  • Fun and informative explanation of the history of the making of the salt that cheaply There are given in the Museum. With a Euro more you can stroll around the tanks and get away from the noise of civilization, leaving only the wind and the lapping of water. Don't miss a nice lunch at the Trattoria del sale located in mill, if it's sunny, you can sit outdoors in the winter and enjoy a Sicilian cuisine at the right price

  • Quaint and interesting museum that details the salt collecting process. Restaurant on site with fresh sea food. You can purchase salt there as well and are allowed to walk amongst the pools and observe the process first hand.
  • A little treat of a museum. Not very big at all but €2.50 buys you entrance and a little guided tour (in italian- enquire about English). Tales of Phoenician occupation and the science behind the saline and what makes good salt makes this a good stop.
  • Lovely wee museum with great views. Saw some flamingos too.
  • great little tour and explanation of the salt business through history.
  • The museum has also a very good restaurant. At Evening the area is a paradise for photographers.
