Really enjoyed my visit here. Fabulous views and the gardens were spectacular. Just get there early before the masses of day trippers

Such a lovely place to walk through, it was like a sky garden and a museum and a house all combined in one. Beautiful architecture, fascinating man Axel Munthe, and great views looking back to Capri

Definitely worth a visit whilst on Capri. The gardens in particular are beautiful and the views from the terraces of Vila San Michele are breathtaking. Worth going earlier as we had almost the entire place to ourselves which really adds to the beauty and tranquility.

Beautiful villa with very interesting history. It is a short walk from the bus stop at Anacapri.. The villa is very well maintained with interesting displays. The view of the Gardens and Marina from the top is breathtaking.

The highlight of Villa San Michele is the view and the gardens. They are simply breathtaking and well worth the time spent here. Tiberius built 12 villas to honor the 12 Roman gods and this originally was one. The tour of the house, however, is...More
