Salt pan of Marsala, lagoon by boat and tasting of local products

Spend a day with an intense flavor: visiting the island of Mothia by boat, the salt pan, tasting some Sicilian excellences and walking through the city of wind and wine, Marsala.

The sea always hides wonders, like the open-air museum island of Mothia.
We circumnavigate this and the other islands of the Stagnone archipelago, the widest in Sicily, on board of the typical boat with a flat keel.

It will seem to step in a happy place with the bucolic windmills, but Mothia will soon reveal its cruel past of human sacrifices.
Until recently, the island could be reached on foot through a Phoenician underwater road but the rising level of water has now submerged it.

Mothia was an important military, naval, and Punic studies center; the boy of Mothia, the charming Phoenician statue, was found here.

Salt and history have always been linked to the life of this coastal area and numerous products of salt are the best proof.

In addition to the pure salt crystal, you can taste the chocolate flavored with salt flower, wine jellies, pistachio and almond creams, cheeses and local wines, all excellences of this land.

Following a line, we arrive in Marsala, the city of wine and sea.
From the sea arrived the dominations that made of Marsala the perfect mix of identities, forging its unique character.

Sir Woodham landed here to find and spread around the world the taste of the fortified wine of the peasants, the Marsala.
Even the Italian national hero Garibaldi arrived here, adding a step to the accomplishment of the Unification of Italy.

Also for you, Marsala will represent one of the landmarks of your Sicilian journey.
