Pantelleria is also a “peasant island”. The work of mankind has been immense: over the centuries the peoples who have inhabited the island have turned an inhospitable land into arable land. The typical local productions, olives and capers, raisins, raisins and wine, have allowed in the past a certain well-being, thanks to the commercial exchanges. The caper is a typical shrub of Mediterranean flora, with beautiful white and pink flowers with violet reflections; its buds are used in various dishes of the Pantelleria cuisine. Zibibbo is the grape from which the passito wine is made, rich in aromas and unique scents, protagonist of the Pantelleria tables. Go to the discovery of the rural districts of the island, stop to buy capers, oil and passito from the farmers, or choose one of the various organized excursions.
