How to arrive on Ponza

Arriving on the island

Ponza can be reached by various forms of transport:

- by plane from the airports of Rome and Naples and from there to the embarkation ports by train, taxi, rental car or helicopter;
- by train to Formia or Anzio and from there to the embarkation ports by taxi or on foot (one kilometer);
- by car to the embarkation ports of Formia, Terracina and Anzio.

On the island the circulation of non-resident cars is limited during the summer months. However, we recommend to leave your car in a guarded parking lot near the port of embarkation.

Airport Transfer

Trains, buses, taxis – we understand that getting to Ponza landing in Rome or Naples is not exactly simple and relaxing. To start your holiday in complete relaxation we recommend to book a transfer service with a private car.
In the case of small groups, the choice of private transfer is also convenient from an economic point of view as the cost of train, bus and taxi tickets is equivalent to the cost of a much more comfortable and relaxing private transfer.
