The island of Pantelleria with its 83 square kilometres, its mountains, its lake, its strategic position, its various colonisations, and its being a volcanic island is an extraordinary place. The island is, in fact, a paradise for hikers, ornithologists and botanists.
We will visit the lake of Venus with its unique ecosystem in the world; Mount Gelfiser with its marvellous landscapes;
The Balata dei Turchi; the great mountain; the Cuddia of Mida; Mueggen and the Piana di Ghirlanda are among the most important places of naturalistic point of view.
The thing that impresses us the most is the enormous effort made by the inhabitants of the island, which over the centuries have transformed the island by obtaining arable land, through a cultivation technique that is now Unesco´s heritage.
This technique allowed the inhabitants to grow capers, lentils and grapes typical of the island.
During the tour we will also discover exciting coves like the Elephant’s Arch.
There is also an excursion by bus to visit the thermal baths, the Sesi archaeological sites and the castle.
Finally we will taste the cuisine of Pantelleria. On the island we will find Mediterranean recipes with Arabic influences, dishes full of colours, aromas and genuineness typical of this island.
