2002 Map

Exploring the city of Trapani, founded by the Elymians to serve as the port of the nearby city of Erice (ancient Eryx), which overlooks it from Monte San Giuliano, and is still an important fishing port and the main gateway to the nearby Egadi Islands, and incidentally discovering brioche gelata (an oven-warm and crispy bread roll filled with Sicilian ice cream and quickly to be eaten on the spot).

Taking the local bus to the medieval hill town of Erice (about 750 m above sea level) and enjoying the marvellous views overlooking the city of Trapani, the low western coast towards Marsala, the dramatic Punta del Saraceno and Capo san Vito to the north-east, and the Egadi Islands on Sicily's north-western coast.

Provisioning for the next months which we were going to spend in unknown Tunisia at the well-stocked Conad supermarket in Trapani which excelled in its great delivery service.
