This was included in our tour package and we debated about actually viewing the Villa but are so glad we did. The views from the upper look out are amazing and the gardens were beautiful and relaxing. It was an hour well spent and there...More

It was my second visit and it’s just a small museum, but that’s partly why I love it. That, and I’m fascinated by Axel Munthe and his love for animals.

Not to be missed in Anacapri- most beautiful views of Capri. You can take the steps down to the marina area ( 1+ mile).

Previously owned by a famous Swedish sculpture and animal rights activist, this Villa/Museum has some nice pieces of art and spectacular views. Even a little cafe.

If you are in Anacapri this villa should not be missed. It was built around the turn of the 19th century by the Swedish physician and author Axel Munthe. A Gem!

This Villa is at the very best place in Anacapri and should not be missed. The history of how it came to be is fascinating. The views are astounding, and the gardens make you want to live here for the rest of your life!

It was a wonderful surprise to find this so uncrowded and unspoiled. Very worth the modest entrance for the beautiful gardens, paths overlooking the sea 1000 feet below, and a small but wonderful collection of Roman sculpture. The cafe has an equally stunning view, but...More

You CAN walk back to capri center but better not to do it. I wouldn´t! Take a cab. It is just 18-20 euros and you certainly will not regret it (if you don´t mind the price), beacuse Capri taxis without roofs are so fun... More

Ditto! A very nice stroll to get there, a few steps in the house and in the garden but nothing worth noting. Don't miss it!
