Easter and April brakes for Pantelleria
Spring has taken over the nature in Pantelleria: the island woke from its winter hibernation and start to bloom everywhere, days become longer and they are an invitation to sunbathe, enjoying the warm rays of the sun and the amazing sunsets overlooking the African coastline.
And looking at the calendar, it smells like relax: as a matter of fact, April invites to have a quick holiday in Pantelleria for Easter or to benefit of the bank holidays of the 25th of April and 1st of May. April 2017 is great to have long weekends: starting with the Easter one from the 15th to the 17th (3 days) to continue with the one from the 22nd to the 25th (4 days) and from the 29th to the 1st of May (3 days).
There are many occasions to enjoy Pantelleria in spring, a perfect season to discover the almost inaccessible places in summer due to high temperatures: from the numerous archeological sites all over the island to the paths of the National Park, reaching the top of Montagna Grande in order to have a 360 degrees view of the Mediterranean Sea; it’s also a great time to have a full immersion into the cultivated fields or even to dare a first plunge into the water, taking advantage of the hot springs of Gadir and the Lake of Venus in the East or Nikà and Sataria at the South-West.
Not forgetting traditions, in Easter there are many processions in various places of the island and many sweets to be tasted, like the cannatreddi, short-crust sweets that have an egg at the middle as a symbol of Resurrection, the pantescan pasticciotti and the cassatelle, filled with ricotta cream.
