About this photo

Bright colours cover the buildings lining the Port of Corricella on Procida Island, Italy. Situated in the Gulf of Naples between the mainland and Ischia Island, Procida Island is an easy day trip from either Ischia or Naples, with ferries running regularly. 

There is no access to the Port of Corricella by motorised vehicle, adding to the quiet Mediterranean atmosphere. Visitors will find a scattering of bars and restaurants located in the fishing port serving fresh catches; they are the perfect place to sit and look out across the blue ocean, which contrasts with the vivid colours along the shore. Add a stay on Procida Island to Insight Guides’ Wonders of Rome and the Amalfi Coast trip.
