I was less than interested in going to Capri, but my wife dragged me onto the ferry, so grumblingly, I went to Capri. As we were cruising there, I read in the guidebook about Villa Jovis, and immediately negotiated a deal-- a little bit of shopping and exploring in exchange for a walk through the neighborhoods of Capri to Villa Jovis. It was a pretty hot day, so after stocking up on gellato, we started the walk up to the villa. We had a map we had grabbed from the T.I., but there were lots of signs, so finding our way wasn't too bad. There were lots of shady spots to rest, regular water fountains, and lots of places where we could catch the breeze, so it made a pleasant. We arrived at the Villa, took a brochure, and started through the grounds. The first stop was the cliffs where Tiberius would ask bad guests or poor servants to "step out"-- the water below was brilliantly blue! We walked through the rest of the ruins and marvelled at the level of work and the number of slaves that were required to build this. There were not a lot of signs or descriptions on all of the places we saw, but we were lucky to be near a gentleman who readily described more of what we were seeing.
Only downside is that the hours appear to be limited.
