Photos of Procida Island

There is an island in the Mediterranean which for centuries has drawn artists, writers and poets. It is said of this island that once you visit you'll never wish to leave. Those who must depart will forever leave a part of their soul here and shall never feel whole again unless they return. 

If you are prepared to lose your heart and soul to this magical island read on and view the photos otherwise I'd suggest you leave now before it's too late.

These photos were shared with us by Susanne Drewes, an important member of our little Facebook community. Susanne spends as much of the year as possible on Procida and she writes as follows about her spring, summer and fall at La Vigna (where she always stays):

"In early spring there is a silence all over the island. In the garden of the Albergo La Vigna vines are still bare. Slowly summer comes and with it the first few tourists. The leaves and grapes on the vines begin to grow, with each day they get bigger and sweeter.

By late August most of the tourists have left the island and one day in September the grape harvest begins. Local folk work hard, but they have much fun and laughter and chatter is everywhere. They know, in November, when the leaves get brown and die, they'll drink the new wine."

Let's begin our journey exploring Procida and remember to click like below or leave a comment after the photos if you've been tempted by Procida's charms.
