Bathymetric chart of the Strait of Sicily

Strait of Sicily Map at Peak of Last Ice Age (link)

With the sea level at 120 meters below its current level, as it was at the last glacial maximum, there is at least one route, by way of a series of island hops, where the passage between Sicily and Tunisia could have been made with the longest hop between islands being not more than eight miles.
