We then resume cycling along a picturesque coastal road, mostly traffic-free, first reaching the location of Tonnara di Bonagia and then the Trapani Cable Car station. We'll take this, bikes in tow, to ascend to the medieval village of Erice, located on top of Mount San Giuliano. From this high position, we'll enjoy the spectacular views of Trapani, the Egadi Islands, and the salt pans. Once in Erice, we can freely visit the historic center, with its medieval streets and suggestive views and taste the famous belli e brutti or tette di monaca, typical almond pastries.

If we're lucky, we will surely come across some species of Mediterranean migratory birds present in the reserve's ponds. We then continue along the Trapani coast, accompanied by splendid views of the Egadi Islands, until we reach the pier for the island of Motya.

Tour through the alleys of the Mazarese city center and stop in front of the Agostino Pepoli museum to admire the Dancing Satyr, a masterpiece of Greek art. We then resume cycling to reach Mazara del Vallo, where we'll stay overnight, and after settling our luggage in the hotel, we have free time to explore the city center or relax on the beautiful beaches.
