Having just come from Ragusa and its magnificent tempels, this was a complete letdown. Don't be fooled by all the great stories about this place; it is a desolate little island with a lot of old stones with a price tag of €14,00 (€5 for...More

ciao, vorrei visitare l'isola di Mozia ed ho necessità di un contatto telefonico con il barcaiolo o una Pro loco che organizza le gite. La questione è che siamo una coppia che viaggia con una cagnolina di piccola taglia e la mia domanda è se possiamo fare il giro in barca con lei. grazie

Ci sono battelli ogni mezz'ora per Mothia, dall'imbarcadero delle saline. Ho visto cagnolini sull'isola, anzi, ce n'è uno delizioso all'ingresso del museo.
