Sample the sumptuous cuisine
Sicilian cuisine is filled with gastronomical delights, and on the island of Pantelleria, you can get the best of Sicilian cooking mixed with North African specialities. The island’s rich soil is resplendent with minerals and provides excellent conditions for a range of fresh produce – it is no wonder that for thousands of years, warring cultures have battled for control of this fertile isle.
Expect fresh-off-the-boat seafood, cous cous, spicy stews, ricotta-based dishes and plenty of capers which the island is famous for. Pantelleria is also the home to an exquisite dessert wines – just the treat to finish your meal with a flourish.
How to get to Pantelleria
Pantelleria is large enough to offer its own airfield. Visitors can fly from Trapani or Palermo with Meridiana airlines whilst those coming from Italy can fly from Milan and Rome at certain times of year with Aitalia and blu-express.
Alternatively, it is possible to take the ferry from Sicily. There are daily ferries (for both passengers and cars) running from Trapani as well as the passenger-only hydrofoil service. Contact Ustica or Siremar for further information and timetables and always double-check before you travel as last-minute changes have been known to occur. Boat services also run from Mazara del Vallo during the peak summer months.
