Villa San Michele displays antiquities from Rome and Egypt, and works as recent as the 20th century.

  • The money best spent the whole holiday? the visit to Munthe's villa San Michele in Anacapri. Maintained in a beautiful, lush flower gardens and relive the emotions that Munthe recounts in his book. Cleanliness, quietness they really do feel good body and soul. Not to be missed

  • In crossing the threshold of villa and admiring the panorama I envied those who once lived there. An enchanted place, beautiful streets of anacapri are already that you walk to get there. The Interior is very stylish but the exterior, with its terrace and garden are lovely. The glimpses of the sea surrounding Capri are worth every euro of the ticket (€8).

  • Stunning views from the quiet lovely garden. In the spring the wisteria on the overhead extended arbor is dreamlike. The interior of the home is so-so, its the gardens and view that are awe inspiring. Incredible.
  • Beautiful beautiful beautiful! The gardens and very pretty and spectacular views. Mostly thou I loved it because it was so peaceful and tranquil. One of the authors wuote about his house is "the soul needs more space than the body" and we all felt calm and relaxed after we left. We even stayed for lunch.
  • It's a magic place with breathtaking views on the Gulf. You will appreciate it especially if you read a book - The Story of San Michele by Dr Axel Munte. Enjoy!
  • Villa San Michele is a must if you are visiting Anacapri. Great architecture and history of the place. The views are breathtaking from the garden/belvedere... don’t forget to see the spyinx.
  • What a great villa. Do yourself a favor and read something about the story of Axel Munthe and his villa on beforehand. It is a great experience to see the villa, the garden and then the extraordinary view. The view alone is worth the entrance fee of 8 Euro. Please be aware that the garden is more colorful in the spring.
