The Islands - Capri, Ischia, Procida
It takes few words to describe the islands of the Gulf of Naples: Ischia, already famed by the Romans 2000 years ago for its thermal baths. Capri, world famous as an earthly paradise and not only for its Blue Grotto. Procida, renowned for the elegance of a mundane life, secluded and tranquil in her simple, untamed beauty. It was not a random choice that Massimo Troisi’s film “Il Postino”, was made here, telling about Pablo Neruda’s years of exile in Italy. Ships and ferries link the islands to the mainland, leaving from Salerno, Naples and Sorrento. During the high, tourist season, the “Metrò del Mare” links some Cilentan ports to Capri.
