NC: What are your tips for a nettement chic day in Panarea?
Anne-Sophie: Start the day with breakfast and people watching at the port. After a seriously strong Sicilian espresso and a "cornetto" (croissant in italian), it's time to head for the sea. The island is totally volcanic which means no sandy beaches. But the water is fabulous and a day on a boat visiting the surrounding coves is a must. Don't miss the volcano of Stromboli which sits opposite Panarea.
Lunch in one of the many trattoria around the island is a perfect way to take a break from the sun. Beware, the spaghetti alle vongole can quickly become an addiction!
If you do head off to discover the island's interior you will be on foot or in an electric mini-moke as there are no cars on Panarea.
For dinner I adore Da Pina. Don't miss the gnocchis with courgettes and the spaghetti ai frutti di mare…
