The archipelago is the result of volcanic activity and has been inhabited for thousands of years. From the five islands, only Ponza and Ventotene are large enough to offer accommodation and regular ferry connections. The other islands in the archipelago, including the nature reserve of Zannone, can be visited in boat trips from the two larger islands.
Ponza is the largest island and is visited by the majority of tourists, while Ventotene is preferred by those looking for peace and solitude. Swimming and sunbathing, as well as other opportunities, like boating and diving are available on the islands. In the evening, there are several restaurants and bars you can choose from.
