logoMozia

Mozia is a tiny island with a rich ancient history located in Western Sicily. The excavations that took place on the island in the late 19th century showed that Mozia was, in fact, one of the first Phoenician colonies in Europe. Today, some of the island’s highlights feature the iconic, picturesque windmills, the old causeway that was built by the Phoenicians which is surprisingly still standing, and numerous ancient ruins. Obviously, there are a lot of things to discover on Mozia and in some parts, excavations are still taking place.

If you want to reach the island, you can get there by ferry or bus from the coastal town of Marsala.
