We were advised to visit the villa by the hotel staff. So happy that they did. The villa would make an amazing home, and it was nice to imagine how life would have been there. It's owner was an interesting man and you can read all about his life there. The view of the Marina Grande is spectacular from here.

This is a must see when you visit Capri - you can take a bus, taxi (faster) up to Anacapri the road is enough to remind you not to drive in Italy and let others do it for you. A beautiful views of the port in Capri, lovely gardens and just a nice quick visit for photos. Then head off... More

We had some information about the villa beforehand but not much. It was truly amazing experience to visit to place and read about Axel Munthe. Magnificent views also!

We initially decided not to pay the 7 Euro entrance fee but, having read the reviews, changed our minds the next day; boy were we glad we did. The house and it's history are interesting but the gardens are simply stunning. Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in Anacapri.

This mansion in Anacapri was built by the Doctor Axel Munthe. It's a nice house to walk thru with some really nice artwork and mosaics. It has beautiful views of the island and some nice gardens. Not a must see but nice to visit if you have the time.

Don't miss this - the villa is gorgeous, and the views are sensational. It's a lovely walk around the grounds. The history of Axel Munthe and his various interests is quite something.

The donor was an eccentric art collector, so the art isn't that good. But the older luxury villa is interesting to see. The garden is cool and attractive, but not an important "Public Garden." We were lucky enough to hear a rehearsal of an a capella Bach group in the free-standing tiny chapel. The Villa's concert series is locally famous,... More

Beautiful villa on the top of Capri island with magic views, nice garden with works of art dating from ancient Egypt and lot of philosophical thoughts, built by Axel Munthe, We took a tour and were disappointed by running around and missing interesting information, written in every room. I recommend to take a taxy (Cabriolet for 25Eur) and enjoy walking... More
