 Trapani and Erice: Salt of the Earth

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises 

We returned to Trapani on the island of Sicily, and our reception could not have been warmer.

In mid-November, with winter around the corner,  we enjoyed a superb summer-like day along the sea and up in the mountains.

On this visit,  I went with a group of guests up the mountain to Erice, starting at the sea salt pans in the harbor and then climbing the switchback road up the hill.

Some photos follow.  For more about Trapani,  see my blog entry from October 6, 2014.
