After a full day at sea, the Tonnara Florio Favignana was a great way to get back on land and see how the island used to live around the Tuna. It must be sayed that the tuna in Favignana is incredible but it was very moving to see how an all industry was developed around it. The museum is placed... 更多
They do guided tours, with duration of 1h. We had a Italian guide perhaps they do also in English but not sure. It's impressive to see how they worked. Also sad to see how humans perfected this industry of dead and the tuna disappear.
Take a trip through time and see the remains of the Roman sea battles which have been preserved in the museum before taking a tour of the factories which made the island its fortune. Wonderful history tour and a lesson that even a small island can have a big impact on the world.
It's very interesting to visit this place listening and learning about illuminated Italian industrials of two centuries ago and local tradition and culture. You have also the possibility to discover a piece of Roman history hearing about the naval battle around the islands that put an end to the first war between Rome and Carthago. It's a pleasure to see... 更多
Very interesting old tonnara turned into a museum, with a particular emphasis on the history (and downfall) of the Florio family. Exhibits include some amazing old fishing boats. Open only in the morning. One of the last surviving workers explained what life was like when the tonnara was in full swing. Unfortunately he and the guide spoke only in Italian;... 更多
We visited tonnara at the last evening during our three days stay in Favignana and it really was worth it. Tonnara building is nicely illuminated at evening, exhibition is informative and was interesting even for our 5 years old grand daughter. Tuna story is presented by exposition of original tonnara equipment, historic photos, as well as up-to-date installations and video.... 更多

My girlfriend and I joined an evening tour of the Tonnara and we were both fascinated and enchanted. We joined an Italian group and even tho I don't speak much Italian I was riveted. My girlfriend did a little translating for me as our tour guide (the magnetic, knowledgeable and emotionally engaged Francesca B.) made the long disused Tonnara come... 更多
the tonaria is open till 23h00 in summer and it is very beatiful. They display films on tuna fishermen and it's great.
We were welcomed by a young guide who lives in Favignana but had good english speaking skills. She was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions we posed. The place is amazing with beautiful architecture. The building is well maintained with photos and demos representing the way tuna used to be caught and processed. Definitely worth a visit if you're... 更多
