Just 30 minutes by hydrofoil from the Bay of Naples, tucked close to Ischia, the famous playground of southern Italy, lies the almost forgotten island of Procida. Less than 4 sq. kilometers in size, Procida tempts you with it’s colorful houses – like a box of salt water taffy candies. Then it entices you with all the blues, and you are smitten.
If the old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words “ is true, Procida can speak for itself.
And one last lingering look at one of Italy’s most picturesque locations.
Karen Henderson and her husband Michael moved to Venice in 2008 to escape the rat race of their hectic American careers. Karen blogs about their transition to expat life and their daily adventures in Venice on her blog, The Venice Experience.
Concierge tip: Procida is only a few hours by car and ferry boat from Rome. Why not combine a stay in the Eternal city with a quick visit to this enchanting island? Book your stay at Baglioni Hotel Regina and ask your concierge to organise it for you.
