Built by Roman Emperor Tiberius. Very pleasant walk from Capri (about 1 hour). Lovely panorama of the whole island.

It took a long time to walk up here but well worth it. The views were magnificent and the temple very interesting. We took a double buggy as far as we could before we reached steps. Not recommended unless you are fit. Take water!
