We walked up the Scala Fenicia to Anacapri. It was good exercise. There is not much else I can say about it.

Incredible views await, and dizzying, vertigo-inducing heights. As thrilling as it is beautiful, it is difficult to stop taking pictures. Frequent stops are required, and a helpful low wall as handrail is thankfully present at all times. As high as the steps are, it only...More

We took the bus up to Anacapri and took the stairs down after visiting Villa San Michele. It is worth it for the experience to say you did it. The steps themselves, being as old as they are, are uneven, broken, steep, deep, and narrow....More

We took the stairs after visiting the Villa Axel Munthe to get back to Marina Grande. The view you have when taking the stairs is incredible and definitely makes up for the physical exercise (although we went down so it was not that difficult). I...More

My main questions when reading review were: How painful? - It is hot, particularly in summer months. There are sections of shade but a lot is exposed. The satisfaction of reaching the top and views along the way are worth it! How Long? - 40...More

Instead of taking the bus back down to the harbor I decided to tackle the steps down, not for the faint hearted as there are nearly 1000 steps. The steps cling to the side of the mountain and provide spectacular views across the island and...More
