What an unexpected treat Marsala is.
I'm in the old town a short walk from the sea and it's lovely. To get here i passed through some not pretty suburbs. There are very few tourists and it has everything the more popular cities offer. I walked to the archaeological museum which from the outside was bland, inside it was beautiful. Everything was so well displayed. From there I walked back into town through Garibaldi's gate who you can read about here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expedition_of_the_Thousand
Then to the cathedral where I sat for a while until a coffin was brought in followed by about 200 mourners many in dark suites and sunglasses it was like a scene from the godfathers. So I walked along the waterfront for a while which was nice and quiet. I'll have time to see more this evening and tomorrow morning as I have arranged with the hotel to stay until early afternoon when I ride to Palermo to catch a 13 hour ferry to Sardinia.Read more
