Belvedere Cannone, Capri

4.8
#14 of 84 in Things to do in Capri
Surreal turquoise lagoons, steep cliffs, and an uninterrupted view of the ocean unfolds at Belvedere Cannone. Named after a strategic canon placed on the plateau in 1808, the area enjoyed popularity among artists, who would set up an easel and paint the scenery. From this vantage point you can see the stately rocks rising out of the water, a monastery, gardens, a grotto, and an important prehistoric station. Though the journey up to the vantage point isn't long, proper hiking shoes may come in handy. To visit Belvedere Cannone and other attractions in Capri, use our Capri route app .

  • Great views, still much higher than the garden below, is taken with each tourist group. Up here you have his rest, very nice!

  • Is located in Punta Cannon, i.e. just over in fifteen minutes from the Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto I), after passing via Madre Serafina. It is well known, not only as "Mozarthaus", but also as the "square of artists: in the first case for a cannon place by the French in the early 19th century, to defend this part of the island; While in the second case for the numerous German painters who, during the 20th century, were just here for inspiration for their paintings. It is a lovely and unique in the world (perhaps, but it is to me), ideal to take pictures or paint pictures and thus capture a fabulous landscape: from here you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Faraglioni, Marina Piccola, the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, the gardens of Augustus and PuntaTragara. Complemented by a crystal blue sea and the continuous coming and going of boats, boats and luxury yachts.

  • Windy is the Blue Grotto to be cancelled, and explore the island. Views from the Park located on the island, the cliffs view was very nice stuff. Cave Tour was disappointing but good memories now.

  • You have to cross the island to Marina Piccola
  • Nice views, funny staff, Capri prices.
  • Good
