Linosa Guide

The Italian island of Linosa is one of the Pelagie Islands that lie in the Mediterranean Sea in the Sicily Channel. The small island measures around 5.5 sq. km and is formed by a series of craters, the most important being Monte Vulcano which is 195 meters above sea level. The island is located around 120 km to the west of Gozo on Malta, 120 km to the south east of Pantelleria, 163 km to the south of Sicily and 165 km to the east of the Cape Mahida in Tunisia. The closest land to Linosa is the island of Lampedusa which is 43 km to the south.

The island's harbour and town, in the south of the island, is characterised by both African and Italian architecture, with small flat roofed houses that are painted in bright and pastel colours. The island is popular with scuba divers and has a number of different dive sites where the sea bed falls quickly to great depths of around 300 meters, only a short distance from the coast.

The only way to get to Linosa is by boat. Ferry services depart from either Porto Empedocle in southern Sicily or from Lampedusa.


Porto Empedocle Guide

The Italian town and port of Porto Empedocle lies on the Strait of Sicily, on the island of Sicily. A popular attraction in the town is the 15th century tower that was built by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, to protect the town's stock of harvested grain. The tower was later converted to a prison and is now a popular cultural centre. The historic town centre is characterised by narrow winding streets and contains a number of attractions including the cathedral. Outside of the city, the Valley of the Temples and its adjoining museum, are a popular attraction. In terms of commerce and industry, modern day Porto Empedocle is known for its fishing, ironworking, pharmaceuticals and rock salt refining.

Agrigento, the town served by the port, is also a major tourist centre due to its rich archaeological legacy and is also an agricultural centre for the surrounding region. Sulphur and potash have been mined locally since Minoan times up until the 1970s, and were exported around the world from the nearby harbour of Porto Empedocle.

Ferry services from the town's port depart to Lampedusa and Linosa.
