Segesta: a dip in Greece

From Palermo, we will drive to the western side of Sicily to reach Erice (uptown). The Elymians settled the medieval town of Erice, which was an important religious site associated with the goddess Venus. Wander through its ancient streets and visit some of the famous homemade pastry shops—world-famous for marzipan candies and other delicacies like almond and pistachio pastries. Then we will drive through the Sea Saltpans of Trapani, where the ancient tradition of harvesting salt from the sea is still practiced.

After free time for a lunch break, we  will reach Segesta, one of the major cities of the ancient indigenous Elymian people, to visit the unfinished Doric temple (Admission Fee: not included), built on a hilltop just outside of the ancient city, where you can enjoy a stunning view of the surrounding area.
