  PONTINE E FLEGREI ISLANDS
Pontine  Islands:

The Pontine archipelago lies almost in the centre of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in front of the Lazio coastline, and is governed by the Province of Latina. There are two groups of islands: Ponza, Palmarola, Zannone and Gavi to the north-west, Ventotene and Santo Stefano to the south-east. Twenty-two nautical miles separate the two. The Pontine Islands are mainly of volcanic origin. The different chemical characteristics of the rocks give them an unmistakable appearance.
Ponza, Palmarola, Zannone,Isole Pontine Ventotene, Santo Stefano, the small island of Gavi and the solitary rock of la Botte are the most extraordinary group of islands in the Tyrrhenian sea because of the variety of their coastlines, the colours of the rocks, the attractive villages and the small ports in pure Mediterranean style.
Partenopean Islands:
Ischia, Capri, Procida and Vivara: these are the Partenopean Islands in the bay of Naples. To the north of the gulf are situated Ischia, Procida and Vivara, looking toward the "Flegrea" coast (and "Flegree" is their name), while in the south of the gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula, lays Capri. The "Flegree" islands are different from Capri both for their position and for their different geological origins.

Ventotene: the island has a surface area of just 124 hectares and a permanent population of fewer than 500 inhabitants. The Roman era left the most significant traces here. The Romans built a large residential complex, Villa Giulia. They dug the harbour out of the rock; they created the fish pool beneath the lighthouse and they provided the island with large water reservoirs. The urban appearance can be seen in the simply-designed buildings and taste for compositions of great scenographic effect. The zigzag ramp leading from the roman port to the heart of the town symbolises the link between the island’s history ancient and modern.

Santo Stefano:
just over 1 nautical mile from Ventotene is the isle of Santo Stefano. Circular in shape, with a surface area of 28 hectares, its silhouette is dominated by the massive penitentiary built in 1795. It was used until 1965, when it was abandoned as a prison for life prisoners. The totally uninhabited island is popular for excursions and for its wild vegetation.

Ponza:
this is one of the most interesting Mediterranean islands. The general setting and surroundings of Ponza offer a sight that makes landing here delightful and fascinating. The delicate semicircle of pink and white houses around the port, the small cemetery and the island’s silhouette provide visions of touching beauty. Ponza is a narrow and elaborate strip of rock that millennia of stormy seas have corroded and eaten away. The island’s perimeter offers some charming spots: the islet of Gavi, Cala Gaetano, Punta Nera, Cala di Frontone…The sea depths are very various and charming.

Zannone:
this lies approximately 6 miles from Ponza and is an oasis for migratory game. It is one of the few areas to maintain the characteristics of the typical flora and fauna of the Mediterranean almost intact. Zannone is part of the Circeo National Park.

Palmarola:
situated approximately 8 miles from the port of Ponza, it is uninhabited but in summer a few back up and refreshment points are opened.

 
 

Ischia: Ischia is the largest of the Partnopean islands in the bay of Naples. Its volcanic origin is the cause of various seismic phenomena which have continually altered it. They have also produced the salso-iodic and radioactive thermal waters and mudbaths for which the island is renowned all over the world. The volcanic nature of the island has in fact given its inhabitants hundreds of heat source sand sulphureous spring pools, which in turn encouraged the establishment of age old spa facilities. The earth releases its waters and vapours everywhere, regenerating both body and mind. Smooth skin, silky hair, toned muscles, and an extreme sense of well-being: in Ischia this is simple.

Procida: The charming islandIsland of Procida of Procida lies like an undiscovered garden next to its vibrant sister islands Ischia and Capri. Flourishing gardens and fragrant lemon and orange groves bewitch visitors with their lush beauty. Procida is the smallest and oldest island in the Bay of Naples and is, like Ischia, of volcanic origin. The island of Procida is part of an archipelago of islands called the Partenopee, comprising of Procida, Ischia and Capri.The island is situated in the Gulf of Naples, between Ischia and Capo Miseno.r 1 nautical mile from Ventotene is the isle of Santo Stefano. Circular in shape, with a surface area of 28 hectares, its silhouette is dominated by the massive penitentiary built in 1795. It was used until 1965, when it was abandoned as a prison for life prisoners. The totally uninhabited island is popular for excursions and for its wild vegetation.
