This is an interesting area but you definitely need a guide or you will get lost. The streets are narrow, winding, can suddenly dead end - like being in a maze. Beside our guide, we had a local young man join our group. With his...More

The Casbah of Mazara del Vallo show the multi culture nature of this town. Tunisian immigrants moved here and still live here. Almost abandoned, it is now and thriving community. You need a guide or you will get lost.

We were on a tour of Mazara and had been walking the streets to view the amazing ceramic tiles placed throughout the kasbah. We entered the Teatro Garibaldi and the local historian gave a lovely talk and even sang for us. Worthwhile stop.

We were expecting a Kasbah similar to those we visited in North Africa. The areas has been restored and the streets are winding and narrow but basically there's not a lot to see. However, when we were there, there was a great deal of art...More

Recently restored unlike many dilapidated places in Sicily. Must be recent because the graffiti scum havent made their malevolent presence felt yet. A matter of time though.

We have not had a lot of disappointments on our fab trip to Italy or indeed in Mazara. But this was a duisppointment. This is not a Kasbah and the North African influence is muted to say the least. If you want a slice of...More

I was there for a romantic dinner and everything was as I expected, perfectly. Wonderful "caponata" in the starter plate, with some fresh fish. Then, cous-cous of fish. I suggest to everybody.

A lovely little place to wander the lanes and see all the original tiles and the ancient buildings. Very clean and safe to wander about and some very nice shops. This was included as part of the Travelsphere Secret Sicily tour which was very good.
