I walked here on a Saturday morning. It's about a mile and a half from Piazza Umberto, all uphill. The walk seems to deter visitors; I asked the fellow who sold me the ticket and he said they get only a few hundred or so...More

Walked from the port up to Villa Jovis. It can be a maze of alley ways if you don't know your way. There were a few people on the way up asking directions. It was a climb up inclined pathways and steps. It's a great...More

The walk up took us (couple in our 70s) a lot longer than 45 minutes. But it is pleasant and truly not too steep. I have a hip replacement and my husband has arthritis in both knees, but we made it! Plenty of places to...More

It is quite a trek up to the Villa Jovis. Take the walk up to burn of a few calories. 6 Euro entrance. To be honest the information available is practically non existent unlike many sites that have notice boards with a lot of history...More

We did the 45 minute walk to see the Capri countryside but then learned that the Emperor's Villa was built during the time of Christ---wow. Tiberius reigned here then. Hard to imagine. The Romans sure knew engineering. Not an open road a typical Capri "street"...More

Amazing location with breathtaking views. Quite a hike to get up there but there is a great local pizzeria on the way.

This restaurant is situated just before the main square down a few flights of steps. Lots of beautiful trees and vegetation, we were made to feel at home straight away. We had great conversations with one of the older gentlemen who answered all my questions...More

I love the history of the Julio-Claudians and Tiberius in particular, so this was an amazing experience. Massive trek up but so so worth it. We were one of four couples exploring so it was lovely and peaceful. My only complaint was there isn't much...More

This wasn't the top on our Capri list but we ended doing the hike a bit by accident. The walk can be hot and feel a bit long so bring food, sun gear, water and good shoes. It turned out to be a nice way...More

Mostly without cars but on occasion on the way up, it's a mix of sidewalks and streets. And as you'll find out, some large sidewalks are actually roads for tiny cars and motorcycles. Having said that, we saw maybe 5 cars and... More
