Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Capri / Villa Jovis
Built by emperor Tiberius in 27 CE, Villa Jovis is the largest and most lavish villa on the island, spanning eight terraced levels and covering 0.7 hectares (1.7 acres). Explore the mountaintop ruins and imagine the life of the reclusive emperor. Seek out the cliff where, according to rumor, Tiberius used to have people thrown into the sea. The hike up affords many opportunities to take in views of the bays of Naples and Salerno, as well as the islands of Ischia and Procida.

Villa Jovis Reviews
Amazing place but what a pity the site is not a bit better organised and the staff at the ticket office could care less. more »
Après 500 mètres dans la foule du tourisme de masse, évadez vous en vous rendant au terme d’une promenade de 50 minutes parmi les étroites ruelles de Capri puis au milieu des vergers jusqu’à la villa ... more »After 500 meters in the crowd of mass tourism, escape by going at the end of a 50-minute walk through the narrow alleys of Capri and then through the orchards to villa Jovis, the resort of Emperor Tibere denatured a few (in my opinion) by a chapel without charm and concreted ... but what a view! And what tranquillity! You will be rewarded for your efforts... an alternative route is offered via the Lysia villa... Prefer to take it back if not beware of the vertiginous climb of high steps for a good quarter of an hour
A great site, lot of history and amazing views. Worth the forty minute walk up hill, through tiny streets to get there. You are far from the madding crowd at the port. There's a lovely little bar called Bar Villa Jovis on you way up to it. Recommend you stop there on your way back down for gorgeous sandwiches with a fantastic view over the island.
One the most beautiful places I've ever seen! So much history and beauty. A must see...
