  >  Destinations  >  Italy  >  Marsala (Sicily)

Four or five days is definitely not enough time to see everything, but it is enough time to relax and take in some Sicilian culture.  We flew into Palermo, primarily because that is where RyanAir flew too.

Upon arrival in Palermo, we jumped in a rental car and made our way to Marsala.  Marsala is a small town but visiting the wineries was worth it (especially because I didn’t know a lot about Marsala wine).

Since we were staying at Baglio Oneto, we also visited their winery.  Baglio Oneto sits just outside of Marsala, and is a beautiful resort sitting amidst an eighteenth century vinyard.  There is a small, historical wine cellar and a very nice selection of red, white and Marsala wines.

In addition, we visited Cantine Florio , which runs a good tour and has impressive facilities.  There were a few others (Carlo Pellegrino and Donnafugata), but in the interest of time, we skipped them and instead, we spent the afternoon at a great little wine bar in town, where we tasted a selection of nice wines along with tapas.
