Levanzo Island: Genovese Cave Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
Depart from the Port of Trapani and take the ferry or hydrofoil which runs every half hour to Levanzo Island. When you arrive, your guide will be waiting to meet you. Hop into a Jeep or a boat (depending on sea conditions) and travel together along the north-west coast. Admire the incredible Karst scenery - steep limestone cliffs that rise up above the water. Reach the Genovese cave formation which looks over a small creek hidden by typical Mediterranean vegetation. Head inside the grotto where you will find the remains of a kiln that was historically used to make lime. Continue on into the deeper chambers where you will find 33 engraved pictures and about 100 painted figures. Gaze in awe at these incredible prehistoric works of art before making the return journey back the way you came. Please note that if you drive to cave in a car, there will be a 700 m steep path to climb.

Very well organised, with lunch included and enough time to visit the islands by ourselves. Opportunity to jump from the boat and swim in the sea before having lunch. Very good experience. Totally recommend it for people who don’t have enough time to visit the islands of Levanzo and Favignana by themselves.
Well organized sightseeing tour which included a stop of approx. 2 hours on the island of Favignana and an hour on the island of Levanzo. She was given the opportunity to take a bath at the Cal Rossa. Excellent lunch enjoyed on board. Highly recommended
Friendly team, good payment processing, check-in and service, delicious local lunch with water and wine, multiple opportunities to swim during the trip, ship and toilets are clean, explanations of various sights in Italian and English.
It was a fantastic day trip. Everything was as described. For lunch there was a good pasta Trapanese with water and wine. We loved the Cala Fedda on Levanzo, where we took a breathtaking swim in the free hour.
Very well organized with a day full of activities. The visit to Favignana is interesting, beautiful Levanzo and beautiful all the opportunities to jump into the water
