Underwater museums: archaeology and diving

Sport & Well-being


The seabeds in the west of Sicily are exceptional, offering amazing diving experiences. However, for enthusiasts, the Itinerari Archeologici Subacquei (Underwater Archaeology Routes) – which enable you to view wrecks and finds on the seabed up close – are an absolute must. There are several routes, with different characteristics, depths and degrees of difficulty, including Cala Gadir in Pantelleria, the submerged port of Capo Boeo in Marsala and the wrecks of San Vito Lo Capo. At Cala Minnola in Levanzo, a late-republican wreck loaded with wine amphorae and an underwater route through its depths will take you on a voyage of discovery through the wonders of history.
