Plunge into history and visit the underwater natural museum
The seabeds around Ustica are scattered with archaeological remains, but not all are easy to identify as they are mostly covered by beds of Posidonia oceanica and other sea plants, or hidden under thick, crusty layers of fossils. Nevertheless, you can appreciate its treasures throughout the settled underwater archaeological routes where remains found in situ are marked with explanatory labels.
