Marsala and Museum Baglio Anselmi Lilybaeum

Visit to old Lilybaeum and the museum in modern day Marsala . No photos allowed in museum so cannot show the Old Punic warship from 280BC it makes the Mary Rose look a bit sad. For the outdoor visit our guide (who spoke no English) handed over to a group a local school kids. Marco could speak very good english and insisted that he give us a guide tour of the ruins and later of Marsala itself. We were ably escorted by about ten very bright, very friendly, sixteen year olds who made our visit a really special day. Really could not see that happening in the UK. Even got an invitation to join them for lunch at home, we graciously declined but the thought was wonderful.
