To know more about your boat trip...

One of the streets that connect Marina Grande with the city consists of stone steps of medieval flavor, at the end of which you go through the arch of the charming door. Until the 15th century, the door of the Marina Grande was probably the only access to the city from the sea (north-west side). The village is now a pretty cove with the characteristic fishing village, a narrow beach and bathing establishments. Today we still celebrate the feast of St.Anne on 26th July animated by the glow of fireworks that explode on the sea. Here, on the first Sunday after the 26th July, the day of St.Anne, a characteristic folk festival was already celebrated in ancient times, which lasted all night. The boats arrived at the Marina to taste typical local dishes on board, but also on land the festival took place with folk songs and dances. Even today, the feast of St.Anne is celebrated here, animated by the glow and noise of fireworks that explode on the sea, attracting a large and participating audience. The fishermen of the village of Marina Grande, belonging to the Confraternity of San Giovanni in Fontibus, built here the Church of St.Anne and dedicated it to the Saint.
