Pantelleria is an island lying between Sicily, Italy and Tunisia. Although Italian it is proud of it's arab influence and 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.
