Procida is a small island near Naples in Campania, Italy.

Understand

Procida is the smallest island of the Gulf of Naples; it is rich in attractions and archaeology. As well, the small island of Vivara, linked to Procida by a bridge, has archaeological excavations.

The architecture of Procida has a Greek origin. In fact, the history of Procida is concentrated first of all on the medieval village “Terra Murata” and on “Corricella”, the fisher settlement.

The island has served as the set for numerous films, such as The “Postman” by Massimo Troisi and some scenes in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” were shot just on Corricella.

The landmarks of Procida reflect the typical Mediterranean pastel colours.

Procida offers simply cooking and at least 10 excellent restaurants with plain cooking based on fresh fish. This simple style never fails, thanks to the 20 fishing boats and a lot of small drifters.

The specialties of the cooking are: stewed rabbit, (it goes back to the Borbonen who came on Procida to hunt the wild rabbit on Vivara) and ‘spaghetti’ with sea-urchin. Procida has 6 beaches and 3 tufaceous sides with crystal-clear waters.

Get in

Ferry service is available at reasonable prices from Naples, Capri, and Ischia. you can get ferry information via http://www.procida.it/orari.htm. I would suggest you get on metro from the ground floor of Napoli centro train station to station "Pozzouli" then get off and take the ferry at the port of "Pozzuoli". It cost about 1 eruo (2009).

Get around

The Moorings Sailing Holidays have a base on Procida, offering bareboat charters for you to explore the islands and coastline at your own pace.
