A beautiful location set on the very top of Anacapri at the start of the Phoenician steps or Scale Fenice. The views are stunning from the terrace. The Swedish Doctor, Philanthrapist and Humanitarian Axel Munthe was indeed an extremely interesting gentleman, and who I am now interested to read more about. The house is an incredible testament to his incredible... More

This is a beautiful villa in the island of capri. It has an entrance fee in order to get in. It has a nice view and well worth for a visit.

I would have loved to live here. The owner's story is compelling and the decor and villa offers stunning views of Vesuvius. Pick a cruise ship free day (or time) if possible.

I don't know how I had missed this sight on prior visits to the island,but I had somehow. But then I had not somehow gotten up as far as Anni Capri and so got lost and busy below. The place is very small and huge numbers of people tramp through the cite. But still go this is one of those... More

Wonder the grounds, read every plaque and leave time to meander the sun light drenched gardens of Villa San Michele. You'll leave feeling like you personally met the Villa's creator - doctor, writer, philanthropist and animal lover Alex Munthe. Do not rush, leave yourself at least 2 hours, soak this special location in, it's truly magical.

San Michele was the home of Dr . Axel Munthe who was a totally remarkable human and Doctor... he did not bill his patients especially the poor of Capri, Paris and Naples. The wealthy did not get bills and paid for his services .... The practice of medicine was a "holy vocation" The views from the top of Capri ARE... More

This is just off the main square in anacapri. We took the wrong road by going back down the narrow road the bus came up on and took our lives in our hands. Better to walk to the chair lift and take the road exactly opposite this- it is lined by tourist shops but you avoid being hit by crazy... More

This is a lovely place left to us by a very sophisticated fellow. It's among the spots from which to enjoy the spectacular views available on Capri - with the added pleasure of a nice house, gardens, sculpture and mosaics.
