Tràpani to Èrici


Here’s a road for when you want to leave sea level behind*—fast.

Tràpani‘s waterfront to Èrici, the hilltop town: about 7.5 miles. And Erice is at about 2450 feet.

Whew! Makes my ears pop just thinking about it (almost!)!!

* The trick is you have to journey to northwest Sicily to do it!

    I’m not even sure I could successfully navigate over the accent marks.

  2. Jay says:

    That route looks wild! It appears to be on a steeper face than the western side. Would be quite a bike ride down.

  3. Sammy says:

    I gotta say, I also wonder about the water supply; thatsalotta people—Èrici’s population is supposed to be >28K.

    JCB, try reading it backwards, that way you won’t get hooked.
