Amazing views, lush greenery, beautiful flowers.. the garden has it all. Winding paths lead you between statues clad in flora to a stunning panoramic view of the Capri cliff sides and azure water. Rest on the beautifully tiled benches as the trees offer you shade from the midday heat. But try to arrive in the early morning - in the afternoon, the gardens get packed with tourists and it’ll not feel as relaxing as it should.

First, if you go to the website to buy tickets, it says the only way to buy them is ahead of time. This is not correct. There is a ticket office just outside. The walk from the center of town is a bit of a hike so plan accordingly. You can’t get a taxi anywhere close to the entrance. It is a just fee for the views you get. This was my favorite thing we did in Capri. The views of the famous rocks are amazing. You can also see the path that leads down the water. The water color looking out over all the boats is so blue. Well worth a visit.

Some have commented below that these gardens are free, but they certainly were not when we visited last week. However at 1.5 euros it’s well worth the entrance fee and trust me, you cannot get much else for only 1.5 euros on Capri.
Close to the center and a short walk through the narrow lanes from Piazza Umberto the gardens are next to the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, and comprise of a series of panoramic flower-decked terraces overlooking the Faraglioni on one side and the Bay of Marina Piccola and Via Krupp on the other.
Due to the views it provides it is a magnet for the huge number of walking tour groups that come off the ferries and ships docking in Marina Grande, so best visited early morning or evening if you can.

The Giardini di Augusto is easily reached from Capri town. By navigating your way through the labyrinth of alleyways, passing beautiful shops and hotels the footpaths lead to a wider walkway called Via Mattereotti. Walking along here will take you to your destination. It is well signed.
The stroll to reach the gardens is as enjoyable as the gardens themselves.
Entry into the garden is free and visitors can if they wish leave a donation.
The garden is beautifully kept. It has a sense of peace and has a variety of seating areas and plenty of areas of shade.
The views that you discover from the different areas of this garden are simply breathtaking. Each of the views making superb photo opportunities.
This place is definitely worth a visit. Even if you’re relatively short of time on the island like we were, it’s a place you’ll be glad you discovered.

There is an additional price to go into the gardens but it is absolutely worth it for this view. The gardens are really nice and quiet, but you're really there for the view and now the plants.

It is just so beautiful to sit and admire and then take some amazing holiday photos to remind you for years to come.

The gardens are at the end of a path, 10 minutes walk from the main square and well worth the visit (there’s a great granita vendor along the route too!). Free entry which was a surprise as I’d seen suggestions of a €2 charge. The garden is well kept, with lots of various fauna and several statues - the main draw however being the stunning views of l’Faraglioni and Via Krupp. Definitely worth the short walk, you won’t be disappointed.

Just a short walk from the centre of Capri. The gardens are very pretty with fantastic views. Just time your visit we arrived mid-afternoon and it was very crowded with everyone seemingly wanting a selfie of themselves with the stunning background. I gave up trying to get a decent photo there. Gardens we're a little bit more tranquil.

One of the several places we went during our predominantly shop-avoiding visit to Capri. Lovely gardens with wonderful views. Only $1.50/pp entry fee and there is the option to pay with card. From here, you can make the short walk to Il Faraglioni too.

Nice place to see some of the beautiful landscape Capri has to offer. It does not take long time to visit the whole place, but if you want some nice pictures, they can be taken here. From the gardens, you can also see down on the hundreds of boats and ships which have anchored close to the island.

Was very surprised to find the gardens are tiny. You can actually see the whole thing in 10 mins.
Great views of Faraglioni (the famous rock formation of Capri)
5 min walk from the clock tower in Capri town
