Enchanting Island

A short hop from Ischia is its baby sister Procida, an enchanting island lined with pastel-coloured houses. The Bay of Naples’ smallest island is also its best-kept secret; Procida can be compared to a stripped back Portofino and is refreshingly real. The most picturesque spot on the island is Marina Corricella.  Have a morning coffee on the waterfront with its painted fishing-boats before your final cruise back to Naples for your onward flight.

Clients come back to the Amalfi Coast year after year, for its timelessly fascinating history, lively culture, cuisine and picturesque scenery.
