I decided to climb these rather than take the bus from the Grande Marina to Anacapri to get to Mounte Solaro. The directions were fairly straight forward. You start out wandering through alleys/roads in neighborhoods. Steep walk. Then you go through the woods on the...More

My husband and I decided to walk down the steps from Anacapri to return to Capri. I'm not particularly fit, but figured going down would be no problem. Boy, was I wrong! Cardio-wise it was completely fine, but I had trouble balancing as the steps...More

Scoring goals is easy if you are Christiano Renaldo; tennis comes easy to Roger Federer; and walking up or down the Scala Fenicia (Phoenician Steps) is easy too if you’re reasonably fit. Take this into account when reading reviews of this attraction and don’t be...More

The stairs are very easy to find. And at first, they look pretty easy. You say, "Oh this ain't too bad. I can do this." But just you wait! Along the way the vistas are spectacular, breathtaking and expansive. There are little rest stops along...More

Turn right at Marina Grande and following the winding road a little way until you see the sign. Google maps helped us find the start. We walked up in half an hour- lovely views en route. We are fit but certainly not athletes. It is...More

We decided to walk to Anacapri rather than take the bus. We had no idea what we were in for! Probably better that way, otherwise we may have chosen not to attempt it! We climbed the 912 steps and although it was hard (we are...More

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

Hi, Sorry, I do not know that there exists a bakery at the bottom of the steps. If there exists one it's very hidden (or most probably it does not exist any more). Best GP
