  • the visit to the salt pans and the Museum is really exciting. the Sun reflecting off the mountains of salt is something unique in the world, let alone the sunset

  • Despite the bad weather, the visit to the salt pans was very fulfilling, both aesthetically and culturally

  • It was an interesting morning, we visited the salt marshes around Trapani and are really interesting, I didn't know that behind a grain of salt there was so much work like this! interesting and great product! We went with a guide who then in fact buy untreated salt! and we wanted that!

  • Our last evening in Sicily and what a perfect way to end it. Did not know what to expect but it turned out to be a very interesting and informative tour at a nice old windmill by a charming Sicilian young lady whose grandfather had worked there in his day. Had the opportunity to purchase different kinds of salt produced by them at in my opinion,a very fair price. We ended the evening at the restaurant next door as we watched the sun go down. I highly recommend visiting the museum!
  • Lovely experience. We hired bikes in Trapani. Had a great time on the ride spotting the flamingos in the salt beds by the roadside and then a lovely lunch before the great museum tour. Try the mixed seafood anitpasto. Wonderful.
  • Very nice museum with guided tour. The granddaughter is a lovely girl who told us passionately everything about the history of salt winning in perfect English! Recommend a visit!
  • This place turned out to be a highlight of my trip. Fascinating family business and able to buy the tastiest salt straight from ocean. Super cheap too. Great learning experience!
  • Nice place only for 15minutes unless you really like such places
