The wild, windswept volcanic island of Pantelleria, Italy, — known as the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean — marries beach and mountain vacations like few other places can, with its hot springs of thermal waters on the Big Mountain and unspoiled crystal-blue-green sea waters that beckon sailors and sun worshippers.
It’s beautiful and savage, and attracts travelers looking to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of life.
It’s the island on which Ulysses spent seven years loving the nymph Calypso — or so legend has it.
