Erice, Sicily

Erice is a breathtaking Medieval town located on the west coast of Sicily. It is lined with cobblestone streets and is a step back in time.  We stayed at a beautiful, quaint hotel called Hotel Moderno. The hotel had lovely artwork in the hallways and restaurant. The picture above was in the lobby above the entryway to the hotel.  The other pictures we took as we climbed to the terrace on the roof of the hotel.  From there we could see the islands off the coast in the Mediterranean and the narrow streets below.  On a clear day, you can even see the tip of Africa.

The town is approximately 2600 feet above sea level and you can take a cable car up from the town of Trapani below.  Erice is surrounded by walls and visitors need to park outside of the walls while staying here.  It is truly unique and beautiful place to see.
