Erice Segesta and Castellammare del Golfo

Travel in Italy as an Italian


Erice is an unforgettable medieval hilltown with ancient origins in Sicily. The sober historic town is surrounded by defensive town walls, crowned by a castle, and dominates the surrounding area.


The ancient Greek temple of Segesta can make a valid claim to be the best preserved in the world, and its amphitheatre boasts a hilltop position on Mount Barbaro second to none.

Castellammare del Golfo

The town of Castellammare del Golfo is located in a stretch of coast where the high rocky walls alternate with sandy beaches and intimate coves. The landscape is very suggestive and you can admire breathtaking views in every corner and foreshortening, an ideal destination for photography lovers who make this landscape a real travel postcards.


Crunchy on the outside and soft inside the "Genovesi di Erice" are delicious cakes filled with custard, of a unique delicacy.

Theater of Segesta

The theater of Segesta is located on the northern slopes of Mount Barbaro. Quite well preserved, it has a cavea of about 63 m of diameter, partly cut into the same rock and partly built and supported by a wall with limestone blocks. The upper part of the cavea, now lost, was perhaps surrounded by a mighty semi-circular supporting wall. Under the cavea, a sacred cave was explored, where Elymian rites were probably held.
