Marsala Wine and Archaeology


What: a fascinating itinerary based around Marsala and the island of Mothya. The link is the Whitaker family, who were central to both the unearthing of one of the world's most important Phoenician archaeological sites - on the tiny island of Mozia - and the development of Marsala's world-famous wine industry. The tour includes a guided visit of Mozia, the museum and the Whitaker family's house there and a visit to the historic Florio wine cellars, complete with wine-tasting.

Where: Mozia and Marsala (the western coast of Sicily)

Who: a great day out for anyone staying in western Sicily!

How long: full-day including lunch
