B&B Nonno Gino – Marsala

#Nonno #Gino

This is what we will offer you to make your stay in Marsala unforgettable ..

Looking out from the romantic balcony you will be able to admire the arch of Garibaldi that marks the entrance to the old city.

From here entered Garibaldi and the Thousand after the landing on 11 May 1860. At that time it was called “Porta di mare” and together with Porta Nuova, Porta Mazara and Porticella it was part of the quadrilateral that delimited the city center. Crossing Porta Garibaldi means entering the heart of Marsala. Because from this entrance which has played a role of great importance in the history of Italy, you will be immediately catapulted into the colors and smells typical of the Marsala tradition.

Shortly after the door, in fact, on the right there is the rear entrance of the fish market, where the most appreciated fish varieties of the Mediterranean coexist with other inevitable representatives of the local gastronomy, which between a form of pecorino, a sandwich with panelle and a piece of pizza rianata, offer their very personal welcome. In the evening the charm of the Antico Mercato will amaze you, you will see everything you saw in the morning transformed into dozens of bars where you can sip excellent drinks accompanied by good live music. Live music, you will also hear it playing in many other clubs in the narrow streets of the center, especially during the weekend.

You have chosen B&B Nonno Gino, you are in a privileged point of the city, remember that!
Just outside, in front of the entrance gate, you will find the Tapestry Museum. Immediately around the corner, the Mother Church, the cathedral of Marsala, the Spanish quarter today the seat of the municipality, the Garibaldi Museum housed in the monumental complex of San Pietro, the archaeological park, the Sibyl’s cave and the mosaics of the Roman insula, the ship Punic inside the Baglio Anselmi museum.

In Marsala we also offer you sports! Especially those related to the wind, such as kite and windsurfing or sailing.

History! Besides you, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Spaniards and then Garibaldi with his Thousand have passed here!
Another of our strong points is definitely the sea! Clear, transparent and clean, we are “Blue Flag”! There are 2 options, if you love fine and clear sand, you will find the beaches that are right for you by traveling only 4 km to the south. There you can choose whether to go to one of the many equipped beaches and rent an umbrella and sun lounger, or find yourself an isolated piece of beach and stretch out on your towel to stay in total relaxation. From time to time you can find small kiosks where you can quench your thirst, and then bars and restaurants if you want to have a full lunch. If you choose the second solution instead, going in the opposite direction, towards the north, following the signs for the Stagnone Islands Nature Reserve, where Mozia, Isola Grande, Schola, Santa Maria rise, the suggestive salt pans with the Ettore Infersa Salt Museum. You will be able to delight in the practice of one of those sports we were talking about before, you will find schools to take kite and windsurf courses, made by certified and excellent instructors or simply where you can rent canoes, windsurfing or sup. Have an aperitif on a boat inside the lagoon while admiring our magical salt marshes, perhaps during sunset. If you have small children, the shallow water and the very mild water temperature make it an ideal place for a swim in complete tranquility. In some periods of the year you can even meet flamingos! This area boasts over 100 bird species.

Wine! In addition to the noble Marsala, walking through the center you will find excellent wine bars where you can also taste white and red wines. There are people who produce them with extreme passion and if this fascinates you why not visit a winery? Here in Marsala you can also take a guided tour. These are just a few, but all of them would be worthy of note: Florio, Donnafugata, Pellegrino, Marco de Bartoli, Martinez, Intorcia, Fina.

As in the rest of Sicily, good food is our specialty! Just some of our main dishes: cous cous, matarocco, spaghetti with sea urchins, cuttlefish ink, busiate with Trapani pesto, fettuccine allo scoglio, sardines a beccafico, fillet of tuna, the inevitable grilled fresh fish just caught where you can really feel the taste of the sea! The sandwich with the panelle, the cunzato bread, the arancine. Among the desserts there are: spagnolette, cappidduzzi, fried iris and the famous cannoli.

What are you waiting for, come and have fun!
