Marsala is the biggest town in the Trapani region in western Sicily. Ferries from Marsala sail to Favignana in the Aegadian Islands with Ustica Lines. You can book Ustica Lines ferries with AFerry.
Marsala is famed for Marsala wine, a popular export to elsewhere in Europe and the USA. Similar to Sherry and Port, Marsala wine is often used as a cooking ingredient, particularly for the chicken marsala dish - not to be confused with tikka masala!
One of the most striking attractions in Marsala is Stagnone Lagoon - a natural reserve and collection of salt pools. The pools are always hot during summer due to the low depth levels which can be as low as 2 metres.
