Nice museum. Expensive but wurth iT! Fenician and Greek settlements. Try to avoid the musquitos at the only terrace of the bar...!
Mozia had once been a thriving civilization until it was decimated 2500 years ago and has not been habited since. The boat ride is quick and pleasant and both the museum and the grounds are chock full of fascinating antiquities. The walk trough the vineyards to the Tophet was longish but easy for walkers and worth the trek. There's a... More
Reached after a short boat ride, this seemingly unassuming island is home to a tiny museum in which one can view (when he is not abroad on vacation in some loan exhibition) the spectacular Charioteer, an incredible array of Carthaginian/Punic stelae, and a knock-your-socks off monumental statue group of two felines felling a bull. The island itself is currently under... More

This island was one of the most important Phoenician-Punic settlements in the Mediterranean area, if you like archaeology you MUST visit it! You can also rent kayaks to go there (choose a day with no wind). The sunset there is something incredibly beautiful!
The relics on this island are plainly unique and superb, and the boat trip lovely. But given its age and importance it sorely needs the attention of a proper museum professional and investment in signage and explanatory material. It's kind is charmingly old world but it can be done so much better. (See the Phoenician boat museum in marsala for... More
We loved this boat trip out to Isola di Mozia. However, I would stress it's not a particularly cheap excursion, particularly for a family as you pay separately for the boat trip and then the island. But it is worth it ... it is such an unusual place, steeped in history. Unfortunately when we visited the "giovane" statue was in... More
don't miss this excursion together with the Saline and wind mills is one of the best things to do in Marsala!
