Via Krupp, Capri

(4.1/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • spectacular walk though a bit tiring but you can pretty much do in small tracts pausing to enjoy the view
    View original
  • Worth dedicating a few hours for this ride and do so with much calm because the landscape is a real Marvel. There are some few landings but is made easy.

  • 看到這樣的景色真的只有鬼斧神工可形容,去的時候非常可惜因為有落石暫停步道開放,但是由上往下看已經能體驗它的壯麗,希望有機會能再來Capri,好好的把這條步道走完~!  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.
