Along Sicily’s west coast from Trapani in the north through Marsala in the south, harvesting salt has been a leading industry since Phonetician times (that is, from around the 8th century BC). Windmills, like the one pictured, although no longer used to grind the harvested salt, still dot the picturesque coastline. During the afternoon of Day 2 of our May 2016 tour, we’ll visit the salt flats of Marsala and learn about the age-old process of collecting salt from the sea.
