Ischia – Procida – Capri
Basic informations about the itinerary
In the bay of Naples, a few miles from the coast, the Islands of Ischia, Procida and Capri shine as jewels.
Ischia: it’s the biggest Island of Campania and hosts millions of visitors every year, attracted by its picturesque historical center, full of artisanal antique shops, art galleries and live music venues. Not to mention its world-famous beaches and healing thermal springs. But its monuments, as much as, worth it, like the Arogonese Castle, the island’s most visited historical attraction, or the Cathedral of Assunta, situated precariously on top of a cliff.
Procida: it’s the smallest of the three. It’s small as breathtaking, as matter of fact to be a sought-out destination by movie directors of some of the greatest cinematic masterpieces. This island has volcanic origin and is connected by a bridge to the neighboring island of Vivara. The beach of Chiaiolella, famous for its shallow water and rocky areas, and the beach of Pozzo Vecchio, the backdrop in several scenes from the famous film, “Il Postino” (“The Postman”), can’t be missed. There is no shortage of archeological sites and edifices from past eras, like the magnificent site of Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo.
Capri: recognized as a land of poets, Capri is also famous for its high fashion boutiques, art galleries and small artisanal shops. Capri is a magnet for catamarans and yachts from around the world: for Its sea, tinged with many different shades of color, and the numerous spectacular natural sites, like the world famous Grotta Azzurra of Anacrapi and its scenografic Faraglioni.
