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.

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...
