Passengers traveling by ferry to Procida in Italy arrive in one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples, between Cape Miseno and the island of Ischia!
Procida is a small island it holds a population of about 10,000. It seems to want to keep its secret to itself, although it’s popular with napoletani looking for a summer escape from the steaming, chaotic city. Tourists in Procida can walk everywhere to the black sand beaches that ring the island, almost empty during the week and bustling with families on weekends; and through the winding narrow streets in the center, the high walls hiding cube shaped houses and lush gardens. Doors are ancient and rusted, paintwork is faded and crumbling and the streets are enlivened with pink bougainvillea and tiny white jasmine.
The highest point on the island and the oldest village is the Terra Murata. The fortress walls were built as protection from invaders in the 15th century. Marina Corricella, the colourful fishing village that’s built into the rock leading to the sea is the highlight of Procida’s. Some part’s of and The Talented Mr Ripley were filmed on Procida.
