Island
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.
