    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).

  • Absolutely fascinating villa built by Alex Munthe. Do find out about the story - it makes what you can see even more interesting. The gardens are beautiful and there is a good cafe with wonderful views of the sapphire blue sea.
  • The most spectacular views I've ever seen. Well worth the ascent.
  • Without any doubt one of the top tourist attractions of the island. Nice house, interior kept as the original and impressive gardens and views. To not miss!
  • Went to the top for the view of the sea from above. Great garden on top as well. Really beautiful
  • OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THIS PLACE! You couldn't possibly find a nicer spot for lunch than this place on the patio overlooking the ocean. Staff were beautifully professional and pleasant. I did not stay overnight, but certainly will next time I have the chance.
