Read his story translated into 53 languages and try not to cry! What an awesome story...the Villa just a part of it, and Axels well deserved reward...set your expectations on zero, read his story, preferably before... and soak up the Doctor to the hypochondriacs of Paris' story...avoid Annacapri past 10am and before 3pm due to Cruise Ships, but revel in...

Wow. The views from the garden are amazing. We were so glad that we didn't give visiting the villa a miss. It really is worth the €7 each. There are loads of interesting items to see both inside and out. From visiting I can now understand why it has been awarded with the best garden in Italy. The villa is... More

The gardens ocean view and architecture have no comparable on the island. A short walk from the Caesar Augustus Hotel.

Villa San Michelle was a relaxing part in an otherwise busy day visiting the Isle of Capri. The museum and gardens are a delightful way to spend an hour, enjoying the story of Alex Munthe and the villa and gardens which he created. The view from parts of the garden out over Naples, Sorrento and Capri is awesome. Although the... More

Worth the visit and the Axel Munthe story is interesting. Beautiful view and not a time consuming activity. On a nice shopping street above Anacapri. Watch out for big groups of tourists though.

This is a worthwhile stop while visiting Anacapri. Small interesting collection in Munthe's "home" but the best part is the garden atmosphere and the beautiful vista (and the sphinx!). Cafe has a tasty selection of appetizers at a good price.

There are mostly shops here and along the way to the ticket office. 7 euro is the ticket price. It will take less than an hour but you have few if any other such choices. I think it was nice and worth doing but overall not that exciting.

Of course we had to go here. As a swede we wanted to see this. But too much fuzz about this home. This was a tourist industry. If you have heard the story that is enough.

House of Axel Munthe, from the middle-later 1800s. Was interesting learning about his life. There are.a few rooms with period furnishing. Check out all the different colored smaller pieces of marble in one floor area. For me the highlights were the gardens and the views down to Marina Grande and across the Bay to Sorrento and Mt. Vesuvius. You can... More
