Despite its undeniable appeal, Procida is unjustly deprived of tourists’ attention. It doesn’t feature well-developed tourist infrastructure, there are no large-scale hotel complexes and noisy entertainment venues. However, those associating vacations with scenic walks and exploring historic sites are sure to enjoy this small island.
The island has rich historical heritage. The Abbey of St Michael the Archangel founded in the 14th century is its main symbol. It is of great value from an architectural point of view; attention should be paid to rich interior of the abbey. The priceless paintings of Luca Giordano painted in the 17th century are its hallmarks. One of the most interesting paintings is mounted in the ceiling, it illustrates the battle between Lucifer and the archangel.

One of the most popular places for walking is the port area of Procida, the island's capital. You can not only enjoy vessels staying in the port, but also see the beautiful Church of Madonna della Pieta. This small church has been built in the 17th century and has survived to this day in its original form; it holds a statue of the Madonna, the patron saint of sailors. The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which is next to the Plaza of the Martyrs, is the striking monument of Baroque. Many travelers come to these places to enjoy the spectacular scenery, as there is a large panoramic terrace next to the church.
The old fortress of Terra Murata is another attractive place for admiring the scenery. The fortress was built in the 16th century. It’s located on the highest point of the island, so it’s clearly visible from virtually any district. This place is the best for a memorable photo shoot. Climbing the fort also gives a lot of experience, although the height of the mountain is only 91 meters.

Fans of natural attractions won’t be bored too; they should definitely go to the eastern part of the island, which is almost completely occupied by extensive gardens and vineyards. If the beauty of the island won’t seem enough, you can always head to the nearby island of Vivara connected with Procida with a hinged bridge. The whole territory of the island is a unique nature reserve, so that’s the best place to discover diversity of the local flora and fauna. Due to the modest size of the territory, it’s very convenient to explore the island on foot. During the walk you can see amazing residential buildings painted in different colors of the rainbow; they are also considered a clear manifestation of national traditions. Boat trips that will diversify the excursion are popular among tourists.
