Favignana and Levanzo

Favignana and Levanzo

The Aegadian Islands, pearls surrounding precious Sicily!

*** FROM JUNE TO SEPTEMBER ***

Favignana and Levanzo, the closest Aegadian Islands to Sicily, are not only two wonderful pearls on the sea nowadays... they witnessed the final battle between Rome and Carthage during the first Punic War in 241 BCE.

For this boat tour by motorboat, which includes one of our Tour Leaders, we will pick you up from your hotel or b&b with one of our vehicles: for 1-2 people a city car (with upgrade option to a larger car), for 3-8 people a big sedan or a minivan according to the number of people.

It takes about 2 hours to arrive at the Trapani pier, where we get on-board for our cruise. The first leg of this itinerary is the Favignana Island, defined by the painter Salvatore Fiume "a butterfly on the sea" for its characteristic shape. Visit of the coastline, where we will be dazzled by the intensity of light and the colours of the view. A stop for an unforgettable swim at Cala Rossa and then visit of Cala Azzurra, Punta Fanfalo, Bue Marino and of the Cave di Tufo (Tuff Pits), a natural choreography of this island kissed by the sun.

To get to know and appreciate not only the coasts, also the town of Favignana with its characteristic architecture, we will stop there for three hours to satisfy you curiosity. Not to be missed the Tonnara (the old tuna-fishing factory) and the Florio Palace. Then bow to Levanzo, with the important Grotta del Genovese (Genovese Cave) along the coast, one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy with its rock carvings and paintings. Stop for a swim at Cala Minnola or visit of the village and then back to Trapani.
