Pantelleria: Why go

Back in 2012, this tiny Italian island was a major media darling. A secret hideaway for shy celebrities, it appeared in a Hollywood movie and across the pages of Vogue. Then things went quiet. Thank goodness. The island's wildly beautiful beaches are stroked by the Med, 60 miles southwest of Sicily and 40 miles east of Tunisia. So far it continues to evade mass tourism and its interior is bathed in Arabic influences. Think you know Italy? Think again.
