Motorhoming in Sicily | Biking to to the Birds Nest that is Erice
What a place to grab a bike ride in Sicily! The hilltop village was wonderful, it felt like life a million years ago… and we could even imagine the Good Friday friars parade heading up the cobbled streets and past the pastry shops towards the central church…. It has been around for centuries, passed between new civilisations such as the Phoenicians, Carthargians, Romans yet it has an almost French (Norman) feel with its towering grey walls… One to visit if you’re ever in Sicily!
There are some truly amazing climbing faces here at El Bahira on San Vito La Capo…. it’s apparently real attraction for seasoned climbers and novices…plus there’s a real community feel this morning… perhaps helped by everyone battening down the hatches to avoid the winds from last night…
Multiple hairpins and staggering views later we arrived, only to strand ourselves before we started in the narrowest of the inner streets.. mental notes made, we must park outside in future!!!! Duly sorted, we grabbed the bikes and headed out again!!!
Every region should have Something special
The forecast is terrible tomorrow… orange warnings for rain, thunderstorms and wind… we might not venture out tomorrow!!! Time for some more baking blogs me thinks….
