- Full day excursion to Favignana, Egadi Islands - € 7.950,00
In the Egadi Islands nature puts on a show of unequaled beauty, with immaculate beaches that harmonize with the tide.
Made up of three larger islands – Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo – and a series of minuscule islands and giant rocks, this archipelago is part of the Egadi Marine Reserve.
Favignana is a must: enjoy a swim at Cala Azzurra and you’ll find that Azzurra is a just description of a cove lapped by perfectly-azure waters.
You will find the Grotta Perciata just as splendid – perciata, in local dialect, refers to the hole in the upper part of the grotto. The light that shines through illuminates the water inside so that it almost seems to glow.
