We had not booked our accommodation for the next few nights as we were not sure where the day would finish but we knew Marsala was our first stop.
Heading to the centre of the town , we found a parking spot just outside the gates to the old centre and right next to a very busy pasticerria, Antica Pasticerria de Gaetano.
Perfect for a quick lunch!
A quick walk through the old part of town followed
Marsala is one of the largest wine producing areas in Sicily and a visit is not complete without a tour of the Florio cellars. Tours in English are at 11am and 4.30pm.
We decided not to stay at one of the many agriturismos on the route between Marsala and Trapani, and instead headed for Trapani along the Via del Sale, The Salt Route
I had seen many photos of the unusual windmills against the blue sky with mounds of white salt in the salt pans. The day was overcast (even the locals had been talking about the unusual weather) so the photos are more shades of grey.
Next stop, Trapani
