Spectacular View

Incredible views of the world famous Faraglioni rock formation. Plenty of picture spots, only 1 euro to get in, well worth the cost of admission.

Lovely views from the mountain-top lookout. I was slightly disappointed with the gardens being that it is really more like a small park with a beautiful overlook and a lovely tile park bench. I still recommend it for people visiting Capri to take the walk through town to the gardens.

You can spend as little or as long as you like here. It's a place to stop and take in a piece of Capri history.

This was part of a larger tour. We were given funicular tickets and told to have fun. When we got off at the top behold, the Gardens of Augustus awaited us. Since it was a warmish day, the shade was lovely. The Gardens are public and were donated by the German steel manufacturing tycoon Friedrich Alfred Krupp to Capri. There... More

The first time my wife and I visited the beautiful Island of Capri, we accidentally ended up at the Augustus Gardens and I couldn't believe my eyes of the beauty in front of me. But the beauty was not only the nice feeling of being in such an amazing place, but the incredible view of the Deep turquoise and blue... More

The views from these small gardens are stunning! It's located about a 15 mins easy from the main piazza and very close to Carthusia and Via Krupp. We were in Capri in summers and the flowers were in full bloom. It was a very nice place for relaxing and taking in the views.

The Gardens of Augustus are about 15 minutes away from the centre of Capri and it is definitely worth a visit - especially in spring and summer. A lot of flowers and other plants, burst into blossom! On the other hand, the views - from up there you can see Marina Piccola, Via Krupp, I Faraglioni - are beautiful and... More

Even when crowded, the view-points offered at the Gardens of Augustus are spectacular. Photos of the iconic Via Krupp's hairpin switchback can be taken from here. Also, Il Faraglioni are Breathtakingly beautiful from this vantage point. A must see, inexpensive and worth the time.

This garden area was included as part of our walking tour of Capri. The gardens are well done, but the views of the ocean and rock formations take your breath away!!

I have read and heard about this lovely garden, but was disappointed. Despite it was low season, it was crowded with tourists (yeah, I know, I am one myself) and despite nice views, I had expected more. The reason is probably that I had already enjoyed the stunning views from the mountain top, went up from the Anacapri side of... More
