Built by Roman Emperor Tiberius. Very pleasant walk from Capri (about 1 hour). Lovely panorama of the whole island.

It took a long time to walk up here but well worth it. The views were magnificent and the temple very interesting. We took a double buggy as far as we could before we reached steps. Not recommended unless you are fit. Take water!

We met a herd of Capri goats on the way to the ruin. The goats and the ruin were of about equal interest.

Worth the uphill walk from Capri Town. The view on a clear day is tremendous. The goats were an added bonus.

Response from Cady S | Reviewed this property |
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
