Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Capri / Belvedere Cannone
Surreal turquoise lagoons, steep cliffs, and an uninterrupted view of the ocean unfolds at Belvedere Cannone. Named after a strategic canon placed on the plateau in 1808, the area enjoyed popularity among artists, who would set up an easel and paint the scenery. From this vantage point you can see the stately rocks rising out of the water, a monastery, gardens, a grotto, and an important prehistoric station. Though the journey up to the vantage point isn't long, proper hiking shoes may come in handy. To visit Belvedere Cannone and other attractions in Capri, use our Capri route app.
Belvedere Cannone reviews
This is a great spot to get a beautiful view of the far side of the island. It's maybe a 15 minute walk up, but was nice and shady most of the way when we did it at about 330 in the afternoon and it was well worth the walk. It's not hard to find once you find the right path as it is signposted. To find the start of the path go up the steps from Piazza Umberto and then up the steps again past the church. You will see a sign as pictured on the wall and can follow the path from there.
Enjoy the walking experience with Nice view changed every 10 minues. The garden is super view position. The sea water color is splendid.
