Lampedusa Guide

The Italian island of Lampedusa lies in the Mediterranean Sea and is the largest of the Pelagie Islands. The island is also the southernmost part of Italy and is roughly 115 km from the Tunisian coast, 175 km from Sicily and 175 km from Malta. Apart from tourism, the island's main industry is agriculture and fishing. Over the centuries the island has been inhabited by many different nationalities including the Romans, the Arabs and the Greeks. All of these influences are reflected in the island's architecture and culture which still retain the influences of these different residents over the centuries.

For tourists, the island is relatively quiet and is the perfect destination for a more relaxing vacation. Many visitors are drawn to the island to take in its natural beauty, to visit its lovely beaches and to relax in the sun and swim in the crystal clear, warm, waters.

A ferry service links the island with Porto Empedocle, near Agrigento, Sicily.

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.
