Pescatori island has hosted for centuries a little fishermen community.
There are about fifty inhabitants here, some of them are fishermen as their ancestors.
The village preserved the ancient architecture. In spite of its bigger sisters this Island makes us think about a simple and rustic life.
The narrow roads don’t have luxury villas but small pastel colored houses with long balconies where fishermen used to dry out fish.
Instead of big and luxury gardens here you will find cobbled roads and steps, you will admire a romantic and evocative sights!
