Staying in Marsala for a week

We are staying in Marsala for a week in the next week. I was wondering if anyone could recommend places to visit. We will have a car. It will be myself, my husband, our 14 year old son, and my mother in law. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Sicily mtmurch!

Erice, Segesta, and Selinunte are Western Sicily’s top attractions, but you might also visit Trapani, the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo), Mozia, La via del Sale and the salt pans, Mazara del Vallo, Cave di Cusa, Caltabellotta, Sciacca, Eraclea Minoa, Scala dei Turchi, Agrigento, the Valley of the Temples,Lo Zingaro, the Alcamo wine region, Palermo, and Monreale. Park at the airport and take the bus to Palermo.

And also visit a winery for lunch and tasting, perhaps Planeta.

I really enjoyed the island of Mozia and the Whitaker Museum there. You get a good view of the salt pans on the way across as well.

Yes, Mozia and the saltpans are really quite special, and very significant in the shaping of Western Sicily!

Thank you all for your suggestions! Anything specific you can think of that would be good for our son (14)?

Perhaps send a private message since there hasn't been any activity!
