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

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!🤓
