This small, hilly island between Sicily and Tunisia is growing in popularity as a tourist destination (so if you’re like us, you’ll want to get there soon). Rent a moped to explore. One must-see: the island’s thermal pools. Beaches are rocky, but offer great snorkeling just offshore.

Scenic walk around the lake and a natural volcanic spa with wonderful mud suitable for applying on your body and when dried- scrubbing it off and enjoying a swim. For best experience - go early! At 9 am there were 6 persons, at 11 am about 70 and more arriving.

You simply have to visit this natural sauna, it's an incredibly unusual experience. Drive up the long road (follow the signposts), park up and then it's a 15-20min walk along the side of the calera - great views - then up a short flight of stone steps to what at first glance seems to be a couple of wooden benches under some trees. Then strip down to your bathers and flipflops and squeeze through a narrow gap between 2 huge rocks to sit in an absolutely pitch-dark cave filled with hot steam. Inside there is room for around 5 people and you sit on little flat rocks. Remember to bring bottled water. We shared the cave with a local retired couple who said they use the cave several times a week and they brought branches of fresh rosemary to place at the back of the cave to 'clean the air' and it gave off a fabulous perfume. 20mins is about as long as you should give it and you can cool off at the bench area outside, which catches the cool breezes rising from the valley below. It's really quite extraordinary.

is quite difficult to go there so far avoid to go there in the hot hours. on the late afternoon, my be after the video of the musemu, you can relax and enjoy a private and exclusive swimming pool with real fish inside

We arrived at this winery not knowing what to expect. it is not particularly inviting from the outside. Inside was charming. The owner, Francesca, is so lovely and knowledgeable. The wine was wonderful. We were there when there was a special appetizer event on a Sunday evening with an American chef, we ate things that I still dream of eating. Stuffed zucchini flowers, local figs wrapped in a tiny strip of spicy salame, and chocolate truffles filled with passito or grappa made from their wine. Everything featured local products. The Leukos white, Gusiras nero d'avola, and their passito, of course, were wonderul! They make everything the real way, no shortcuts and no fillers.
There were kids playing in the outside area and the tour of the winery was really impressive. we will definitely go back and I hope they soon realize their dream of having a wine bar and a few guest rooms!

This was the most pleasant surprise of Pantelleria. It's about an hour drive to the top of the mountain from the city center, but the flora changes dramatically. The temperatures drop significantly, and the landscape becomes heavily forested. There are number of places with tables and benches to stop and enjoy a picnic. Provided the weather is clement, the view is fabulous as you can see the entire island. If you have a local or tour guide, you can see the hidden cave. There is also a grotto at the summit. The mountain is a great get-away for hiking enthusiasts. The locals like to hunt for mushrooms on the mountain. but--be careful--many mushrooms are poisonous. Also, there is a interesting local tradition. Pantellerians (Pantuscans) travel up to the mountain to collect green moss for their Christmas nativity scenes.

Tante aziende fanno vino Passito e non, ma il valore aggiunto di questa cantina oltre ad un ottimo passito è la persona che accoglie i visitatori (Ilaria mi pare) che con cortesia pazienza e senza fretta ti fa assaggiare (gratuitamente e non tutti lo fanno) i vini prodotti.Abbiamo visitato molte cantine ma nella semplicità della cantina D'Ancona noi abbiamo trovato il top
Brava Ilaria e tieni duro

The Black Pearl of Mediteranean. The best wine in the world:Passito del Pantelleria,and a very special MUSCAT.Nothings compare to them.Magical landscapes;try contrada Thikiriki close to Siba from Bukuram sopra till to Bugeber on the secondary dirt road( not mentioned on the maps )- left from MADONA del Rosario.Lots of small and very cute green birds at The Venere Lake.Steam and hot waters:natural sauna in a cave and a kind of "gaizer" close to Contrada Monastiros and free open air natural(some of them) thermal pools.And the best of all: Damuso,the special Islands architecture (try Penelope at Due Gatti).And the best sweets in the world,the very special exquisite delicatesse of Pantelleria:UVA PASSA. Try that one who is produced in contrada CCIAANNREA
