Procida, a small rainbow tinted island off the coast of Naples in Southern Italy! Nestled in the Gulf of Naples, this sleepy yet picturesque village features pastel hued homes stacked along the Corricella Marina. Prior to heading to Italy for one month, Jason and I knew we wanted to visit Procida after seeing a few photos on Pinterest of the famous crescent shaped Italian island. If you’re looking for a relaxing day in a peaceful environment free of tourist crowds, I encourage you to take a day trip to Procida, Italy!
How to get to Procida from Naples
If you’re staying in Central Naples, the journey to Procida by ferry is actually very simple and only a quick thirty minutes! Check out the ferry times on Visit Procida then head to the Molo Beverello port to purchase your tickets. Originally we wanted to buy our tickets online. If you purchase your tickets online, you not only have to print the tickets out ahead of time but also incur an additional booking fee. We visited Procida in early June and the prices were about 32 Euros each way. It seems like the prices fluctuate depending on the season! Buying tickets from the following ferry companies at the port is easy and all three travel to Procida everyday until the late evening!
Procida’s Viewpoint: Corricella Marina
When you get off the ferry, you’ll immediately see pastel architecture and fall in love! However, look for signs pointing toward Corricella Marina! If you’re without wifi, have your destination plotted in Google Maps ahead of time! Pro tip, you can also download the Google Maps of that area while you have wifi so that you can access it without wifi. Luckily, Corricella is only a half mile away from the ferry terminal and totally walkable. However, get ready for some steep inclines as Corricella is at the highest point of the island. Once you arrive to the breathtaking viewpoint, you can see the amphitheater style shoreline. Enjoy the charming character of this sweetly simplistic fishing village!
Setting Up The Perfect Instagram Shot In Procida
Once you arrive to the viewpoint, you’ll see a banana yellow ledge with a thickened area perfect for safely leaning or lightly sitting. To the left of the ledge, you’ll notice a large sitting area as well as lookout point enclosed with glass paneling. In between the glass panels are sturdy concrete barriers. Have your travel partner sit on the wide barriers to get the perfect from above style shot! We even perched our tripod on the large concrete barrier so that we could get a photo together with the beautiful backdrop!
How to return to Naples from Procida
From what I remember, you can’t buy the return ticket from the Beverello port. When we arrived to Procida’s Marina Grande Port, we walked over to the ticket booth to get our return ticket back to the Beverello Port in Naples. Boy are we glad we purchased our return tickets as soon as we arrived! We thought we knew what time we wanted to leave based on the online schedule, but for some reason those times did not match the actual listed times at the Procida port.
