This place brought tears to my eyes

Beautiful historic villa with the most incredible views. If you like beautiful gardens with a bit of history and some quite time this is for you. A must when in Capri!

Wonder the grounds, read every plaque and leave time to meander the sun light drenched gardens of Villa San Michele. You'll leave feeling like you personally met the Villa's creator - doctor, writer, philanthropist and animal lover Alex Munthe. Do not rush, leave yourself at least 2 hours, soak this special location in, it's truly magical.

San Michele was the home of Dr . Axel Munthe who was a totally remarkable human and Doctor... he did not bill his patients especially the poor of Capri, Paris and Naples. The wealthy did not get bills and paid for his services .... The practice of medicine was a "holy vocation" The views from the top of Capri ARE... More

Beautiful historic gardens not to be missed. Step back in time and wander around the stunning terraces with views from the top of the island.

This is just off the main square in anacapri. We took the wrong road by going back down the narrow road the bus came up on and took our lives in our hands. Better to walk to the chair lift and take the road exactly opposite this- it is lined by tourist shops but you avoid being hit by crazy... More

This is a lovely place left to us by a very sophisticated fellow. It's among the spots from which to enjoy the spectacular views available on Capri - with the added pleasure of a nice house, gardens, sculpture and mosaics.

You must go to Villa San Michele! The views are unsurpassed as well as the gardens. The villa itself is charming and the Ancient statuary wonderful. Axel Munthe, the owner of the villa was an amazing individual whose book entitled : The Story of Villa San Michele is a must read. There is also a charming bar and restaurant for... More

This is a self tour with a small fee of 7 euros/person. We enjoyed the inside of the building as well as the grounds. Well preserved and maintained. Great to know about the life of a great doctor. TIP: follow the route to the Sphynx. It has some great views.

Decided to put this attraction on our plan mainly because of the views but when we went there found it to be a peaceful oasis with stunning gardens and an interesting history. Thankfully we went in the afternoon and there were very few people about so we could take our time reading the English information boards, taking lots of photos... More
