HOW TO GET TO THE ISLAND
To get the very best out of your stay on Ponza, we recommend not bringing your car onto the island especially when it can involve longer travelling times due to having to use the car ferry and parking can often be very difficult.
You can book your boat crossing on line with a company called OK Ferry.
GETTING AROUND ON THE ISLAND
Once you have reached the island you can hire all sorts of different types of transport from small cars to scooters, boats and dingies, or use the excellent and often entertaining public transport. A bus from the port will cost you 1.20 euros regardless of how far you intend to go, and is 2.40 euros return trip. The buses run regularly every 30 minutes.... and of course you can always walk. There are some beautiful paths, and plenty to explore on foot.
If you take a taxi, all cost around 20 euros. We highly recommend Alex, his name sits proudly on the taxi and he knows exactly where we are.
For more details or help, you can find us on line and the social networks at Sunset Village, Ponza
FAST BOAT (aliscafo) FOR TRAVELLERS ON FOOT
Many people can't wait to get here and choose the hydrofoil or 'aliscafo' which takes about 1 hour for the crossing.
From Rome you can either drive or take the train from Rome Termini to Anzio. If you take the train, one leaves from Rome every hour starting at 5.07 AM. If you go by car, parking will cost you about 10 euros per day. Which ever route you choose to reach Anzio, please organize yourselves to arrive at least 1 hour before boarding. Seating is limited and there are often queues to buy tickets, especially during the months of July and August, and over the weekends.
We have the detailed aliscafo time table at Sunset Village, Ponza to help you organize your trip ahead of time.
By train, get off at the station after Anzio Colonia (the 11th stop), which takes about 1 hour. From the station at Anzio, the port is just a 10 minute walk away and you will find directions to PORTO from the station.
The aliscafo (fast boat) leaves the port regularly from the port to Ponza and you can purchase the tickets either at the port or online. For those of you who don't speak Italian well, ask us for help or buy your ticket at the port. It is then an hour and 10 minute boat ride.
ROME TO FORMIA IF TRAVELLING BY CAR
WITH A CAR:
If you do decide to take your car, the only way onto Ponza is by ferry from Formia. It is a very comfortable and relaxing 2 hour and 30 minute crossing. There are 2 ferries per day, one at 9 am the other at 5 pm.
You can buy your tickets on line. We are unable to give you the link here (those are the Airbnb rules) but you can find us at Sunset Village, Ponza where you will find the information you need. Alternatively, arrive at the port and buy your tickets there but arrive at least 1 hour ahead of time to avoid missing your boat. There are only 2 a day!
If you take the car from Rome, you will take highway A1 to Naples, follow the Green signs (Naples). You will collect a ticket at the toll and drive for about 1 hour until you reach the exit for Cassino.
Pay the toll which is abour 10 euros, then take the first road off of the roundabout (right), to Formia/Gaeta. Follow it to the very end (30 minutes) and it forks to the right onto the coast road. Please pay attention to the speed traps and cameras along this road. They are clearly marked. You are also advised to ignore the way that the Italians drive, they are extremely aggressive drivers. Drive carefully and within the law.
Once on the coast road, follow the sign Rome-Formia-Gaeta- take that road. If the traffic is not too bad, you are about 15 minutes away from the port depending at the time of day.
Traffic circle 1: 2nd exit (straight ahead)
Traffic circle 2: 2nd exit Rome/Gaeta. You will begin to see the sea and the port to your left.
Traffic circle 3: 4th exit will take you along the opposite side of the road you just came down. Folow this road for a short distance and turn right into the Port entrance and follow the signs for the ferry.
YOU MUST ARRIVE 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE FERRY LEAVES FROM FORMIA.

Waking up in Paradise, Ponza ... Enjoying the view. Our home is your home, the heart of which is in the kitchen
The setting was absolutely beautiful with great views of Palmarola island sunsets. We loved sitting at the table on our balcony relaxing with wine and cheese every evening. Gianluca was completely wonderful - very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to help us be comfortable and find our way around. The location is not in the main central area, but is very easy to get to town from. There are a few shops and restaurants nearby, and we really enjoyed being in the quieter part of the island.
This stay was so wonderful, I do not where to start. Even before our trip Susie and Enzo were terrific at responding and were helping us out with how best to get to their apartment. Enzo picked us up at the port of Ponzo and welcomed us warmly with an introduction to the island, their life there and all the necessary information. The apartment itself has jaw-dropping views which makes you believe to be in paradise. The apartment has a huge terrace and garden with a grill for a BBQ. Susie and Enzo were great at communication and helped us out wherever they could - they both are a true insipiration as hosts. A unfortgettable trip!
This was such an amazing experience . Enzo and Susie went so far above any thing we could have ever imagined .. This place was a little piece of heaven .. You need to be in good shape for the adventures and the walking . The bus to the port was convenient . Restaurants near by were very good . We will always be grateful for finding this place and Enzo and Susie
