Grotta del Genovese


In addition to swimming and diving, Levanzo is famous for its archaeological finds. Within the Grotta del Genovese there is some wonderful prehistoric graffiti, depicting animals and dancers, while on the seabed still lie the remains of ships sunk during the great naval battle of 241 BC, won by the Romans led by Gaius Lutatius Catulus against the Carthaginians led by Hanno.
