Where to stay in Anacapri

A less expensive alternative to Capri's expensive resorts, Anacapri offers a peaceful setting for a long vacation away from the tourist crowds. The quieter and less explored of the two towns on the island, Anacapri boasts several small hotels with private balconies offering sweeping harbor views. Stay near the compact town center to explore its narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. Surrounded by olive groves and flower gardens, the town's B&Bs offer simple but comfortable rooms, only minutes away from Capri's famous nightlife.

  • 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.
