The garden is so beautiful and there is so much to see in Villa San Michele. We visited in the afternoon, almost alone :) stunning views of the Naples Bay Area and the volcano.

The villa provides a great look into the life of Axel Munthe and many of the rooms are maintained as they would have been during his life. The gardens are beautiful and the views from the grounds are stunning! Definitely worth the admission price!

The villa has nothing exceptional but the garden has a beautiful view on the gulf of Capri. Nice if not too crowded

We enjoyed visiting Villa San Michelle; The history of Axel Munte is fascinating and the garden unique - made me want to read 'the story of San Michelle'. We went from 4-5 pm which seemed like the perfect time in order to avoid the crowd.

The mansion and its gardens are exquisite. The views are expansive and beautiful. It was great to escape the crowds on the street and to enter into this sanctuary envisioned and restored by a fascinating physician, writer, humanitarian, nature lover: Alex Munthe. We debated going in but were so glad we did. Treat yourself and enjoy!

Visited last week while staying in Sorrento and visiting Capri for the day. There weren't many visitors when we were there (seen no more than 6 people) and the Villa felt so calm and peaceful compared to the surrounding streets. Stunning views and amazing place to spend and hour or so. Highly recommend.

A wonderful mansion restored in actual configuration by a swedish physician,Alex Munthe in 1887.There is a wonderful big garden,sculptures(even a little sphinx gazing out towards the sea),a tiny creek.From some points you have stunning views of the sea,Marina Grande and Capri town. In my oppinion,a must do in Capri!
