Pantelleria is an island lying between Sicily, Italy and Tunisia. It is culturally Sicilian in every way. There is a great emphasis on the art of hospitality. It is becoming quite a chic destination. It is striking and hilly, with the countryside dotted with white Dammuso houses. There are no beaches – people swim off the black rocks.

The main centre is Pantelleria Town, along with the much smaller Scauri, Tracino & Kamma and Rekale.

Daily overnight ferries run from Trapani in Sicily, running more frequently alongside hydrofoils in Summer. Hydrofoil from Mazara del Vallo twice daily. See SIREMAR and Ustica Lines.

A new agreement with the hotels on Pantelleria has created a long period of direct flights to Pantelleria from Rome and Milan. These flights are on big jets (300 seats or more), only on weekends, 3 or 4 times each weekend day. Usually ALITALIA fly from Milan Linate and Rome Fiumicino from June to September. You can book and buy tickets on alitalia’s own site. Another company that offer seasonal flights is Blu Express It generally departs from Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa. The scheduled flights are released every year in April / May. Lastly there are some charter flights, but are not very reliable as they change often their schedule and it is too risky to make a connection with them.
