  3. Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Erice, Italy
    The Ulisse Camere is located in a quiet area of Erice, with some views overlooking Trapani and the Egadi Islands, but a bit of an uphill walk to the city center. Erice sits on top of a mountain, San Giuliano, and walking here is rather up and down de…

  7. Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Erice, Italy
    Having visited in Erice, Sicily many times, I had the misfortune to stay here once, but also to visit it many times. It was built in the 1960's and still looks like it. Not much ever seems to change here in the way of improvements and it is an establ…
  8. Free! "Hotels & Accommodations" in Erice, Italy
    This is an update to an earlier review I did on the Ermione Hotel in Erice, Sicily, from 2005. I had a chance to re-visit this hotel in 2014 and found it closed and abandoned. It’s not really surprising as it had been in some state of neglect ever …

  9. Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Erice, Italy
    The Elimo Hotel is considered one of the best in Erice as far as elegance and style goes, but it's rather expensive too I think, and there are other good choices in Erice that are more affordable. The hotel is one of the first you will see on enterin…

  13. Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Erice, Italy
    Previously I reviewed the Elimo Hotel (http://www.travbuddy.com/Hotel-Elimo-v554914) in Erice and the Moderno is actually a close relative of the Elimo in location. In this hotel you will find a mix of styles, not quite like the Elimo in elegant ways…

    If you like archaeological ruins, then Selinunte is something to see in the south western region of Sicily overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It covers quite a large area and may be one of the largest archaeological parks in Europe. Some say it rival…
