"Lago di Venere" Isola di Pantelleria Things to Do Tip by sierralyndon
Isola di Pantelleria Things to Do: 5 reviews and 5 photos
Lago di Venere is a lake on the island that can clearly be seen from the air as you take off and land. It is a lovely emerald green from a distance, but when you come up close to it you'll find that it is a volcanic lake. The temperature in certain parts of the lake can go up to 50°C if I recall correctly. You'll have to be a brave soul to sit in that sulphur pit. Although it started getting quite comfortable after a while. The mud in the lake was also supposed to be therapeutic... which was why most visitors (not me though!) slapped themselves with mud, and looked very very funny when the mud dried up. They looked like gingerbread men and women walking around the beach.
