The stunning colours of Corricella
Dec 2019
We had one spare day in Naples and since it’s so close we decided to go see Procida. We took an early ferry because Corricella looks most stunning in the morning. Upon arrival to the island we walked straight up to Terra Murata. Shortly before Santa Margherita Nuova church is the best view point. In Terra Murata itself there are two more view points towards the mainland. One is inside Abbazia San Michele Arcangelo (they expect a small donation), the other one with a slighty better view is just behind the church and public. The highlight of the trip was sitting on the terrace of a laid-back bistro in Corricella and watching the fishermen mending their nets.

Excellent once you get there
Sep 2019
As always, transport was a challenge. Mainly due to the failure of the Neapolitans to provide any information. It’s OK if you’re a local and know where to go but there is virtually no signage to assist tourists. We wanted to get to Procida via hydrofoil or ferry. It was virtually impossible to find the ticket office and when we did there was a complete scrum of confused people. Eventually we got to the correct ticket booth to see a sign saying “No credit cards”. We had to rush to an ATM to get cash. I gave the cashier a 50€ note and she asked me if I had anything smaller. I said “No and it wouldn’t be a problem if you accepted credit cards.” She just laughed.

Both hydrofoil and ferries were fine – on time, clean, efficient

Good luck finding the departure point for the ferries from Napoli to Procida.

Price Procida to Napoli ferry- €10.60
Napoli to Procida hydrofoil - €16.40

Lovely Island, But Beware Of The Crossing
Sep 2019
We recently visited Procida during our 5 day visit to Naples. The island itself is lovely, and offers several interesting sightseeing attractions, mainly within a reasonable walking distance of the 'port'.

However, for those who are not good 'sailors', my advice would be take the slightly slower car ferry, as opposed to the hydrofoil. During our outward trip on the hydrofoil, I would suggest that upward of 30% of the passengers were sea sick. The vessel had either ineffective or no air conditioning making the seating area very uncomfortable in hot weather. The crew appeared to be used to this sort of event, moving people to the rear of the vessel, and providing sick bags. Whilst the crew were helpful to those passengers suffering from sea sickness, it may have been more appropriate for this 'issue' to be mentioned at the ticket office (as there was an alternative). Thankfully we had not booked a return journey at Naples port, so we booked the car ferry on the return trip from Procida. The latter was a far more comfortable experience, with some external seating for extra fresh air.

Overall, an island well worth visiting, but think about the method of transportation.

Rare visit nets satisfaction

If your trip isn’t the virgin escapade to Amalfi you will love a less affected tourist zone. I love it because of its simplicity and the traditions of the local cultura. Multi coloured houses rest against the tufa rock making the local architecture the most distinctive in the region. Lots of vaulted buildings withy arches playing a premier sight. Love the marina, at the footy of Terra Murata, virtually sits untouched by modern times. Gardens are filled with lemon trees. Lots of lovely beaches

Perfect place to stay in Procida !
Jul 2019
La Coricella is one of the best place to stay in Procida. A little bit complicated to access you have to walk by the marina to arrive at the hotel, there is no road to arrive by car.
But the view on the marina worth it.
The breakfast and the restaurant are also good and staff is really kind.
If you are looking for nice place to chill be sure to stop by La coricella for 2 or 3 days. As the island is small I don't recommend to stay more than a week in Procida.

A Pretty Island Free Of Too Many Tourists
Jun 2019 • Couples
It is an island of pastel-hued houses, old churches and some great views essentially free from the tourist crowds. It is small at 4 Square kilometers and plenty of places to walk although the streets are narrow and the traffic a little frenetic at times.Be sure to visit Corricella and the old caste and the Abbazia di San Michele and also walk to the Marina Di Chiaiolella. A fast ferry runs frequently from below the castle in Naples.

Lovely but
May 2019 • Couples
There isn't that much to do, but it is a nice small island that offers nice views, good value for money and fewer tourists compared with its larger neighbours. The old town on the promontory is nice with lovely views and some attractive old buildings. We missed the route so I add a comment for you to help you avoid the mistake: the old town is on the top corner if you look at the map, turn up from the harbour, follow the one-way street to the left up the hill. Corricella was pretty whether you were looking down on it from above or actually in it. We thought it would be nice to walk the length of this small island to Porticciolo, but it wasn't that pleasant - you are always walking on single track roads with cars and scooters buzzing by. It was better coming back by the coast road, slightly longer but more beautiful than the direct route. We went for half a day and had we stayed in the top corner by the old town this would have been a perfect stay; as it was, by adding in the walk down the length of the island we were rather rushed. It's best to buy your ferry/hydrofoil tickets from the company's office on the harbour side as you still have to print your ticket at the office if you buy online (and they charge you a surcharge for the pleasure). The hydrofoil is more functional (a bit quicker and at a useful time for us) but the ferry is much more inspiring as you can admire the views much better than through the scratched dirty windows of the hydrofoil.

The views are breathtaking. It's less touristic than Capri, the prices are for everyone and people are very friendly. Though, there are some buildings which need rehabilitation. Procida island is definitely a must-see if you go to Naples.

Hell to walk
Nov 2018 • Couples
If you think Naples is bad then double it for mad traffic in Procida.
Bikes race along and I was brushed by 5 rear view mirrors during the day and then the truck came and I had to dive into a doorway fast.
The fishing village is beautiful and the top is a great view but take the bus and don't walk it. The noise and the smell of fumes and the rubbish on the beach was shocking. The one beach we went to just up from the fishing village and as stated filthy as were the streets of the island.
Walking down the port on Via Umberto there were fish heads dumped in the street. Bad enough to dodge the traffic but to risk slipping on a fish head walking down hill was a bit much.
Procida is a potentially beautiful place but spoilt by this.
The graffiti was not as bad as Naples and the food in the fishing village was terrific. But a hell of a process to get it.
If you go take the small bus. Under no circumstances walk it. I got yelled at by one motor cyclist when he whizzed around a corner and had to hurriedly brake because I was there. At the time I was dodging a scooter.
So much for a quiet peaceful island.
