Located in the Flegrian group of islands is the Italian island of Procida. It lies just of the coast of Naples, between Cape Miseno and the island of Ischia. It is a small island with a land area of just 4 sq. km and a rocky coastline measuring 16 km. Terra Murata hill is the island's highest point and measures just 91 meters above sea level. In terms of visitor attractions, the island does not have much to see and what it does have seem to have been neglected. Therefore, visitors to the island should indulge in its relaxing, shabby-chic, atmosphere rather than to go searching of ancient monuments. Marina Corricella is perhaps the prettiest spot on the island and is a thin sliver of waterfront backed by a cliff of fisherman's houses. Behind a long fishing harbour, houses were built on and into the rock in a kind of pretty vertical muddle. There are several bars and restaurants in Corricella, with tables attractively scattered along the waterfront.
Ferries to Ischia generally stop at Procida. There are both fast and slow services, and some run from a different port in Naples, called Mergellina, which is handy for the Italian railway network. Procida is also served by ferries from a nearby town on the mainland called Pozzuoli.
The Italian town of Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
