Meet your driver/guide at 8:30 AM. Departure to tour western Sicily where our first stop is hilltop Erice, founded by Elymians and settled by Phoenicians whose walls are still standing. The goddess Venus was worshipped here, near what is now a castle. The charming medieval streets are full of interesting niches, like the pastry shops offering local specialties. Next we travel to coastal Trapani to view the historic salt marshes and windmills. Later, we'll visit an olive farm for a snack (this is included in the tour price). This afternoon we continue onto Segesta, originally an Elymian settlement later Hellenized, to visit the Doric temple (admission fee not included), perhaps the best-preserved Greek temple in the world. Then we return to Palermo.
If there are more than eight persons in your tour you'll have a tour-director who travels with you. If there are fewer than eight persons in your group you'll have a driver-guide. Tour directors and driver guides cannot lecture clients within certain archaeological or historical areas, so they will explain the history of the sites before you enter.
Erice, an important religious site associated with the goddess Venus, famous for marzipan candies and other delicacies like almond and pistachio pastries
Segesta, one of the major cities of the ancient indigenous Elymian people, with the unfinished Doric temple of the late 5th century BC. The visit to Segesta Temple will be independent.
