Villa Jovis is spectacular - easily the best sight we saw on Capri (or Anacapri) over the course of 3 days. It is a hike to get to it, but absolutely worth it. There are goats on the property to keep the grass trimmed. The...More
It's great to get to the top of this mount to the view and the ruins from Tiberius palace. There were goats wandering around the property and it was really beautiful. Worth the walking uphill, even though we are out of shape:)
Villa Jovis is a roman ruin. We actually hiked to it from Villa Lysis-found a trail that took us to Jovis, which made for an adventure but parts of the path could be difficult for some. There is not very much information about the ruins,...More
The entire trip to get here is awesome. Walking to it takes your through many narrow roads that are much less crowded than the main areas down below. The walk is full of awesome views. The villa itself is very impressive. There were not that...More

Armando gave us a warm welcome and an amazing experience via questions and general conversation. The gnocchi sorrento was better than any gnocchi I’ve had in Italy and the swordfish was cooked very well. Location is great. Highly recommend.

Villa Jovis was 6 euros entry fee and you get a free audio guide to provide...More
Villa Jovis was the largest and most sumptuous of 12 Roman villas commissioned by Roman Emperor Tiberius (AD14–37) on Capri, and his main island residence. This was a wonderful site to visit especially if you love your history, and even if you don't the location...More
During our stay on Capri, we visited the ruins of a villa occupied by Emperor Tiberius in the first century, known as Villa Jovis. Most important: be prepared to walk! From the center of the town of Capri, it was a mostly uphill walk along...More
Mostly without cars but on occasion on the way up, it's a mix of sidewalks and streets. And as you'll find out, some large sidewalks are actually roads for tiny cars and motorcycles. Having said that, we saw maybe 5 cars and... More
Mostly without cars but on occasion on the way up, it's a mix of sidewalks and streets. And as you'll find out, some large sidewalks are actually roads for tiny cars and motorcycles. Having said that, we saw maybe 5 cars and 25 people on our walk from the edge of town upward. It's peaceful.
