Travelling to Pantelleria?
Getting there, accommodation and our Pantelleria guide
Visitors to Pantelleria can bathe in the natural hot springs and sip the deliciously sweet Zibibbo wine under the incredible deep blue starry nights. Corte Pantesca I and II are located two kilometres inland, on the sunset side of Pantelleria. Equidistant between the villages of Scauri and Pantelleria town.
Lying south of the western-most tip of Sicily, Pantelleria is closer to Tunisia and the African continent, than to the Italian mainland. You can reach the island by plane or ferry.
