You've probably never heard of Erice in your life, and that's sounds good. As a matter of fact, Erice is an historical town in Sicily, close to the bigger Trapani. Basically, one of Erice's main characteristics is to be located on top of a mountain, namely the Mount Erice, at around 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level. Fortunately, a cable-way has been built so as to allow tourist as well as local people to enjoy such a panoramic view. Due to its location, most of Erice's monuments offer a breathtaking view that allow visitors to see the magnificent Italian island from above.
