OverviewHide
Discover the fascinating history of Marsala with a special look at the town’s proud heritage of winemaking. Travel along the western coast of Sicily, passing the iconic saltpans, which have long been a feature of this stunning landscape. Upon arrival in Marsala, embark on a narrated tour that reveals the towns Arabic past and Phoenician roots. Visit the Archeological Museum, where the ancient world unfolds before your eyes. Witness the wreck of a Punic warship, called a “liburna”, dating back to the 3rd century B.C., and marvel at the artifacts and tools uncovered at the site. Afterwards, stroll over to the Cantine Florio , a proud Marsala winery in operation since 1883.
