    A few kilometers north of Marsala is the Stagnone Lagoon, a natural reserve of low sea water, bordered by the four islands of Mozia, Isola Grande, Schola and Santa Maria.
    Here are located are the famous Saline - salt evaporation ponds.
    The windmills, the water tanks delimited by tuff blocks, the white mountains of salt compose a picturesque scenario. Make your visit at sunset, when the colors create reflections of extraordinary beauty.

    There are several Salt Mines in this part of the cost, but on the way from Marsala to Trapani you can find some very interesting ones.
    Just have a look tho the museum explaining how workers were used to extract Salt.

Marsala Warnings and Dangers

    I went to a number of restaurants at lunchtime in Marsala to be advised that they could not offer a Menu Turistica. I became suspicious when I noticed that locals were being offered a different menu. I calculated that to purchase a la Carte at lunchtime in Marsala would have cost 4 times what I had spent the previous evening in Palermo.

Marsala Favorites

    Favorite thing: Sicilian pastry is well known as one of the marvels of this land. The king of pastry is Cannolo Sicilano, a hose shaped tartlet filled with sweet ricotta cheese and chocolate drops.
    Have one as shown on this picture together with a cup of espresso, which in Sicily has a special taste, sitting at any of Marsala outdoor cafes.
    That will make a great experience !
