Levanzo (Sicilian: Lèvanzu) is the smallest of the three main Aegadian Islands in the Mediterranean Sea west of Sicily, Italy. It forms a part of the municipality (comune) of Favignana in the Province of Trapani.
Levanzo has an area of 5.82 square kilometres (2.25 sq mi). The highest point is Pizzo Monaco with a height of 278 metres (912 feet). The island has about 450 inhabitants, who are concentrated around a tiny port, that gives little shelter from storms.
The ancient name of the island was "Phorbantia" which is a sort of plants growing there.
Furthermore, in the water of Cala Minnola, on the eastern side of the island of Levanzo, there is one of the most important sicilian underwater archaeological site in which a Roman cargo ship, loaded with wine amphoras, lies at 27 meters of depth.
