“Nice visit with a touch of history and beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Enjoyed my visit here. Quick walk through the property enables you to read about Axel Munte and the history of the house. Beautiful views overlooking Capri. Would recommend for the views alone.

“Stunning villa and garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Try and avoid times when there is a large number of day trippers - later in the afternoon is best. Cafe is quite expensive.

“Beautiful views, interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This was the highlight of our day on Capri. Well worth the visit. We took the bus from the harbour up to Ana Capri and wandered around before visiting the museum and gardens. A very special place.
