"Pantelleria" Isola di Pantelleria by Polly74

Isola di Pantelleria Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 40 photos

More Africa than Italy

If you're looking for a beautiful island in Italy where you can relax, enjoy the sun, sea, and natural mineral hot springs, then consider a trip to Pantelleria.

Pantelleria, part of the province of Trapani, is one of the southernmost spots in Europe, just thirty miles from Africa. Like so many Sicilian islands, it was formed by two volcanic eruptions.

It is the wild beauty, the dramatic coastline, the incredibly pristine water, the abundance of caves, coves, grottos and inlets, that draw a small but intensely loyal group of visitors to this quiet outpost.

    Oh no! Not another must see place for me to visit when I eventually get to la bella Italia. I've have to move here permanently to see everything I'd like to! Grazie mille Paola!
