Nothing is flat so be prepared to walk up down and up (and up). Around every turn is a new wonderful view. Lots of surprises around every corner. Beware though it is busy, and hilly

We took the bus up to Anacapri and took the stairs down after visiting Villa San Michele. It is worth it for the experience to say you did it. The steps themselves, being as old as they are, are uneven, broken, steep, deep, and narrow....More

We took the stairs after visiting the Villa Axel Munthe to get back to Marina Grande. The view you have when taking the stairs is incredible and definitely makes up for the physical exercise (although we went down so it was not that difficult). I...More

My main questions when reading review were: How painful? - It is hot, particularly in summer months. There are sections of shade but a lot is exposed. The satisfaction of reaching the top and views along the way are worth it! How Long? - 40...More

I took the bus to Anacapri and walked down the Phoenician Steps , all 922 of them . Quite tricky as it had been raining and the steps were steep and deep and slippy . Fantastic views on the way down .

Instead of taking the bus from Anacapri to Marina Grande we went by these steps. So the way went down and it was not difficult, but the views were wonderful.

Just climbed these amazing steps. It’s tough going but well worth it - fantastic views, clean air & bags of exercise. Not to be missed - few make the effort so it’s actually really peaceful. Wear sturdy trainers or waking shoes & bring water. Treat...More

Hi, Sorry, I do not know that there exists a bakery at the bottom of the steps. If there exists one it's very hidden (or most probably it does not exist any more). Best GP
