The scale of the ruins and excavations is surprising for a place that is 1/4 square miles. Dates to 17 C BC. Indigenous, Greek, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and others. Excavated by Whittacker in the earl 1900's and continued by his daughter. A Greek original statue found...More

From the starting pier you have a creeping perception of some sorcery. You board the boat and slowly are teletransported ti another time. Mozia is sort of a parallel world. An island-city of phenicean ages, with conserved premises, ruins, the port and a museum to...More

Mozia is a small island, a 3-minute ferry ride from Sicily/Marsala, and worth going a bit out of your way to see. The island is full of small (and larger) archaeological sites, and a recent effort by the University of Rome La Sapienza has added...More

We didn't save enough time to look at this whole island and all the ruins, or we were just too tired to stay until the next boat, but other than seeing the Giovinetto which was spectacular, and the main building full of ruins, we didn't...More

Such a treat to visit this special place. A wonderful museum is the highlight. The collection and history is fascinating. Next time..I would like to spend the entire day and explore

This is clearly a very important archaelogical site, but, though the short boat trip to the 'island' was fun, the ruins were less than inspiring. (This is based on having explored several other sites in Sicily on this visit and a previous one.) The artefacts...More

Unfortunately we allowed too little time on the island to do it justice. We managed to walk around only about a quarter of the coastline and had to skip the last room in the museum. The museum has a lovely marble statue and many artifacts....More

Sicily is loaded with old stones and great excavations but if you think Phoenician this may be your only chance. A lovely ride from Marsala past the salt pans. Take a short boat ride over what seems to be knee water.

Enjoyed a bite at a cafe beside the salt flats before taking a 10 minute ferry to the small island of Mozia. The centerpiece of the archeological museum on the island is a prized statue, the Youth of Mozia (aka The Mozia Charioteer), which is...More
