Flegree Islands


The largest of the Flegreans, dominated by Mount Epomeo, famous for its hydrothermal resources and its mild and temperate climate, is a destination for international tourism. The island's dominant feature is the lush green, present not only on the peaks of the very small rocks and in the vineyards, but also in the stones, which constitute the typical "green tuff. The main port also serves as access to the island, which it extends up to the Aragonese Castle, whose construction dates back to the 5th century BC Other ports are: Casamicciola, Forio d'Ischia and S. Angelo, the latter built on the east side of a strip of sand, which connects Punta S. Angelo to the mainland, is one of the most picturesque corners of the island whose naturalness has remained unchanged.


Certainly the least known of the Neapolitan islands, it originates from some extinct volcanoes. The coast, overlooking the sea, is tuff-like, but moving inland, the island is undulating and rich in orchards and gardens. The marine and the terrestrial environment are perfectly integrated and create, among them, a wonderful and incomparable union. The island's main port is Marina di Procida, a fishing village, comprising two vast basins, the East one being used by boaters. To the south of the island you can visit the Corricella, a fishing port, where the famous film "Il Postino" by Massimo Troisi was filmed and the Chiaiolella, a very pretty fishing village, with pink or yellow ocher houses, a safe harbor sheltered by almost all the winds. In summer, the most important festival is the Sagra del Mare, in honor of "Graziella", protagonist of the homonymous novel by Alfonso La Martine.


Its name derives from the Greek Kapros (Island of wild boars) and consists of two municipalities, Capri and Anacapri. Its coasts are very high and jagged, the maximum height is the Monte Solare (m. 586 slm) from which you can enjoy a wonderful view over the entire Gulf of Naples. Its temperate and very humid climate favors a luxuriant flora. The only port of the island, located on the northern coast is Marina Grande, but it is possible to anchor it to the east or west of the latter, or in the case of winds from the north in the loop of Marina Piccola (on the slope of the island). From Marina Grande, go up to Capri either on foot or by funicular. During the Roman era, 12 villas were built on the island of which it is still possible to visit the remains. The creeks to visit are: the Cala di Matermania, the Cala Ventroso, the White Grotto, the Green Grotto and the famous Blue Grotto. The famous Piazzetta of Capri. On May 14, San Costanzo is celebrated with a procession through the streets of Capri.

Amalfitan Coast

Nowhere do the colors shine so different and clear as on the Amalfi Coast, which has always been an elegant destination for prestigious visitors. Set like incomparable gems in a precious diadem, the villages scattered along the coast capture every tourist, even the most savvy. Here everything becomes a symbol: the land rich in citrus fruits, the sea with the most incredible shades of blue and green, the suggestive beaches, the small islands, the agglomerates of white, pink and yellow houses around tiny harbors.


The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline south of the Sorrento Peninsula, in the Campania region. Famous holiday destination, it is characterized by steep cliffs and a jagged coastline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and the rocky ridge of Sorrento winds through sumptuous villas, terraced vineyards and lemon groves overlooking the sea. In the blue serenity of the sky and the sea, Amalfi, if you look at it from the port, it is enclosed like in the hollow of a hand. Above the scenery of the mountains, articulated and moved like a backdrop dotted with houses; below, a picturesque plot of alleys, stairs, up to the breath of the square where the cathedral of St. Andrew dominates majestically.


Positano strikes deeply. It is a place that does not seem real to you as long as you are there, but of which you feel with nostalgia all the profound reality when you left it. Its houses climb up a slope so steep that it looks like a cliff, if it weren't for the stairs that were cut there. The water of the small curved bay, of an incredible blue and green, gently laps against a beach of small pebbles. There is only one street, and it does not reach the beach. Everything else is stairs, some steep like those in pegs. Do not walk, if you go to find a friend: you climb or you go down. When you happen to discover a beautiful place like Positano, the first impulse is almost always to keep your discovery for you.


Stretched between fragrant parks and gardens full of orange and lemon groves, Sorrento is the symbol of the coast, enclosing all its mystery and its charm in the legend of Ulysses charmed by the Sirens. The foundation is traditionally and legendarily attributed to the ancient Greeks, but Sorrento had as settlers first the Italic peoples, starting from the Etruscans and then, from 420 BC, the influence of the Osci was important. In Roman times, Sorrento is remembered for having participated in the Italic insurrection (90 BC); a colony was then deduced from Silla, which was later followed by an allocation of Octavian's veterans. It was then the municipality of the Menenia tribe. It was a bishopric at least since 420. During the crisis of Byzantine rule in Italy, the town acquired autonomy as a duchy, first under the supremacy of the dukes of Naples, then with its own archons and dukes, always fighting with Amalfi, Salerno and the Saracens.

Pontine Islands

A few miles from the Lazio coast, the archipelago of the Pontine Islands has managed to keep nature and the sea intact and unspoiled. Considered since ancient times, one of the most evocative and enchanting of the whole Mediterranean, it consists of 6 islands, of volcanic origin with a variety of landscapes, bays and inlets of exceptional beauty. They consist of two groups 22 miles apart. The first formed by four islands to the south-west of the Circeo:
Ponza, Gavi, Zannone and Palmarola and the second south-east oriented, compared to the first, formed by S. Stefano and Ventotene. The latter, in addition to the old Roman port (port Nicola), where access is allowed only to boats within 12 meters, has the new port adjacent (Cala Rossano).


Main island of the archipelago reports evidence of the 5000-2000 BC about the presence of prehistoric man in the archipelago, it was later used as a stage by the Phoenician ships until it became a Roman colony around 312 BC The port designed in the pre-nineteenth century was built in the natural amphitheater on the remains of the ancient Roman installations, on two floors, joined by ramps to the square above, today a social and meeting place, where June 20 celebrates the feast of the patron saint Silverio papa. The port can accommodate up to 200 boats on eight floating jetties, managed by private owners, equipped with water and electricity outlets. During crowded periods it is possible to anchor in the harbor, between the Gennarino jetty and the Ravia rock. Ground services include: fuel distributor, slipway and slipway, mobile crane and storage, engine and electrical repairs, repair of wooden hulls. The whole island is bordered by inlets and bays, where it is possible to shelter depending on the exposure to the winds.


Palmarola is the westernmost of the archipelago, its coasts are surrounded by numerous dangers but you will find magnificent anchorages there. Arriving from the South, the first landscape that presents itself is the surprising one of Cala Brigantina: on the right a smooth and low rock stands out against a white wall of stratified rock that is mirrored in the jade sea; on the left the impervious complex of the Faraglioni of Mezzogiorno is a counterpoint to the clear scenario of the island. Turn the tip, enter the crater circle engraved by splendid coves, shattered into rocks and faraglioni, ennobled by the high and steep boulder that supports the church of S. Silverio, patron of Ponza. On the north-facing wall, the ancient caves carved into the tuff open up like a beehive. We advise you to visit Punta Tramontana, from where you can admire a beautiful cove called "The Cathedral", for the sheer cliff that reaches the sea and the large inlets that recall this image. In Cala del Porto you will find a small restaurant on the shore in summer.


Starting from Ponza and heading for the Phlegraean mountains, the islands of Ventotene and Santo Stefano are approximately 22 miles distant from Circeo and Terracina about 30 miles, Gaeta 26 and Ischia harbor 24 miles. The old port of the island of Ventotene, Porto Nicola, was dug by the Romans in the tuff, as well as the bollards and the portico along the entire quay, still perfectly functioning. At the mouth of the port and more precisely at the base of the tuff block where the lighthouse stands, we can recognize the Roman fish market for fish farming, equipped with an ingenious water exchange system through ducts that flow into two covered pools. The island has many other wonderful historical testimonies including: the remains of a large Roman complex towards Punta Eolo; the Bourbon staircase and the fortress. In addition to the old port, to the north adjacent is the Porto Nuovo (Cala Rossano) protected by a quay of overflowing quay. The port offers services such as: fuel distributor, water, electricity, food supply, ice and nautical shops.

Santo Stefano

Only one mile from Ventotene is the island of Santo Stefano, a large rock a couple of kilometers in perimeter, surmounted by the Bourbon penitentiary, where Pertini and the anarchist Bresci stayed. Worth a visit on land, with relative walk and visit to the now abandoned building.
