Everyone is ready for the first day of discovering the island. After breakfast, our minibuses will take us to two of Pantelleria’s must-sees: Lake Venus and the Gadir Baths. It is in these places that you will understand the meaning of the phrase “Pantelleria an open-air spa”.
The first stop is at Lake Venus 1, the legendary place where the goddess Venus used to bathe every morning. It is a volcanic crater that has created a basin with a unique ecosystem. You can relax by immersing yourself in the small pools of warm water or by sprinkling your body with natural mud, which is considered an excellent treatment for the well-being of the skin.
After this relaxing stop, we will continue the tour, passing by Cala Cinque Denti 2 and reaching the marina of Gadir 3. This is a thermal resort par excellence, thanks to its pools of thermal water dug into the rock. We will continue this relaxing morning; it is in this small harbour that you will have the opportunity to approach not only the warm waters but also the sea of Pantelleria for the first time.
Afterwards, we will have lunch in a local restaurant, where we will taste only typical recipes.
Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.
The image you will take home with you:
The small harbour of Gadir has long been the only example of a fishing village on the island, where the sailors of Pantelleria used to sell their freshly caught fish. Cala Gadir is still very much alive and you can still see the old fishermen weaving their creels with reed or preparing their nets for fishing.
