Monte Di Procida

(3.8/5 based on 130 reviews for 6 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, nightlife
Monte di Procida sits like a beautiful balcony on the tip of the promontory that dips into the Gulf of Naples. It occupies most panoramic post on the peninsula, capturing stupendous seascapes and well-preserved ancient buildings on its perch.The harbor has been an important draw since ancient times, when the Greeks utilized it. It is said that St. Paul passed through here on his way to Rome, to appeal his case to Caesar. It was used as a base for torpedo practice during WWII. Nowadays, the port is still active with fishing fleets who haul in the fresh catch daily, to the anticipation of the appreciation of local customers. It's a breathtaking spot to be at sunset! You can see Sorrento along the coastline and Gaeta across the bay and the islands in the distance. The best beach is called Acquamorta (dead water). The calm locale on the inlet is a popular place in the summer, and rightly so - its magical views are enchanting. The nearby islands look close enough to touch - or at least to swim to!The Cappella Vecchia district is a step back in time. The charming ancient hamlet is loaded with pretty lanes decked out with imperial doors, archways, stone vaults and stairways, borrowing the typical architectural stylings of the island of Procida. Walking through the beautiful cobbled streets, you will find small flights of steps among the houses and buildings; one of these leads to the Church dedicated to the Madonna del Buon Consiglio, a lovely structure with a central nave and two side aisles built in the 19th Century.The splendid Church of the Madonna dell'Assunta in Cielo is located just behind Piazza XXVII Gennaio, fronting the sea and the beautiful island of Procida. The chapel's profile looks like a noble and austere castle, while the fa├žade resembles an ancient temple, bestowed with imposing pillars, arches and a marvelous bell tower. The old town center retains a fantastic Roman necropolis recently brought back to life, with dozens of niches containing urns dating back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC, along with numerous frescoes.
