places. Nevertheless, thieves may occur in these places: do not go around with showy jewelry or large purses. Other large parts of the city are safe, neat and comfortable. Visits to monuments do not require to cross the somewhat dangerous, yet interesting, poor areas mentioned above.

Monreale

It is located near Palermo. Within the municipality (on the top of a mountain) there is a huge, impressive Cathedral that absolutely deserves to be visited. On that mountain you can also find beautiful places dedicated for picnic.

Agrigento

Farther from Erice. Rich in Greek monuments, including a suggestive Greek site. Various suggestive places (and nice resorts) are located around Agrigento; in particular, Eraclea Minoa and La Scala dei Turchi. Both these places are characterized by suggestive littorals, very clean sea water, good restaurants (for either fish or meat) near or on the beach.

Sciacca

Much closer to Erice than Agrigento, with nice monuments, famous (in Italy) thermal baths, beautiful shores, many good restaurants and pizzerias, such as Steripinto, La Grotta, Porto San Paolo, etc.
