The port of Pozzuoli has a prevalent commercial and tourist connection with the islands of Ischia and Procida (only ferries, except for a daily connection with hydrofoil to Procida).
During the winter there are about 20 daily connections with the island of Ischia, but their number increases during the tourist season (from Easter to October). The same goes for Procida: during the winter months there are about 10 trips a day; during the summer their number increases considerably.
A ferry takes 60 (max. 70 minutes) to reach the island of Ischia; 40 minutes to reach Procida. Any intermediate stop in Procida affects the travel times of the ferries to the island of Ischia (the only hydrofoil to Procida takes 20 minutes to reach the island).

In Pozzuoli the ticket offices of the shipping companies are not located in a single point. Obviously they are all close to the port, concentrated in a few hundred meters:
Near the port of Pozzuoli there are numerous activities: bars, pubs, pizzerias, restaurants where it is possible to stop for a coffee or a meal while waiting to embark for Ischia or Procida. There are also clothing stores, a pharmacy and a newsagent.
Far from the glories of the Roman era, when it was the most important port in the western Mediterranean, the port of Pozzuoli has remained an important hub for tourist and commercial connections with the islands of Ischia and Procida.
Inevitably, many activities have sprung up all around: bars, pizzerias, sandwich bars and restaurants where it's possible to spend some time before embarking. Special mention for the local cuisine, guardian of the maritime tradition of the city. So, fresh fish for a thousand combinations of first and second courses.
The same goes for the nearby Sandro Pertini seafront located beyond the port area. It's the heart of the city nightlife, a privileged meeting place not only for residents but also for the inhabitants of the near municipalities and for tourists.
Tourists are mainly drawn to the archaeological excavations of the city. We suggest only two, those closest to the port: the Flavian Neronian Amphitheater (near the Metro Line 2 station) and the Macellum Tempio di Serapide (the ancient market of Puteoli). The name "Temple of Serapis" is due to the discovery in the mid-18th century of a statue of the Egyptian god.
Last, but not least, the cathedral. The Cathedral Basilica of San Procolo Martire is located in the Rione Terra, a district behind the port. The church, damaged by a fire that broke out in 1964, was only reopened to the public in 2014, half a century after the events. Two external factors make the restoration so long and laborious: the recurring phenomenon of bradyseism and the Irpinia earthquake of 23 November 1980.
