After visiting the salt harvesting place, we took a short boat ride to this island , where we had a picnic lunch. Before eating we took a flat, one mile hike around the island where we saw many Roman ruins and artifacts.

A number of excavations are available to view from the early civilisations. A sort boat ride gets you there, then its all flat walking. There is also an amazing museum where some of the finds are displayed. Disappointing that the cafe was closed, when its...More

I believe the possibility to see the unique Greek statue "Giovane di Mozia" ("Young of Mozie") inside the Whitaker museum is alone worth the trip to Mozia. Add the rest of the collection inside the museum, the wonderful natural setting, the importante of the Phoenician...More
