Marsala and the Sicania lands

Happiness in three moves: windmills, excellent wine and unspoiled nature.

“Giusto è che questa terra, di tante bellezze superba, 
alle genti si addìti e molto si ammiri, opulenta d’invidiati beni e ricca di nobili spiriti”.

Lucrezio

A drop of light in the Mediterranean

Marsala is located on one of the trade routes in the Mediterranean, a position that over the decades has allowed different peoples such as the Arabs, the Punic, the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Byzantines to pass and leave something of their culture. A culture that still echoes in art, food and the whole territory. You will be enchanted by its sea landscapes, its small islands, the salt pans and the hills that make it a true hymn to the variety of nature.

Marsala is a fascinating and unmissable city that enjoys a territory with uncontaminated natural areas, places rich in history and art, and evocative landscapes with a timeless and dreamy atmosphere.
Located at the western end of Sicily, Marsala has a historic center rich in monuments and art, enclosed within sixteenth-century walls. At one time, in fact, it was possible to access the city from several gates, of which Porta Garibaldi and Porta Nuova are still visible today. In the heart of Marsala, you will stroll between liberty and baroque buildings.
A suggestive and unmissable destination? The church of San Giovanni from which you can get to the Sibilla cave where, it is said, that the lilibetan sibyl used to formulate its prophecies and
according to legend, even Ulysses would have quenched his thirst at the source of this cave.

Sicilian lands and its vineyards. A history spanning over 300 years.

Our tour in Marsala and the Sicilian lands will allow you to spend three intense days in the vineyards of Western Sicily to taste the wines of the Sicilian cellars directly from the producer. You can walk the salt roads to stroll among windmills and heaps of white salt, places that offer an intense sense of serenity and calm. An ideal tour for those who love being in contact with nature.
