Marsala living.
In Marsala it goes on the floor.
And it also goes by sea.
Because besides the land, which here has ancient traditions where the generosity of the vineyards found farsighted British entrepreneurs like Whitaker who "invented" the Marsala wine (Marsala was also "of Europe Wine City"), there is the sea.
Just turn your back to the city for trespassing look in the Mediterranean and discover a Marsala who also lives in the sea, with its marina and promenade where you can 'appreciate the beauty of the crystal clear waters.

Cellars and dishes, so the city conquers palates.
Among the wineries still breathe the tradition passed down from generation to generation.
You need to go between the barrel (from Martinez can do it by candlelight) to understand what it's like an aged Marsala.
And among the companies meet generations of wine makers, today called wine.
A tasty and discovery route not to be missed.
Not least the food and wine.
It is not difficult to eat well in the city.
One that stands out is the Sicilian cuisine, fresh fish coming from the local navy and sweets which are well accompanied with Marsala.
The table wine may not be missing.
For the vines there is a varied choice.
Just do not lose heart and enjoy them well matched to the food.

History and tradition in the wine town.
There is the story of peoples settled with the island of Mozia, the Stagnone lagoon is now known in Europe as one of the windiest places, ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
And it should not be surprising if, while you reach the island on board of the fishermen's boats, sailors cross each other while the salters are still gathering the white gold by hand, the sea salt in the shade of mills now in disuse.
It is a show that only here, with respect to all countries of the world, you can see where the old resists the modern and where water sports respect the long history of places and traditions.
But Marsala is a city that should be lived, especially within.
Dive into the old town is, as in a snorkeling stop, look, surprising and rich.
To start from Baglio Anselmi with Punic ship recovered in the sea and finds that illustrate how rich the Mediterranean, crossed by sailors, merchants and pirates.
Then the colorful mosaics of the Imperial Roman villas, the majestic Spanish fortifications, the museum of Flemish tapestries.
In the heart of the historic center also relives the epic Garibaldi with the museum dedicated to Giacomo Giustolisi.
His latest exhibition brings together ancient and multimedia: the relics of Garibaldi and the voices of actors reading acts and letters of Marsala with Garibaldi.
