On this tour, take in the amazing picturesque scenery of Lo Stagnone nature reserve (sandwiched between Trapani and Marsala), stroll through the fascinating archaeological site on the islet of Mozia, and taste excellent natural wines and food.
A tiny island off the West coast of Sicily, Mozia has some of the most remarkable Phoenician remains of the Mediterranean basin.
They were discovered by Giuseppe Whitaker who acquired the island in 1902, believing it could be home to one of the largest and richest Phoenician cities of the 8th century B.C.E. Mozia is also a small natural paradise. It is located in the nature reserve of La Stagnone, between Trapani and Marsala.
Commencing with a delightful boat trip through the saline (salt basins) to reach Mozia, you will stroll the islet in the company of your expert guide, admiring the settlement’s fortification walls and turrets, necropolis and sanctuaries dating back to the 7th centuries B.C. You will also admire the superb pebbled mosaics of the “House of Capitals” (6-3rd century B.C.) excavated by Giuseppe Whitaker, and named in such a way due to the variety of capitals dug out from the area.
After your guided walk through this unique archaeological site, take a short drive to a winery on the hills overlooking Mozia and the salt-pans that characterize the coastline between Marsala and Trapani.
You will stroll through the vineyards and taste some of the best natural wines produced in Sicily. You will be introduced to this family-owned estate’s philosophy – which is to make wine solely with grapes (literally) – and learn about the importance of terroir, vine pruning, wine ageing and much more.
Through the visit, you will live the passion of the estate’s founder for a very different wine making process that is rooted in local tradition. Speaking about tradition, you will find, while you are enjoying local specialties in front of a splendid panorama, that the family is as passionate about good food as they are about wines!
Duration of the tour ca. 6h
Please note that your expert guide will be with you solely in Mozia. After the tour, he or she will leave you at the winery, where you will be left in good hands.
