2002 Map

Hiking on Favignana Island, learning about its history and visiting the bronze monument of Ignazio Florio (who had bought the Egadi Islands for two million lire in 1874 CE) and climbing 314-m high Monte Santa Caterina, the highest point on Favignana.

Taking the Siremar ferry from Favignana Island to Marettimo Island for € 4.- per person (one way), hiking on some very well marked hiking paths along the mountain ridge, enjoying great views onto the Mediterranean and being forced to doing a one-hour detour by a bloodthirsty, road-blocking Egadian bull thus just making the last ferry of the day in a wild downhill gallop.

Matt: Taking the hydrofoil from Favignana Island to Levanzo Island and crawling into the cave Grotta del Genovese to study some Palaeolithic wall paintings and Neolithic incised drawings.
