What people say

"✏️ Giardini di Augusto were named after the Roman emperor, Octavian Augustus, and the place where the gardens are located was the property of a German industrialist, Friedrich Alfred Krupp. It is a botanical garden which offers a partial overview of the island and from here you can see Mount Solaro, the bay of Marina Picola or the Faraglioni. A truly amazing view is Via Krupp, a stone path built by the same Friedrich Alfred Krupp, to connect Marina Piccola and the center of Capri. 🕘 Opening hours: April, May, June, July, August, September and October: 09:00 am - 8:00 pm November, December, January, February and March: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm 💲 Price: 1.5 euros for adults free for children under 12 Times and prices may vary during the season. You can ask for confirmation at the info points found in Marina Grande or in the Piazzetta."
"My favorite lookout point on the island with stunning views of the surrounding coastline. Via Krupp, the pictured walkway that snakes down the cliff side, is closed to foot traffic because of falling rocks. Ideally, go in the morning or late afternoon when it's less crowded. An easy walk from the Piazzetta in Capri. There is a small entry fee to the garden that I believe was cash only. "
"The Gardens of Augustus are a series of beautiful lookout points with terraced gardens and views of Marina Piccola and the Faraglioni rock formations. Entrance fee is minimal and worth the visit for a quiet stroll through beautiful flora."
