About Villa Jovis, Capri

A remarkable testament of early roman architecture, Villa Jovis is the largest of twelve Tiberian villas. Emperor Tiberius fell in love with the island of Capri and commissioned 12 villas to be made here. Villa Jovis was the most lavish of these villas, spreading 1.7 acres. The villa boasted of top technology of that time, including a provision for collecting rainwater. The walk up to the villa is exhilarating or even excruciating (depending on your fitness levels) but definitely well worth it because of the magnificent views it offers. The ruins of Villa Jovis were largely uncovered during the 18th century under the reign of Charles of Bourbon, and are relatively well-conserved despite the loss of numerous artifacts, some of which are displayed at the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

Villa Jovis, Capri Reviews

  • It's an invigorating but beautiful walk getting up to the Villa Jovis, one that not many tourist seem to do, at least in August when we were visiting. There was a lot of the "pleasure palace" still to see and it was fun but also horrifying to imagine what it would have been like at the time. You can mostly walk the grounds freely to explore the ruins and enjoy the fantastic views of the sea.

  • Go early and enjoy the ruins by yourself! We arrived around 9 a.m. and enjoyed a sunny stroll through the ruins workout any other tourists. It's an up close and unique look into the past. I loved the cisterns and was stuck by how big they were. $2 euros per person. Don't expect an interactive display or placards (everything's washed out from the sun). Bring your own audio tour or map for historical context. Trail is well marked. Getting there: it's about a 50 minute uphill walk from Umberto I piazza. Signs mark the way. There's one public restroom about 3/4 of the way up and a couple of cafes if you need water (which you really should just plan to bring from the get go). Highly worth it.

  • Beautiful walk but closed despite everything saying it should/is open.

  • A great hike to get to the second highest peak on Capri, then a massive two thousand year old Roman villa to explore plus stunning views over the bay of Naples ...what's better than that? Best to read up on the history of the villa before you go as there is little information once there, there is a 4 EUR entry fee. But I was surprised for a villa "in ruins" there is still quite a lot of big structure remaining to pique your imagination about how awesome it must have looked back in the heyday of the Roman Empire.

  • Great place full of history and greatness! Just a hint, it may be good, in the future to offer some transportaton to the location, those stairs almost exhausted me...
