Built in the 20th century by Friedrich Alfred Krupp who dreamed of building an ambitious mansion, the Garden of Augustus have incredible vantage points and boast of beautiful flowers that add to the awe inspiring beauty of the location. The gardens were donated to Capri after Krupp died in 1902. Via Krupp is another brilliant feature of these gardens which is actually a zig zag path that leads to the sea. The road with its winding hairpins turns is considered to be a work of art and an engineering feat. Dahlias and Germaniums circle a glorious fountain that take a place of pride in the garden. Visitors can experience the great views where to the left are the imposing Faraglioni while to the right is Marina Piccola and the sheer cliffs that lead up to the summit of Mount Solaro, the highest point on the island.

  • I was in Naples and a bit tired of pizza. It was a good find. Great take away sushi place. The sushi was made on the moment. The salmon and prawn tasted very fresh. It has been a long time that I ate such a good one. Hight recommended!

  • Fairly small gardens with beautiful views. A nice spot to sit and cool down for a moment. I was surprised that there was a small admission charge.

  • Breathtaking views. Take a deep breath when you go there because there are so many scents everywhere!

  • It is a small but beautiful garden costing a couple euros to enter. More importantly, it has beautiful views of the nearby coast. It's quite high and provides great shots of the cliffs and rock formations nearby. There are several seating areas, however, they do not allow eating within the park though some people ignore that. Definitely recommended.

  • 1 euro entry fee to the garden, which is beautiful in it self, however you go for the breathtaking views. It is also naturally shaded by trees so it's an amazing way to eat out of the hot sun for awhile
