a good thing to take if you want to train your legs, and do some cardio at the same time. it will take you from anacapri (close to the caesar augustus) down to capri, just between the JK palace and the tiberius bath

This is the best way to get from the Marina Grande to Anacapri on foot. It takes about 30 minutes to ascend the steps including short breaks along the way. Anybody with an average fitness level should be able to do this. If not, then...More

I always choose footpaths & stairs over buses or other motorized vehicles and this time it was no different. The Phoenician Steps start right from the main road "Via Marina Grande" and intersect the road again higher up, before reaching Villa San Michele. I would...More

After your visit in Anacapri you have to take the Phoenician steps down to Mariana Grande or Capri Town again. The stairs doesn't take you longer than 40 minutes and the view is spectacular. It's not a attraction for ones with weak knees.

Not easy to go down but absolutely stunning. The views from nearly every spot are marvellous. Good walking shoes are a must.
