Venus' Lake

There isn't a lot to do on the Italian island of Pantelleria, which sits in the middle of the Mediterranean, actually closer to North African than it is to Sicily. But then there's Lago di Venere, Lake of Venus. The football-field-sized lake is supposed to have healing qualities. Sit in the lake near the spot where the water is bubbling up from the lake floor and spread the magical mud all over your body.
