  • So one thing they don't tell you about Capri and Anacapri -- and even places like Sorrento and Positano -- is that because they're so high above sea level, it can be hard to find a lookout point with ...  more »
  • You do not have to climb the stairs, if it is to much, take the bus to the top of Ana-Capri, enjoy the stroll through market, pass by the famous villas and follow the crowd. Just do not forget to stop...  more »

  • We accidentally went up these steps without knowing what they were. Bring your hiking shoes and water. It’s worth the views and you scan skip the bus if you get onto these straight off the ferry. Anacapri is much better than Capri as it’s less busy.
  • Mental walk up if you are anything other than very fit! Walk down not that easy but nothing in comparison to walking up. Views beautiful. Breath gone. Sweated so much had to buy a new t shirt in Anacapri. Girl friend stripped down to underwear as was so dripping in sweat after walk up.... Would I do it again? Of course. Spectacular.
  • Accidentally ended up walking up them from the harbour. It starts easy, it then gets really hard as the steps get bigger and steeper so your bringing your knee to your chest. I crawled up the last few 😂 Make sure you don’t do it in high sun because there is no shade to catch your breath. Obviously with it being an accident we didn’t consider this. The walk down was lovely though.
  • There are SO MANY STEPS. Just when you think you’re almost over, there’s more!! Incredible views and a rewarding walk, just make sure you stay hydrated because you will sweat buckets
  • If walking is your forte, and great conditions and climate bring out the explorer in yoy, I highly recommend walking down the stems from Anacapri to Capri. It is about 25 minutes walk down the same path the Phoenicians walked. The steps are bigger than usual, and the walk up is going to be challenging for anyone pushing the stomach envelope like I am, but walking down is relatively easy, quick and with astonishing views if the sea. A walk down the path of history.
