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 mainland)

Granted we had a perfectly beautiful day,blue skies,no wind,not to hot in late September,but everything combined with the boat trip out to the picturesque island made for a fairytale experience.

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 was very hot when we were there and while there's a little restaurant on the island, I recommend to bring sufficient water for the walk.

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 advertised hours showed it should have been open.

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 archeological site, the view on the salt pans when going back to main Sicily with the boat: absolutely among the best things to do while in Marsala. If you take the boat back to spend sunset-hour by Riserva dello Stagnone, even better.
The boat ride is 5 euros (two-ways), and only takes 5 minutes; save the ticket to come back. To enter the island you have to additionally pay 9 euros (well worth the value for me).
