This spot between Tapani and Marsala has both an interesting salt production site (tours available but we decided against that) and the visit by boat to an island with a Pheonician settlement and small museum. The latter was a nice walk with the kids and...More

The boat trip is short and fun. The museum is interesting with an enormous quantity of material (though kind of crowded together like a child's rock collection). For anyone interested in archeology, this is an important stop.

A great historical place! Worth a visit if one is interested in history and archeology. Walking around the island to see The digs is a must!🤓

We enjoyed the boat out to Mozia as well as the small museum packed with locally excavated treasures. The island is small enough to stroll around on the well-marked paths past the Phoenician ruins. There's a small cafe for drinks, panini and snacks. A very...More
