We took a boat out to the island which was founded by the Phoenicians in 8000 BC and inhabted until it was destroyed by Dionysus of Syracuse in 397 BC. An excellent opportunity to see the archaeological sites. There is a well posted footpath that...More

After visiting the salt harvesting place, we took a short boat ride to this island , where we had a picnic lunch. Before eating we took a flat, one mile hike around the island where we saw many Roman ruins and artifacts.

Sicily has so much history--Greek, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque--but this is also Phoenician! The museum has artifacts going back thousands of years, including a Greek sculpture said to have Carthaginian influence. The "youth" or charioteer is truly beautiful, with flowing robes and rippling muscles--it has...More

This is an amazing spot to see the wildflowers in the spring. It is a short boat ride of the coast and a great spot to hike and see the ruins. The small museum is full of artifacts and a lovely intact sculpture (minus the...More

We visited in February, and our group had the island almost to ourselves. The ruins are fascinating - Phoenician, Carthaginian, Greek relics. A necropolis is here with a fortress 2500 years old. It is certianly worth a visit! (Don't miss the windmills/Salt recovery on the...More

We took the boat to the island, looked at the museum and went for a walk around the island which allowed us to look at all the archeological sites. The path is well defined and you'll have an easy time to find your way. It...More

A number of excavations are available to view from the early civilisations. A sort boat ride gets you there, then its all flat walking. There is also an amazing museum where some of the finds are displayed. Disappointing that the cafe was closed, when its...More

I believe the possibility to see the unique Greek statue "Giovane di Mozia" ("Young of Mozie") inside the Whitaker museum is alone worth the trip to Mozia. Add the rest of the collection inside the museum, the wonderful natural setting, the importante of the Phoenician...More
