This day excursion is designed for those who wish to enjoy the highlights of ERICE, SEGESTA, MARSALA.
When your cruise ship docks in Trapani, you meet your private driver at the port and set off in the comfort of a luxury vehicle to explore the most ancient and fascinating places in Sicily. The first stop is a journey into the past, at the time of Aristotele and Alexander the Great: Segesta. In a green valley, tucked among Sicily’s mountains, this abandoned city will bring you back to the time when Zeus and his mythical friends ruled the roost. Segesta, with its stunning Doric temple and fascinating landscapes from the top of Mount Barbaro, dates back to the age of “Magna Grecia” and the punic wars. Originally, the town was founded by the Elymians in 500-600 B.C., who wanted Segesta to be the political capital. Besides the Doric temple, Segesta is famous for the magnificent theatre: located on top of the hill in a beautiful position, from here it is possible to see also the Gulf of Castellammare (the commercial port of the Elymians). The theatre, built in the II century B.C., during the summer is still used as the set of classic and modern plays. Your visit goes on and the driver will take you toward the coast where the beautiful town of Erice is located. According to legend, Erice was founded by the Trojans while in exile from their own land. Walk up to Venus Castle, a breathtaking structure from the Norman period built on top of the ancient Temple of Venus. Take in stunning views of the city below from the castle walls. Next, head to the city of Marsala. Here, you will clearly see the influence of the Roman, Norman and Spanish civilizations, you will find an example in the Marsala Cathedral, that was built on the foundations of a preexisting Norman castle. Visit the 16th-century Church of St John the Baptist, famous for its underground vaults. In Marsala you have to taste the local excellent wine named after the city, so pay a visit to the archeological museum Baglio Anselmi, where Marsala wine was once produced. At the end of the Tour, your driver will bring you back to the port of Trapani. In the afternoon, return to Trapani port on perfect time to board your ship.
