Segesta, Erice & Marsala salt flats

Travel in Italy as an Italian

Marsala salt flats

This region has been producing bright white salt with intense flavor since Phoenician times, and a Museum of Salt lays out the process in a restored windmill, with everything from diagrams of the Archimedes screws used to pump water between flats to the wide, straight shovels used for skimming the salt into towering white mounds.

Segesta

The ancient Greek temple of Segesta can make a valid claim to be the best preserved in the world, and its amphitheatre boasts a hilltop position on Mount Barbaro second to none.

Erice

Erice is an unforgettable medieval hilltown with ancient origins in Sicily. The sober historic town is surrounded by defensive town walls, crowned by a castle, and dominates the surrounding area.

Marsala salt flats

The Saline della Laguna are located in western Sicily, on the coast connecting Trapani to Marsala. A unique area in front of the island of Mothia, on the famous "salt route", which offers visitors many opportunities.
