Pontine Islands

The Pontine Islands are an archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the west coast of Italy. There are only two islands large enough to offer accommodation possibilities and regular ferry connections: Ponza and Ventotene. The other islands, Palmarola, Zannone, Gavi and Santo Stefano can be visited in boat trips from the two larger islands. The main tourist destination is Ponza. The island offers superb swimming experiences, ideal for those who hire boats. Ventotene is smaller and more suited to those looking for peace and tranquillity. Ventotene and Ponza have several archaeological sites; the Emperor Augustus exiled his embarrassing daughter Julia to Ventotene and Nero later did the same with his wife Octavia. Over the centuries many other notable exiles arrived on the Pontine islands, including the early saint Flavia Domitilla, Sandro Pertini and Mussolini.
