Marsala – the windy city
A short timelapse picturing the wind city of Marsala, Sicily. Cicero, who served as Quaestor in Marsala, from 75 to 73 BC, called Marsala “Pulcherrima, sed Ventosa” (“Beautiful but windy”).
Marsala is a city in Sicily most known for it’s wine but it is also famous for the wind. It is surrounded with fantastic flat water spots and the whole region is considered to be one of the best spots in the world for kiting. Constant wind, shallow water, splendid landscapes and amazing food. Lagoon Lo Stagnone, right in front of island Santa Maria is one of the most famous and impressive spots in the world where thousands of kiters come every year.
Coming here they can rely on constant and thermal wind up to 30 knots, especially between April and September. If you are looking for a next spot for your kite trip consider Marsala.
