Ponza is the largest of the Pontine Islands which is an archipelago that lies off the Italian coast between the cities of Rome and Naples. Ponza is well known for its Blue Grottoes that were created by the Etruscans and include the Serpents Grotto and the Roman Gallery, which is a Roman tunnel that connects the town of Ponza to the now closed large sandy beach of Chiaia di Luna. Popular sites with visitors are the many archaeological ruins that can be seen that include Egyptian, Canaanite, Greek and Phoenician necropoli ruins in the middle of the island. Also on parts of the island are Roman ruins that are mixed with Etruscan ruins. A large statue called Il Mamozio ("The Mummy") or Il Mitreo, meaning miter or priest's hat, is a 3,000 year old marble statue and was found in the harbour. The statue depicts a local Etrurian consul, it is now displayed in a museum in Napoli behind protective plastic, where it was reunited with its head. It is the oldest known Etruscan statue of its kind and is extremely rare.
