Life in Marzamemi, one of Sicily‘s prettiest fishing villages, is centred around the horseshoe shaped harbour beside the 10C ‘tonnara’, built by the Arabs and now converted into a hotel. The tonnera was the reason for the towns conception and  tuna dishes, as well as a wonderful variety of fresh sea food,  still figure large on the menus of many of the little restaurants around the harbour close to our villas in Marzamemi.

There’s a further choice of restaurants, bars and shops around  Marzamemi’s  square, Piazza Regina Margherita and a little exploration amongst the towns narrow and colourful  streets will reveal the ruins  of the Church of San Francesco di Paola.   The town is also home to a film festival in late July, showing international contemporary and vintage films in open-air venues

Just 1.5km North of Marzamemi is the stunning beach of Agua Lido with golden sands , beach beds, great restaurant  and a selection of Marzamemi holiday villas-  all you need.
