Enjoy a visit at the magnificent Temple of Segesta, located in western part of Sicily.
It is the first Greek Temple built in Doric style. The Temple has 36 columns, still intact despite the several earthquakes which effected this area in the history. We also visit the theatre, which is a typical example of the Greek semi circular theatre style.
Your next stop will be the medieval town of Erice, situated 880 metres above the sea level and surrounded by ancient Elimi and Phoenician walls on the northeastern side of the city.
Two castles make for a spectacular skyline to this town, Pepoli Castle, with foundations dating from Saracen times, and Venus Castle, dating from the Norman era but built on ruins of the ancient Temple of Venus.
Surrounded by a lush park, the hilltop castles alone are worth a stop in Erice, which offers charming old stone streets and medieval churches.
Interesting is to visit the Cathedral built in the 1300 in Gothic Catalan style with mirable decorations where we can see the picture of the famous black Virgin venerated in the area.
You will stroll the village and taste the famous marzipan cakes made with almonds in different flavors (pistachio, pinots, orange, lemon and so on..) by the famous pastries shop "Grammatico".
Return to the port.
