I spent a couple of days in the restored, old tuna factory in Favignana. Beautiful rooms, spectacular history, surroundings, sights and stories. Modern function in an ancient setting.

take the time to visit the Florio Tonnara. It is inextricably linked to history of thge island and the renovation is very well done. Take the guided tour, it worth it (and does not cost extra)

For me and my girlfriend too boring excursion. Only Italian guide, so we don't know what she said all the time. And without guide is this place uninteresting.

Guides speaks only italian, there is no information in English AT ALL. You get just map with text, that you can read on wikipedia. The exhibition seems interesting, but you dont understand nothing at all.
