Mini-cruiser Favignana and Levanzo

1 review
Spend the day island hopping from Sicily. Explore the Aegadian archipelago with time to explore the different islands on your own, and lots of stops to swim. Visit the beaches and waterfalls at Favignana, then, enjoy lunch on board the ship accompanied by wine. Next stop at Levanzo, known for its striking blue water. Ideal for visitors looking to escape the city, get to know the islands, and spend time on the water.

You need to book a tour, and try to do it the day before, because this is a very popular place to visit. There are visits in Italian and English, and they are held by former factory workers, very passionate about their jobs/lives. The factory has been renovated for the purpose of the visits, and contains very nice exhibits. A must!!!

If you spend some days in Favignana, you can't miss this tour. It takes just 1 hour and I suggest you to book in advance. I took a late evening tour, before sunset, and it was the highlight of my stay in Favignana. Guides are very informative and you can learn a lot about Florio family, tuna factory and in general about Sicily. The only downside: too many people in each group (50/60), during this times I'd appreciate less crowd.

The tuna museum is a must see when being on the island. We where lucky enough to get a quick ‚private tour‘ by the lovely English speaking lady from Palermo, who used to live in Australia. We cannot thank her enough. Inside the Museum tours are mandatory and they are usually in Italian. That way you really learn a lot about the traditional way of tuna fishing which - due to industrial overfishing - does not exist anymore.

We’d been looking the the Stabilimento for a couple of evenings before we visited. Very informative about the history of the way that Tuna has traditionally been caught and processed.

Very interesting and well managed museum where you will surely learn interesting stuff. The guides are great: it seems they like their job and they do it well. Worth to spare a couple of hours for this when you start to be sun burned or just in the evening before dinner.
