Ponza Island Day Trip from Rome with Boat Excursion

1. Ponza Island Day Trip from Rome with Boat Excursion

Escape the heat of central Rome, and discover the crystal clear waters, breathtaking views, and relaxing ambiance of Ponza, a tiny Mediterranean island paradise just a few hours from the city. After checking in at the meeting point, board a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle for a quick transfer to the departure port. Here, catch the fast ferry direct to Ponza Island (ferry cost not included and must be paid on the day). Upon arrival, board the boat you'll call home for the day. You'll be greeted aboard by the captain. Then, set off on an itinerary defined by the day’s wind and sea conditions. Whatever the route, you’ll enjoy stops at some of the island's most beautiful grottoes and swimming spots. Famous for its crystal clear waters and stunning cliffs, Ponza is also full of legends that your captain will tell you about as you sail. Visit the grotto of Circe, the sorceress of Homer's “The Odyssey,” who turned Odysseus' men into animals.  Learn the heartbreaking true story of Lucia Rosa, whose name now lives on in one of Ponza's most beautiful swimming areas. When it's time for lunch, the crew will serve a simple but tasty "mariner's style" pasta lunch, prepared in the boat's kitchen. Lunch will be served on deck, with wine and beverages.  After, grab your beach towel and laze on deck as you enjoy the sea breeze. There is plenty to do on board and in the water. Your tour leader will be on hand to cater to your needs. At the end of the day, trade in your sea legs, and enjoy some time to shop on Ponza Island. Explore the typical alleys around the port area, or grab a glass of wine before your ferry departure back to the mainland. Here, a vehicle will be waiting to whisk you back to Rome.

Browse the boutiques filled with world-famous beachwear, have leather sandals made to fit your feet, or enjoy a lunch of local delicacies at a seaside cafe (costs not included).  Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit, as there’s nothing nicer on a summer’s day than a dip in the sea. After you've gotten to know Positano, head back on the boat for a return cruise to Salerno where you’ll catch the train back to Rome.

We decided last minute to book this Ponza excursion and it was an amazing experience we will never forget. Our guide, Gina, was wonderful, informative and took great care of us. I don’t have the words to describe Ponza - other than magically beautiful! Although it was a long all day trip, it was worth it and beyond. I wish we could have had more time in the water and on the island, but know that it isn’t possible given the time restraint due to to travel distance from Rome. That only means we must make a trip back to Ponza and and stay over night. This is a must-do trip that no one who loves islands and swimming is crystal clear blue waters should miss, Thank you so much for such a great experience Gina!!!

Gina was an amazing host! She knew so much about the history of the island and kept us on track so we were able to visit multiple parts of the island. The water was beautiful! Pictures don't do it justice. I highly suggest renting a snorkel set because that was an awesome experience. Overall, it was a great trip.
