10 Visit the most fascinating villages in the area: Erice, Custonaci and Bonagia.
Erice, is amongst the most beautiful villages in Italy, it keeps intact its medieval charm, magically you find yourself immersed in the story and myth of the goddess Venus.
Custonaci, just few minutes away from San Vito Lo Capo, overlooks the Gulf of Bonagia. Here the sea and the mountain blend into a unique landscape. We are in the heart of the Monte Cofano Nature Reserve and within walking distance of the sparkling Cornino beach.
Maritime village par excellence, Bonagia has all the charm of a place related to the past. The tower of its ancient Tonnara is fair on fishermen's boats and it is still possible to see the boats, called Muccia, with which the tuna rivers were going to fish tuna.
