The Aegadian Archipelago includes Favignana, Levanzo, Marettimo and two minor islands, Formica and Maraone.While the climate is mild and dry during the spring, and warmer and longer in the summertime, it is consistently balanced with gentle sea breeze. Since 1999, the Aegadian Archipelago is the largest Italian Marine Reserve (1523 km2) with some of the cleanest waters in Mediterranean Sea.
The island of Favignana went down in history thanks to the Calabrian Florio family, whose industrial activity, navigation company, wine and oil production, blue fin tuna and blue fish in oil, made for the most powerful entrepreneurial family of the entire Mediterranean sea, throughout the 19th century.
Legend has it that Ignazio Florio Junior ordered the demolition of the first floor by the craft centre, 'I Pretti' which was connected to Palazzo Florio through a path of underpasses, just to let Donna Franca enjoy the beautiful panoramic view towards Levanzo.
