Interesting sites
Please visit the Itinerary Page for more of the best places to visit on your trip.

While you are in Procida take the opportunity to visit the local cultural attractions.
Terra Murata – Is the place in Procida that evokes the most emotions, the walk is a must.  At around 57 miles above sea level, the highest point of the island, Terra Murata is an island on an island. For a long time the historical and cultural centre of the island, it is reachable only by a brisk climb upon which it is possible to admire an unbelievably breathtaking panorama of the whole Gulf of Naples and its Islands.
Marina Corricella – This is not only the most beautiful place in Procida but also one of the most beautiful places in the world. Pink, yellow, white, green and red are the colours that predominate in Corricella, a fishermen’s village built like an amphitheater on the sea and surrounded by nets all around the wharf. Corricella is only reachable by sea or by four stairways that increase the charm of the place. There are no vehicles here, only the voices of the fishermen who mend the nets on the wharf.
Piazza dei Martiri (Semmarézio) – This is the terrace of Procida. A small piazza suspended between sky and sea, a crossroad between Corricella, Marina Grande and Terra Murata. The piazza was witness to one of the most tragic events in the history of the island: the hanging of 16 citizens guilty of having adhered to the Neopolitan Republic.

What to pack

Our years of experience have taught us that extra time planning your wardrobe in advance guarantees a trouble-free holiday. Life aboard a sailing yacht requires some packing strategy.  We recommend the following guidelines to enhance your holiday:

  • Pack clothing that can be layered to be comfortable in the varied conditions you are likely to encounter. 
  • Pack clothing that is multi-purpose and easily washed. Less luggage means less burden. 
  • Soft duffel-type luggage eases storage aboard both the yacht and the aeroplane. 
  • Try not to have check-in baggage at the airport. If you need to pack check-in luggage, make sure it contains less essential items in case it is lost. 
  • Use your Moorings luggage labels to assist in identification by The Moorings or airport personnel. 
  • Non-skid rubber-soled shoes, sunscreen products and insect repellent are a must for life aboard a sailing yacht. 
  • Pack an adequate supply of all prescription medications with a doctor’s permit. The Moorings has a “zero tolerance” policy in regard to illegal drugs. 
  • Remember to take along your travel insurance policy (if applicable.)  In case of an emergency you will need to refer to the claim procedures specified in the policy.
