Less famous than Ischia and Capri, it is the island of Procida, which stands out for its typically Mediterranean beauty made up of pastel-coloured houses, ancient fishing boats and small villages perched on the hills. The island is completely of volcanic origin, born from the eruptions of four different volcanoes, now completely extinct and largely submerged. Procida has became very famous thanks to the book “Arturo’s Island” by Elsa Morante and cinematographic masterpieces such as “Il postino” with Massimo Troisi and “The Talented Mr. Ripley” with Matt Damon.
All Procida’s beaches are dark coloured, recalling their volcanic origin, in a unique game of contrasts, making the blue of the sea even more intense. It is impossible not to be conquered by this island where the air smells of salt, narrow stairways wind between colorful buildings that lead to breathtaking views and along the coast you can admire ravines, caves and coves, reachable only by sea.
