The small Italian island of Levanzo is one of the Aegadian group of islands in the Mediterranean Sea, to the west of the island of Sicily. Of the three islands that make up the Aegadian islands Levanzo is the smallest (Favigana is the largest), measuring just under 6 sq. km with around 450 inhabitants, many of which live around the island's port. The pretty little port on the island has a cluster of pale square buildings huddled around the little harbour. The island doesn't have a road network but there are a couple of dirt tracks that only four wheel drive cars and donkeys are able to use. The main, and perhaps only, tourist sight on the island is the Grotto del Genovese which is a cave that contains prehistoric art. There is very little else to do in the island other than relax, swim and sunbathe, and of course enjoy the island's atmosphere.
The island is only about twenty minutes by hydrofoil from Trapani. There are several hydrofoil and slower ferry connections a day both with the Sicilian city and also with the larger island of Favignana.
The Italian island of Marettimo is the most remote of the three Egadi Islands which lie off Sicily's west coast. The island, which is simply a rocky ridge that protrudes out of the Mediterranean, lies within a marine nature reserve and is a popular destination for scuba divers, walkers and simply for those seeking a tranquil break. The island only has one town, also called Marettimo, and is a fishing town that has a number of quite humble pale coloured square houses.
The ferries using the island's pretty harbour moor up alongside fishing vessels and diving school boats and is a short distance from another small harbour that is mainly used only by fishermen. Passengers disembarking rom a ferry do so right into the narrow streets of Marettimo where they are greeted by a lovely cosmopolitan atmosphere. At first the island may seem similar to other Mediterranean islands but upon closer inspection, and after a bit of exploring, the island's Italian charm shines through as smart stairways and little catholic shrines are uncovered. Marettimo is around 40 minutes by hydrofoil from Favignana, and an hour from Trapani.
