Stopped on the way from Marsala to Erice. We didn’t go into the museum, but it’s worth a stop just to take photos. It remind me of ones I used to see in Spain.

We didn’t do a tour but the views at sunset after a trip to Mozia were amazing. Just do it! Have an Aperol spritz at Mamma Caura to finish the day .

So pleased we made the visit to learn about an every day condiment that one uses without giving the slightest thought as to how it is made and ends up on the shop shelf. English speaking tour guide, takes one through the salt harvesting process...More

This working salt farm and small museum and gift shop is well worth a visit. The terrain is beautiful, the museum is very interesting, and the products are tasty. All of the salt made here is made by hand.

Well worth a visit. The museum is housed in an old windmill and the process of production is explained well with videos and graphic displays. You can taste different flavoured salts after the tour, though they are quite expensive to buy.

I don't know how good public transport is in this particular area. If you want to see the sunset I'd recommend renting a car, the best option to be completely flexible.

The water dries up in late summer. Anytime from now through September would be your best bet. Once the rains come in the fall, the pans are diluted and so are the colors.
