The natural landscape of Ponza is stunning. The crescent shaped-island, situated in the Pontine Achipelago, is just 5 1/2 miles long. The Island’s rocky volcanic terrain is dotted with small brightly painted villas and harbors, which rise from the bright blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Ponza's history attests to the island's rich beauty. In its imperial age, Ponza provided a refuge for nobility, who were drawn to the stunning vistas and tranquility of the island; it is even rumored that Pontius Pilate once frequented its many grottoes.
The fresh food, warm people, lack of tourists, and incredible scenery make visiting Ponza an unforgettable experience.
