Categories: Specialty Museums, Landmarks, Museums, Tourist Spots
Visit one of the birthplaces of the tuna canning industry at Ex Stabilimento Florio delle Tonnare di Favignana e Formica, on the island of Favignana just off the coast of Sicily. The 3.2 hectare (7.9 acre) site includes the former factory, which was remodeled in 1878. The Florio family, former owners of the plant, pioneered the now-widespread technique of canning tuna in oil to increase its shelf life. Explore the museum to see artifacts from the surrounding area, from Roman vessels to biographies of former cannery workers. Learn about the history of the tuna industry and the canning methods developed by the plant since its inception. Free guided tours are included in the admission price.

Marco SaglioccoVery interesting, must see if you visit Favignana and you have at least 3 hours to spare. The difference is he got help, a truly competent, friendly and passionate Lady. Pity that in the entire hotel there were only two functioning bathrooms, bathrooms for ladies. To fix now!show original
