Belvedere Cannone, Capri

4.8
#13 of 59 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 .

    You have to climb through small paths to reach the belvedere. There are few tourists. The view is fantastic. Ideal for pictures.

    Belvedere cannon is another of magic places that worth visiting Capri: despite being far from the Harbour and involves an uphill walk, not least, the landscape really pays off the effort! Not only you can see the sea, but also the stacks: really nice as well.

    An amazing view. Sweet spot to admire the beauty of the island and the color of the waters of Capri.

Where to stay in Capri

A popular island retreat, Capri offers some of the world's finest seaside lodging options. Most luxury and boutique hotels are located along the water, offering top-notch amenities and access to the best beaches. This tiny island has a big tourist following, which means that in high season even the most economic hotels might cost as much as four- or five-star establishments on the mainland. To avoid the high costs of big chains, consider booking your stay at a traditional B&B farther away from the island's main tourist areas.
