It took us 30 minutes to walk up to Villa Jovis at a fair pace from the town centre - largely uphill. The ruins really give you an idea of the opulent living quarters that must have existed all those years ago. While clearly ruins...More

Depending on how quickly you walk it takes 40 minutes to a hour to walk here from the town. The route is easy walking, although steep in some parts. You start by walking through the shops, pausing to look at the very expensive things, but...More

To arrive to this very well preserved Roman villa you need to walk a long while from Capri and always uphill so it is very hard work specially in the heat but it is really worthy, well preserved villa, fantastic views and smothered good news...More

This is one of my favorite things we did while visiting Capri. Beautiful old ruins at the top of a hill. Crazy to imagine the history and events that took place here. I would only recommend with audio guide, otherwise, you wouldn’t know what you’re...More

What an amazing view. It was really worthwhile making the walk to villa jovis for a number of reasons. The walk takes you through a residential then semi rural area, the yards and gardens of the houses keep on getting bigger, seeing this side of...More

It's a fairly long walk to get to the site, and the path down to the Lysis villa is demanding, but overall worthwhile. For me there's just not enough reconstruction or other aids such as pictures to enable you to get a true feel for...More

It was a gradual 35 story ascent from the Piazza to the ticket booth at Villa Jovis. An entry fee with audio guide or a map is worth the euros spent. The remains provide an excellent representation of the reticulata structura commonly used by the...More

After a gorgeous hike on a beautiful cloudy day to the top of the hill on Capri, we were surprised to be charged 6 euro each to “tour” the ruins of the Villa Jovis, the once grand digs of Tiberius & Augustus. While the site...More

No, only on a bicycle or motor bike. The road is very narrow.

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
