Here you can get all information concerning beaches, shop and restaurants on the... More

Reccomend to take bicycles, rent is about 5eur a day, near port. Going through city is nothing special, but getting on that fort on the hill is awesome! After, some Grappa is good reccomendation.

We loved our visit to Favignana. It has great food and is great for doing cycling with his owing to its flat nature. The beaches are gorgeous. Definitely worth the detour.

They stopped the boat and we were able to go for a... More

Get on board of the adorable Egadilandia, a tourist train that runs around the many coastal roads and streets of the island. Do not miss the Ex Stabilimento Florio (a tuna cannery now a museum), the hard walk up the hill will lead to the... More
