Lampedusa

Lampedusa ©
Italy's southernmost territory, Lampedusa, is known for its turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, and island charm.
On the 2nd (Sat), look for gifts at Il Pescato Di Lampedusa S.A.S. Di Costa Antonino & C., kick back and relax at Cala Pulcino, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia dei Conigli. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Sciatu Persu and then head outdoors with Kalo’s cafe.

Plan my trip to Lampedusa with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Toronto, Canada to Lampedusa is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Traveling from Toronto to Lampedusa, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Toronto in May since evenings lows in Lampedusa dip to 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sun) so you can travel to Catania.
