“Culture does not isolate” – this is the title of the spectacular dossier with which the island of Procida convinced the jury to vote for itself as the capital of culture in 2022. The island of Procida, with an area of about 4 sq. km, can be easily visited in a day starting from the island of Ischia, which is only a few kilometers away. There are daily connections throughout the year from the harbours of Casamicciola and Ischia Porto, while during the tourist season excursions also depart from the harbour of Forio.
Procida has preserved its intimate and authentic identity as a fishing village: its small size allows it to be explored on foot, but also by moped or bicycle.
Upon arrival in Procida, the Marina Grande area welcomes the visitors with its characteristic pastel-colored houses that are reflected in the sea. On the main square, in addition to bars, restaurants and kiosks, there are bus stops and taxis that connect the harbour with other destinations on the island.
