We enjoyed hiking to these limestone caves. Fortunately we had a guide who helped us appreciate what we were seeing. It was nice to step away from the crowds and experience a quieter side of the island.

Once you arrive the views are spectacular. This is a truly gorgeous and romantic. I recommend hiking to it in early morning so you can be back before it gets too hot.

An inland grotto which delves deep into the cliff face. You can enter and enjoy the cool and the peace. Be prepared for a lot of steps to climb down or up in order to get there!

It's a must see when visiting Capri, BUT, you must speak to someone to make sure you walk the correct way down the steps so you don't suffer walking UP them.

To get to this location you can do it the hard way or the preferred way. Either way it's one of the most beautiful walks on Capri. Hard way: You can start at the large terrace viewing point of the Faraglioni and take a pathway (Via Tragara) which traces the southeastern coastline to Via de Pizzolungo. It is a very... More

On the trail from the main center of town. Walking and just smelling all the flowers of Capri are astonishing. Enjoy the hiking and hopefully you make it all the way up to Tiberius palace remains
