The gardens are a great escape to view some beautiful landscapes. There is a large viewing area at the top of the gardens where you can look out on the sea and take awesome pictures.

A must visiting Capri. The best place for amazing photos! Stop off at the lemon slush stand too! Try to go with a guide as they can show you all the famous places and houses.

There are many places in capri marked as 'Viewing Point'. While some may disagree, this was my favorite. If you stay in city center its a short walk. If you get there as they open, you'll have the garden to yourself to enjoy various views.

The walk to the Gardens of Augustus is delightful with gorgeous flowers and the fragrance of the perfume of Capri. The small 1 Euro entrance fee makes sense since the gardens are small. The reason to come is the magnificent view of the Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola and Via Krupp.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of Capri and just slow down and relax. It's what I imagine walking through the Garden of Eden would be like; paradise on earth.

This was a great place to walk once the day-trip crowds had thinned out. Inexpensive, at 1 Euro, with great views of the sea and beautiful gardens.

This was a very small garden, to be called a Botanical Garden. Having said that, the walk to it is pleasant, the views from the garden are lovely. Not a heck of a lot to see here, but worth 1 euro to get in. We went early in the morning and it was not crowded.

Perhaps it was me expecting a larger garden or longer experience, but this garden is very small. It offers a beautiful overhead view of via Krupp, which happened to be closed at the time, but is well manicured and has many beautiful vantage points for pictures.

Views are stunning, but the place is just too crowded. Must be much better experience in early spring or autumn when there are less people
