“Italy as you can only imagine it !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The village of Corricella can best be described as unchanged from 50 or more years ago.

We walked down the narrow street towards the little harbour and were greeted by the view of a fisherman sitting on his boat mending his nets and the sound of children splashing about in the water. It was surreal because you don't think that such places still exist.

Despite being the background for the Oscar winning film "Il Postino", the village has remained natural and unspoilt and we spent a couple of hours just drinking in the atmosphere sitting on the harbour. Bliss !

“Very Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is your first view of Procida when approaching by sea, either by hydrofoil or on a ferry. The buildings along the front, with their many pastel colours, provide a beautiful panorama.

“Like a postcard: marvellous and review Il Postino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Look and enjoy! Try to view it in the evening and during the day.
If you've seen the movie of "Il Postino" you will find it great to be there.

“Picturesque and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We walked along Marina Corricella a few times and loved watching the locals on their boats, mending nets, chatting and made us feel almost like we were spectators to their lives. A unique visit.

“One of the most beautiful places in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

One of the most beautiful places in the world. Lovely multicolor building, life inside is not touristic, despite fisherman's life is not so as it was 40 years ago, but life of locals is natural. We loved to walk and watch kids, playing near boats, cats, sitting on the ropes, seniors on balcony, looking at the sea.
