“Lovely Gardens and the VIEWS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Lovely garden walks, not very large, but with awe-inspiring views of the southern Capri coast. Somewhat crowded the afternoon in early September that we were there, BUT nothing like the masses that crowded the streets of Capri town in the afternoons. A nice respite.

“Easy To Reach Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

There are certainly better views on Capri (Belvedere Cannone, Anacapri Chairlift, etc.), but Garden of Augustus is a few minutes pretty flat walk from Capri's Town Center and it offers a nice garden and view of I Faraglioni and Marina Piccola.

“Good view.... thats about it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I feel better knowing it only cost 1 EUR to get in, but really it is just a small path up to a look out point that is a little over rated!

However the view is beautiful.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Well worth the walk and 1Euro admission. Amazing view of the rocks below in the ocean. The gardens are very pretty and the ambience peaceful.

“Smaller than I anticipated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The garden area that you pay to visit is smaller than what I had aniticpated and after visiting the gardens at Axel Munte House somewhat disappointing. The views are spectacular especially of the Via Krupp. Focus is mostly on the little fountain.
