Private Wine and Panorama Lovers Delight Tour to Marsala
Spend your time in a relaxed way getting a taste of the old traditions
Sicily has more vineyards than any other Italian regions competing for first place as the largest wine producer. The island is renowned for the many outstanding wines, some of them produced in the wine capital of Sicily, the city of Marsala, which gives the name to the world-famous wine.
The nearby salt pans with its characteristic old windmills, are inside a beautiful area protected by the WWF, right on the coast between Trapani and Marsala. The salt produced in this area is part of Slow Food Italian Presidia.
Erice, with its unique location, just about 2500 feet above sea level, it overlooks nearby Trapani and the salt flats, and is surrounded by a lush park and hilltop castles, which offer charming old stone streets to stroll and several medieval churches to investigate.
From Trapani drive along the pleasant SALT FLAT coast till Marsala. On the way we’ll do some photo stops nearby the old windmills. Arrive in charming MARSALA for wine tasting in one of the area’s historic wineries. The town preserves a cosy center with its cathedral from the norman times, even though it was heavily bombed during WW2. Learn more about the Marsala-wine making process and the fascinating history of local viticulture during a visit at a local WINERY. Continue to ERICE where a stroll trough the cobblestoned streets of the medieval town will take us to the public garden located nearby the ruins of the Norman castle. The view from here is stunning.
