The Port of Ponza
As almost always happens to small islands, the port is the natural center of the area. Ponza is no exception. The work, commissioned by Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, over the centuries has proved decisive not only for fishing, but also for the tourism that led the development of the island after the Second World War.
The average travel time of the ferries and hydrofoils that connect Ponza with Formia all year round, and seasonally with Terracina, Anzio, San Felice Circeo, Naples, Ventotene and Casamicciola Terme (Ischia Island), varies between 1h and 2h30 minutes approx. Obviously, during the tourist season the maritime connections increase progressively, reaching the peak in the summer months.
In addition to ferries and scheduled hydrofoils, the port of Ponza also hosts many pleasure boats, not to mention the yachts and megayachts that lick the coast of the island in summer, always loved by celebrities and personalities of the international star system.
