Reached after a short boat ride, this seemingly unassuming island is home to a tiny museum in which one can view (when he is not abroad on vacation in some loan exhibition) the spectacular Charioteer, an incredible array of Carthaginian/Punic stelae, and a knock-your-socks off monumental statue group of two felines felling a bull. The island itself is currently under excavation by the University of Rome and the mind boggles at how extensive the remains of the Carthaginian/Punic settlement really are. A torturous walk along the fields of grapes leads to the Tophet, where the inhabitants may (or may not, depending on whom you read) have interred the infants whom they allegedly sacrificed.
