I spent a couple of days in the restored, old tuna factory in Favignana. Beautiful rooms, spectacular history, surroundings, sights and stories. Modern function in an ancient setting.

take the time to visit the Florio Tonnara. It is inextricably linked to history of thge island and the renovation is very well done. Take the guided tour, it worth it (and does not cost extra)

Guides speaks only italian, there is no information in English AT ALL. You get just map with text, that you can read on wikipedia. The exhibition seems interesting, but you dont understand nothing at all.

I think when you go there , go to reception as I did see that there was a possibility of an English tour . Unfortunately I am not able to tell you the times of the tour. Well worth a visit .
