On this 2-in-1 trip, you’ll get to enjoy a boat tour of one of the most scenic pockets of Sicily, before sampling the country’s famous wine. The first half of your itinerary involves a boat trip around the Stagnone Lagoon. The biggest and most important in Sicily, it’s a large expanse of crystal-clear water, that’s freckled with the islands of Isola Lunga, Mothia, Isola di Schola and Isola di Santa Maria. As you glide through the water, your guide will fill you in on the history of the isles, including Mothia, one of the most prosperous Phoenician colonies in days gone by. You’ll also get to see the vast salt pans and ancient windmills that dot the lagoon’s edges. Eventually, you’ll anchor at the port, before boarding a coach and driving through the countryside to the town of Marsala. Here, you’ll stop by a rustic winery to learn about the making of the town’s famous wine, and to taste some of the different varieties for yourself. Before you leave, you’ll have a chance to pick up a couple of bottles in the winery shop, too.
If it's really windy and the boat trip can't be performed safely, don’t worry, we'll visit of Island of Mothia instead.
