Travel to Nubia and the Salt Pans in Trapani, and admire the Sicilian coast and natural landscapes en route. You’ll also stop at Erice, a medieval hilltop town.

Very nice three places that are difficult or impossible to reach without a car. Price/performance top. You practically book a group taxi and explore the places for yourself for 1-3 hours. Incredibly beautiful and very different places. Great for a full or 3/4 day trip. Very nice and good driver.

Good tour of 3 places - loved Erice. Pick up & drop off from hotel helped . Well suited smart guy picked us up. Unfortunately our tour guide was useless . She hardly spoke 2 sentences before each stop . Didn’t have a rapport with any of us . Didn’t tell us how long to get to places , didn’t give any information about the places we were visiting . Would have been better to have more time in erice as lots to see . This medieval village was fantastic & bustling .

I enjoyed Segreda and Erice but Trapani salt pans not - nothing much to see, no information available, couldn’t even buy famous salt! for the travel time (particularly as we were combined into large group on big bus - not what was promised) I think it would be better to do half day visits separate trips with small group and active guide for history.
