The building agglomeration in Marina di Corricella is similar to very few other examples in the regional area of Naples. The only neighborhood that comes to my mind as comparable to it is the old part of Atrani, a village on the Sorrento peninsula within walking distance of the more famous Amalfi. In both cases, the dwellings are piled on top of each other, so that the roof of one is a terrace for the one above. The stairs wind between the houses, opening a path between the waterfront and the street above (the main street of Procida, connecting the commercial port to the southern end of the island).
Like all human settlements, this too shows a historical evolution. It seems that originally here there were above all natural caves facing the beach, progressively enlarged by the action of the inhabitants, taking advantage of the rather soft nature of the volcanic tuff of the rocky wall. The construction of real houses, leaning against the rock on the west side and equipped with doors, windows and terraces on the east side, was a process that lasted centuries, and only a few years ago it was arrested and, so to speak, crystallized by existing urban planning regulations. An old photo from 1949 - available on the web - shows that even in that relatively recent year, the building fabric was less dense than it is today (and furthermore that the embankment was really tiny, so that the sea almost lapped the most low houses).
However, the actual fruit of this process is extraordinarily picturesque, enhanced by the skilful polychromy of the plasters, among which pink and yellow prevail. Rather than a real urban district, today it appears a fiction, a dreamscape. And of course it's not.

Stunning little harbour full of character, exquisite vistas, archictecture and history. Scenes from movie Il postino filmed here. Delightful restaurants dotted along the sea front offering simple neapolitan cuisine. Fishing boats bobbing in the water and real life going on around you. An absolute must if you come to Procida.

Wonderful Italy, this is the little island of Procida, in Campania, exactly in the Metropolitan area of Napoli.

Procida is stunning and the view of Corricella is even more stunning. To have the best view walk up to Terra Murata or take a bus. Just fantastic!

As you walk down those narrows streets ... you feel more and more captivated ... and once you arrive at the marina di Corricella .. you feel like time has stopped ... I felt like I was part of a painting .. as Everything looks so surrealistic.
Getting here from the port it’s pretty easy ... as you get off the ferry walk to your left towards the church ... at the church you’ll see a narrow street going uphill .. just follow the sign and you’ll get there in no time. Make your to wear a pair comfortable shoe and walking uphill can be hard at times. Specially when you go to the top of the island

Procida is less known than Capri and Ischia but definitely worth a visit. It may even be a better choice if you have a limited amount of time to spend since the boatride is shorter and the island is small enough to be able to walk everywhere. We took the boat from Naples to Procida. There are two different ferry lines, both takes 40 minutes. SNAV was a little cheaper but Caremar has the advantage of a sun deck. The boat arrives to Marina Grande but the real treat is Marina Corricella a short walk from there. It is so pretty! The third harbour is Marina Chiaiolella. It is also very nice and has a great beach (Ciracciello) but even though it didn’t take very long to walk there we had to walk along narrow streets with lots of traffic which isn’t very nice. Choose a bus or rent a bike instead (there are very convenient electric bikes for rent). Even though we had a map we went lost at one point which accidentally led us the most beautiful view: walking from Marina Chiaiolella towards Marina Corricella we took the wrong turn heading for beach Chiaia and walked on a very small path (barely) to the eastern side of the small peninsula Pizzaco. This made it possible see Marina Corricella across the water, an absolute stunning view.

We stayed in Marina Corricella on part of our honeymoon at la Perla Rosa. From our view we could see the entire harbor and the restaurants. The harbor is a place of constant movement- fishing boats going out, day trippers coming in, people walking brought the port. The restaurants are great and there is something for everyone to be had here. The colors of the buildings add to the beauty of the port.
Getting here from Naples is easy- take a ferry from port to port (about 45min) and then walk from Main Port of Procida to Marina Corricella (about 10-15min). You can also take a taxi boat over. A must-see when traveling to Naples or Ischia!!

We chanced on this little Port having accommodation facing the main port on the other side of the hill. But in our brief stay on Procida we came back here again and again just to sit in the cafes down by the boats and have a late afternoon spritz or a leisurely dinner. The quay is so small that only small fishing boats can get in and out so there is an old world calm, very few tourists when we were there (early June). As you sit, cats and pigeons vie for bits of fish at the wharf edge, children play football across the way, the church above rings its bell for the time, a couple of men may be mucking about on boats, a crew drops in one-by-one eventually puttering out to one of the boats in a tender. Where did the rest of the world go? Who cares ... ?

After looking at some of the photos on internet, we just had to add this island to our itinerary. Once we got off the ferry (from Naples), we took a short walk over to this more quiet side of the island. The view is breathtaking just like we imagined. It’s so colorful and beautiful, unlike any other Italian sea villages that I’ve visited before. Added bonus was having a fresh seafood lunch at the harbor next to the fishing boats while enjoying the ocean breeze. Very quiet and relaxing.

The island of Procida is very tiny, but I would recommend it to everyone to visit it. One of the main reason is just to admire from the above the Port of Corricella. Its tiny houses, the colors, the fishermen returning or going out to the sea, the kids playing, the cats,... All of this is pure magic.
