Early envigorating walk in Erice. Bigger than it seems. The garbage bags hang on the wall so the many cats and dogs of Erice don't make a mess. The pavement is a grid made of stones.
In order for the EU to work every citizen of every EU country must play a schizophrenic game that involves having at least two identities. Fully accepting to be a eurpean citizen while keeping a strong awareness of cultural and historical heritage.
Hotel Moderno provides an OK room with a wonderful little balcony which sits one for about $110.
We follow the coast in the direction of Palermo, through Piana Delle L'Albanesi and a very disappointing Corleone. Norman Lewis warned us about the change that this town has undergone in his book "In Sicily" (2000) (ISBN 0-330-37552-0).
We stay the night in Sciacca at the Grand Hotel of the Thermal Baths (room 105, with a nice view on the sea, above the entrance, was $120), a nice example of mid-sixties architecture.
