“Krupp is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Loved the view and the scent of the trees mixed with the one of the sea. It a great experience to walk down from Capri piazzetta to Marina Piccola.

“A truly breathtaking view on a truly beautiful island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I wanted to review the whole of Capri but there is no option to do this so I'm going to review Capri as an island and Via Krupp here instead.
Me and my boyfriend visited the island of Capri on an excursion booked with our hotel whilst on holiday in Sorrento last week and it was worth every penny.
We were left to explore the island for a few hours when we first arrived and were advised to visit the main town high in the hills above the marina where we initially left the boat. But we made the mistake of walking up the steps to the town accessed from the marina; Here is a huge hint,

DO NOT WALK UP THE STEPS!!

The steps are very very steep and seem to go on forever especially when its so hot outside. There is a train station on the harbour which takes you to the town for 1.80Euro return and in hindsight we really wish we had used it!!
The main town of Capri was not very exciting in my honest opinion; the shops are very posh and everything, including food and drink, is very overpriced. We decided to avoid the shops and explore the town properly on foot and discovered that if you continue to walk across the town to the other side of the island then you will come to Via Krupp. Its access is via a long path surrounded by trees and past the infamous Capri perfumeries. At the end of the path is a small hut with gardens visible in the distance so although we had absolutely no idea what we were going to see we decided to pay the 1Euro entry fee to the people in the hut as I felt we had nothing to lose and we couldnt have made a better decision all holiday.
You walk through beautiful gardens with sculptures and water fountains and then you notice the view. It was breathtaking; a beautiful shimmering blue sea and enormous steep cliff edges with the road known as Via Krupp sweeping right down to the bottom and a small village visible in the distance. We didn't make the walk down Via Krupp though as we weren't sure how long it would take and where we would end up.
You literally just couldn't take enough photos from the top because the view was so amazing in every direction. We loved it; it was our favourite part of the island of Capri by far. I could have sat there all day just looking out at the sea so if you visit Capri then you must visit this area.
The rest of Capri town was less than average; overpriced, full of tourists, not very exciting to look at but it is still worth a visit.
If you get a chance to go on a boat trip around the island then I cant recommend it enough. The views all around it are wonderful and the white and green grottos are beautiful. The blue grotto is unfortunately always busy this time of year and very overpriced so our boat didn't go in it although I don't feel that I missed out as you are only in it for a few minutes before you have to leave again anyway and its 12.50 Euros per person to do that! We spent the hours that we would have spent sitting in the queue to go into the blue grotto (up to three hours during peak summer periods) swimming in the crystal clear open sea so that was far more valuable and memorable in my opinion!
So overall do not expect much from the main shopping area of Capri or expect to find any cheap places to eat. But definitely make the walk to the other side of the town and pay the 1 Euro entry fee to the gardens so you can see the stunning views. Definitely take your camera with you, use the train to access the town, bring your swimming gear with you and go for a boat trip if you can. You will not be disappointed by Capri as the views and scenery outweigh every other negative of the island!

“8th Wonder of the World (though man-made)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We went here last July and it was the single-most thing I was looking forward to visiting on our trip to Rome and Capri; I was definitely not let down! The walk down was absolutely breath-taking, and I went at around 5-6PM when the sun was on the other side of the island. The walk takes 30-45 minutes, and at the bottom you are in the beautiful village of Marina Piccola, where you can take a swim, get a snack, and catch the bus back up to Capri/Anacapri.

Imagine building this place and actually living here - lovely walk from the main piazza - worth every minute - also visit the perfume/fragrance shops!

“Beautiful walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The walk down Via Krupp offers picturesque views. It's a must-do when you visit Capri.

Bring shoes you can walk with (you don't need real walking shoes, but your feet will hurt when you wear slippers) and bring your camera.

By the way, when you walk from the Piazza Umberto I to Via Krupp, you will pass a stall where you can buy a lemon or orange slush (€3,5 for a cup, the large one is more expensive). Buy one when you return. The cold drink will taste as if you entered heaven.
