Really nice walk up to Villa Jovis. Totally worth the €6 to see the ruins (that will add a little mileage here). Nothing compared to Pompeii but interesting, and there's a view from up top that is truly exquisite. There's a place to refill water bottles for a very nominal fee along the way as well. If the shopping and touristy routine on Capri aren't for you this is seriously a great, quick escape.

First to Review

Loved this magical trail up to Villa Jovis. I am a beginner hiker and not in the best shape. I found it steep, but doable going slowly. The flowers, gardens, architecture, and most of all the views make this worth every step. We arrived on a boat tour and were given 4 hours to explore, The hike from Marina Grande took us through Ana Capri and on to the villa. If you are thinking about it... do it. The views are unparalleled.
