Segesta Erice and Salt Pans Full Day Excursion

This itinerary is always popular with clients from all over the world. It is a stress-free day that gives you a little idea of Sicily in just one day.Visit three different sites: Segesta, an archaeological site; Nubia and the Salt Pans in Trapani, that show you the Sicilian coast with its beautiful landscape and nature; and Erice, a Medieval town. The road is really pretty with unforgettable views from the old street going up from Trapani to mount Erice (old monte San Giuliano). All three sites are not far from Palermo. Thanks to this day trip, you have more time to explore all sites. This itinerary is also named "the Elimian's Road," because the Elimians are one of the first inhabitants of this zone in Sicily.The ancient Greek name of Erice was Eryx (Έρυξ in Greek), and its foundation was associated with the eponymous Greek hero Eryx. It was not a Greek colony, as the Phoenicians founded it, but was largely Hellenized. It was destroyed in the First Punic War by the Carthaginians, and from then on declined in importance.Eryx was conquered by Aghlebids in 831 and was renamed as Cebel Hamid (In Western sources Gebel Hamed, meaning Mountain of Hamid). It was ruled by Arabs until the Norman conquest. In 1167 the Normans renamed it Monte San Giuliano. It was known as Monte San Giuliano until 1934.Guide included with the minimum number of participants.
