The medieval town of Erice, situated on Mt. Erice and overlooking the city of Trapani and the Tyrrhenian coast of western Sicily, has been continuously occupied for over 2500 years. Those who have left their cultural footprints and architectural calling cards include the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans. Later came the Arabs and the Normans. Today, visitors can visit the two remaining castles, Venus and Pepoli (now a hotel), and wander the cobblestone streets in search of the local specialty, couscous and fresh fish.
