What we will do

The meeting point is the port of Procida. Here we will meet the guide and the rest of the group and after the necessary introductions, our trekking tour on the Phlegrean island will begin.

We will set off along a 4.2 km guided path during which we will reach amaximum height of 90 m above sea level. Right from the start we will find the Church of Santa Maria della Pietà, built in 1760 on the foundations of a pre-existing chapel, founded in 1616 by the island's sailors and, for this reason, known as the Sailors' Church.

From here we move on to one of Procida's landmarks, a real picture postcard. This is the Corricella, a 17th-century harbour renowned for its distinctive architecture of arches, domes, windows, steps, loggias, stairs and pastel-coloured facades.

We will climb up to the castle and continue our journey on the island to Terra Murata, from where we will enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire Gulf of Naples. Once at the top we will find the Palazzo d'Avalos, built in the mid 16th century.

Immediately afterwards we will reach theAbbey of San Michele, the oldest church on the island, built between the 8th and 9th centuries, which over time has undergone multiple architectural stratifications that have made it the imposing complex it is today. After admiring the marvellous view of the sea overlooked by the abbey, we will move on to the lower part of the island and return to the point where we met to end our excursion.

The tour takes about 3 hours, of which 2 hours are on the outward journey and 1 hour on the return.

The tour is simple and open to all, with no age limit, but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
