Isola di Mozia (Mothia)/ San Pantaleo, Marsala

3.9
Once home to the most important Phoenician and Carthaginian settlements, Isola di Mozia (Mothia)/ San Pantaleo was rediscovered in 1888. Basilican monks occupied the island in the Middle Ages, but lived in total isolation until Joseph Whitaker arrived in the 19th century. Since then, the Whitaker Foundation has owned and managed the island, which is known for its wine production. Take a guided tour of the wineries' cellars, where you can taste their wines. Visit the museum to see the well-preserved ruins of the noble residencies, roads, and artifacts. You can hire an English-speaking guide for a tour of the island.

  • The island is definitely worth seeing for archeological treasures but also for the setting and the atmosphere in this place frozen in time. A hot tip is to see it together in Virginia, call it (3382357150-usually the cost is modest about 10/15 per person according to the participants). We did this and the experience was very positive for both the professionalism of Virginia that is very well prepared but above all for the great love he has for this land and that definitely (and I guarantee: definitely) will make you feel.

  • The island is very beautiful and interesting. What seemed expensive to me was the €9 entrance more €5 to arrive by boat. I still recommend it if you like ruins and museums.
