Create an itinerary including Villa Jovis
Built by emperor Tiberius in 27 CE, Villa Jovis is the largest and most lavish villa on the island, spanning eight terraced levels and covering 0.7 hectares (1.7 acres). Explore the mountaintop ruins and imagine the life of the reclusive emperor. Seek out the cliff where, according to rumor, Tiberius used to have people thrown into the sea. The hike up affords many opportunities to take in views of the bays of Naples and Salerno, as well as the islands of Ischia and Procida.

  • Don't go there, it's not worth it. Long walk uphill, you'll loose most of the day. Old ruin, not restored, no plants, no beautiful flowers, like on the other villas. Way too expensive for what it has to offer. Hint: look at pictures before deciding..
  • Absolutely fantastic! The most beautiful place with the loveliest staff. If you’re in Capri, it is a must! Would go back in a heartbeat.
