Great way to get to Trapani from Erice, and see the views. Worth a round trip ticket. The views going up and back are unforgettable.

The bus from the old part of Trapani to the cable car takes about 15 mins but using the cable car avoids having to drive and negotiate Trapani

Only 3 normal buses a day going from Trapani. Easier: Take buses 21/23 from several stops from the old town- on Sundays buses 201/203). All these buses not only stopping at the old port but serving a few stops (like Via xxxGennaio). The Funivia stop...More

There is no doubt this is the fastest way up to Erice. 20 mins. It is a long cable car which despite its battered state is undoubtedly fine (for reference, I am nervous of them so ignore me if you are not) It is 9...More

The cable car is a great way to get to Erice. There's plenty of parking at the base station and it takes around 15 minutes to reach Erice. Cost was 9€ per person return and was not busy. Lovely views!

I can highly recommend the cable car journey to and from Erice. The journey takes around 15 minutes each way and the views are amazing. Spending some time in the cobbled streets of Erice is also a great experience.

This is an easy and fun way to get from Erice to Trapani. The price was 6.5 euros one way in Oct 2017. You can fit your luggage in easily.

We walked from our hotel in Trapani to the cable car (5km)...as driving in Trapani is a nightmare. It was not a hard walk, if you like exercising. The cable car is great and affords some terrific views over Trapani and the water. I would...More

According to the site it is closed for wind. I think that maybe it depends on the daily weather

On no account miss the cable car: it drives home how monumentally high Erice is, and offers intriguing views of Trapani below. I would recommend a taxi from the port, but agree on a price beforehand as is common throughout... More
