Marzamemi stands entirely on the sea and its name derives from the Arabic "Marsà al hamen", which means Bay of Turtle Doves, the birds that pass through here in spring. Another hypothesis, however, is that its name derives from the simple union of the two Arabic words marza (port) and meme (small). Getting lost in the streets of Marzamemi is equivalent to taking a dive back into the past, a past rich in traditions, history and culture. Let yourself be carried away by the scents, explore every single alley, marvel at its colors that smell of the sea.
