Marsala
The Essential
The name alone speaks volumes! Marsala is first and foremost a wine, a wine whose story begins with the arrival of an English merchant in the town. Today, Marsala flows freely in the numerous enoteche (wineries) of this endearing and welcoming city, where numerous remains of strongholds and fortifications remind the visitor of the town's former military vocation. Marsala is also worth a visit for its British influence, which gives it a surprising character.

Off the beaten track in Sicily: the taste of its savours, the smell of its history

Most tour operators bring tourists to Cefalù, Taormina, Syracuse, or to the foot of Mount Etna. However far from the conventional routes lies the north-west of Sicily, a fascinating region with a rich culinary tradition. Mazara del Vallo, Erice and the historic city of Marsala, famous for its wine, are the main stopovers on this still little known gastronomic route.
