PONZA

Ponza is a small and hilly island off the western coast of central Italy, between Rome and Naples. A picturesque and low-key holiday destination, it is popular with Italians, especially Romans or celebrities keeping a medium profile and also visited by a few adventurous foreigners. If you like pretty fishing villages, island atmosphere, boats, the sea, and exploring, Ponza is an ideal stop on a tour of Italy or a base for a relaxing break.

The largest and most varied of the Pontine islands, Ponza is relatively straightforward to reach, but on arrival, it feels a long way away from modern Italy.
In Roman times Ponza was one of the Empire's prison islands, used to house illustrious exiled figures including members of the Imperial family. Later, monks inhabited the island, before repeated raids by Saracens led to its abandonment. In the 18th Century, under Bourbon rule, the island was re-populated with colonists from the island of Ischia.

Interested visitors can seek out several traces of Ponza's history. Unfortunately, as the island's tourism is mostly summer-only and not especially cultural, its heritage is rather neglected and not much of a 'feature' of Ponza's tourism offering. But boat tours will point out the ruins of the Roman clifftop villa, of caves and of an aqueduct running through the cliffs. Adventurous explorers can scramble along a path to see ancient tombs carved into the cliffs, while a visit to the beach can be combined with a dip in an old Roman fish-pond dug in the rock. A Roman tunnel connecting the island's two shores was still used in modern times to access the famous moon-shaped Chiaia di Luna beach, though more recently tunnel and beach have been closed for safety reasons.

Boating is one of the most popular activities with Ponza's annual Italian visitors. You can hire small boats to go fishing, tour the coastline or visit nearby islands. One of the classic Italian island activities is to join an organised boat tour, and Ponza offers a choice of these, including circuits of the island and trips to the smaller islands of Palmarola and Zannone. Palmarola is beautiful and fascinating, its bay thronged with pleasure boats in summer, while Zannone is a nature reserve. Boat tours head out from Ponza for day-long trips including swimming opportunities and pasta on board.

Frontone beach and rock basin Like most Italian islands, Ponza is rocky so don't have many sandy beaches.

Ponza has fairly good ferry connections to the mainland. Most connections are to the port of Formia, a town on the railway line between Rome and Naples, with a few seasonal services to Anzio, Terracina and to Naples (via the islands of Ventotene and Ischia). For most of the year, depending on timetables, the easiest way to reach the island is to fly to Naples or Rome airports. From Naples, unless there is a convenient ferry from Naples on your day of travel, take a bus to Stazione Centrale and a train to Formia. From Rome Fiumicino airport take the Leonardo Express train to Stazione Termini and a train to Formia. The port in Formia is around 10-15 minutes walk downhill from the railway station.
