Marsala Holidays

Picturesque holidays in Sicily

Holidays to Marsala in Sicily invite you to enjoy a rich cultural heritage, culinary delights, and a vibrant atmosphere. A picturesque and historic town, Marsala can be found on the west coast of Sicily in the province of Trapani looking out over the Mediterranean Sea. 

Famous for its historical significance, Marsala is known for its production of Marsala wine which was first produced in the late 18th century and is made from local grape varieties. The town’s name is derived from the Arabic word “Marsa Allah” which translates to the “Port of God”.  

Visitors can enjoy the cultural heritage of historic sites like the Marsala Cathedral with its beautiful Baroque façade and the Tapestry Museum, Museo degli Arazzi. 

The area around Marsala is famous for its salt pans which have been fully operational for centuries. Creating a unique landscape, the salt pans produce high quality sea salt and visitors can enjoy a tour to learn about the salt extraction process.
