Just that the funivia doesn't run in inclement weather or high wind, and that you would take a bus or walk out to the funivia station at Casa Santa.

AST runs buses from Trapani as well.

Dear Vagabonda,

My parents will be in trapani during the holy week for 4 days. From some research and reviews i was going to suggest a visit to erice and obviously the procession. 2 things i would like to ask you:

1. from where does the procession pass? perhaps i could book a hotel which has a balcony from where they can enjoy the procession.

2. while there are many other things, what would you suggest they visit? they are a mature couple in their 60's

One last thing, is it possible to message you via email or on this site without posting public?

The Processione dei Misteri di Erice begins on Good Friday at 14.00 and continues for six hours until 20.00.

The procession meanders throughout Erice, and you can find the entire route on the Comune di Erice website.

Consider Hotel Moderno or Hotel Elimo on Corso Vittorio Emanuele.

The Processione dei Misteri di Trapani begins on Good Friday at 14.00 and continues throughout the night for 24 hours until 14.00 on Saturday. With an early arrival, you might try to see this local custom and tradition.

Segesta is a top attraction to visit!

Questions and responses posted on the forums benefit all travellers, and everyone is then able to participate.

Hi Vagabonda

I´m interested in this subject as well. Following your suggestion, I'll be in Trapani for the Holy week and I booked the Hotel Fardella Centrale. Are there any drawbacks in stay at this place? is it a good choice for those who have a car? Thanks as always
