VISIT THE ISLAND THAT’S LOVED BY CELEBRITIES, HOMER, AND EVEN THE GODS THEMSELVES!
Everyone’s searching for some kind of paradise. - That is, unless you’ve already found it….
And now… you have.
The Island of Ponza can’t really be described in one little blurb. You just have to see it for yourself.
That way, you’ll truly appreciate and understand why this idyllic island paradise is a go-to destination for movie stars, musical icons, and anybody who wants to spend a little time in a heaven.
Natural stone archways and land-bridges, crystal clear waters, and iconic blue grottoes are just a few reasons why legends like Jacque Cousteau and his fictional counterpart (Steve Zissou for Wes Anderson’s Life Aquatic) spent so much time in Ponza. - It’s a pristine natural paradise for you to enjoy, and a ‘bragging rights’ way to top off your Italian adventure!
Circe herself is even said to winter on the Island in the cave where she seduced Odysseus and kept him under a spell for a year. - And if it’s good enough for the gods (and goddesses)... well...
Anyway. - This is the day trip to book if you want to have the time and perspective you need to enjoy the paradise of Ponza! - After starting out of Rome early in the morning, you’ll find yourself on a delightful boat to get you to the Island. - That should give you about an hour and a half to get ready or take an early nap...
Once there, you’ll board up again! - But this time, you’ll be in the trusted company of a small touring crew that are total Ponza pros! - Together, you’ll circumnavigate the entire island, and see everything there is to see (from the water).
You’ll be snorkeling (don’t worry if you don’t have equipment, you can buy some the day of at the meeting point), sightseeing, gazing at natural archways and beaches, and so much more. - Remember, this is paradise… it’s hard to tell you anything, you’re gonna have to see it to know...
But apart from simply enjoying the scenery, and doing a little sea-bed exploring for yourself… You get to really ‘dive’ into the Mediterranean lifestyle, and see the timelessly beautiful play of nature and culture for yourself!
Lunch on the boat is always a big deal too. - There’ll be a hand-prepared meal for you and other guests, which will include all the Italian necessities like wine and great pasta.
So this time… Write your own movie! - And set it in Ponza for a day. With a little bit of paradise, you feel like a star too.
