The Romans called the island of Ventotene Pandataria. It was the place of exile for the banished daughter of emperor August, Julia the Elder in 2 BC, as reaction to her excessive adultery, and of Agrippina the elder, grand-niece of Tiberius, in 29 AD.
Ventotene is more suited to those looking for some serious peace and solitude. In the small village and around the roman harbour you will find colourful houses and on the promenade several bars, restaurants and pizzerias.
In the Summer months Ponza is a popular destination for Romans wishing to escape the heat of the capital. Dining on fresh seafood in the pretty pastel coloured buildings that surround the port is particularly popular. The scenic port, which is generally filled with small fishing vessels, is surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bakeries and fishmongers. Swimming in the island's crystal clear waters is also popular and some of the most easily accessible beaches can become quite busy in the summer.
Ponza's close proximity to the Italian capital means that the island has been a popular getaway destination right the way from ancient times to the present day. In Imperial times, the nobility built luxurious villas on the island, exploiting its vistas as they relaxed in swimming pools hewn from rock. After the fall of the Empire, the island was abandoned and was not repopulated until 1734, when Charles III of Spain - at the time southern Italy was ruled by the Bourbon dynasty - founded Porto.
Renting a small boat in Ponza is a particularly good idea if you want to escape the Summer crowds and all you need to do so is an ordinary driving licence. Once you're off after a few brief instructions, you're free to explore the unspoilt coastline and seek out your own private pieces of paradise.
