Via Krupp, Capri

(750+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Drive
A historic footpath along Capri's coast, Via Krupp is an architectural feat with a nefarious purpose. Officially, German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp said it was built to provide a direct connection between his luxury hotel and his marine biology research vehicle on the water. Later, people discovered that the path actually led to the Grotta di Fra Felice, where the Krupp held wild parties. Krupp was asked to leave Italy in 1902. While the path is now a tourist attraction, it is often closed because of rocks falling from the cliffs. Check the conditions before coming.

  • the road is closed and closed to the public. but worth the detour to the garden as it offers beautiful points of view on the track and on the rocks.

  • In Capri, it is one thing to see the via Krupp on postcards, but another is to look at it in a personal way. It simply leaves without air being spectacular. To achieve their best angles of vision, it is necessary to reach the gardens of Augustus and peek through the end of one of their Rails.

  • Via Krupp was closed in early April 2017 but it still was very cool to see from above. You can take great photos and marvel at it from the Augustus Gardens (just 1 Euro to enter, well worth the vantag...  more »

  • Unfortunately closed. You get a great shot from the augustus garden. I really do hope it reopens again
  • I felt really disappointed when I found out that it is closed. Even though I enjoyed stunning views from Augustus gardens.
  • Don't expect to walk via Krupp. It has been closed for a while and nobody could tell us when it will be open again. It looks interesting from above, hence two stars instead of none.
  • A truly stunning view, I visited in mid-summer so there were many tourists, but it was still a very tranquil and calming experience walking along the winding road down the mountain. For those with young children, the elderly or those sensitive to heat I would recommend walking down and then getting a cab back from Marina Piccola, the walk back can be demanding for some people especially in the heat of summer.
  • This road is the best way to walk down to Marina Piccolo from Capri town. There are numerous switchbacks and you walk down from the public garden to the seashore. Take a cab or bus back. It would be helpful if there were signs marking the way to this path from Capri town. It is an extension of Via Matteotti and Via Certosa.
