The ferry ride to Caprera is lovely, and the isola is beautiful, but the drive up to the memorial (through the forests) alone is worth the trip. Read a little about Garibaldi before you go, if your h.s. history is rusty.

Garibaldi lived on the island of Caprera after his mercenary life ended. It costs about E7 to go around the house and see his tomb. It's a beautiful spot and very quiet... however, I found the history i was offered a bit lacking in awareness...More

We enjoyed this visit to this memorial to Garibaldi. I didn't know much about him or the history. Another bonus was the view from the site.

very good installation, located in a restored 1st WW fort offering a breathtaking view on the whole archipelago. Good for a one hour visit while roaming through Caprera island

Such an up-to-date way to depict the life and times of this important person in Italian history. Still on on-going project, explanation boards in English to be added. Really enjoyed our visit.

One of the most obvious reasons for travelling to Maddalena Islands is to visit Garibaldi's retreat . We happened to visit on the first Sunday of the month which unbeknown to us is always a free entry day. Unfortunately this meant almost an hour's wait...More

It would be daft to come all the way to Caprera and not visit the house of Garibaldi. Having said that, you'll get more out of the guided tour if you speak Italian as the guide gives only the briefest of versions in English. You...More

Just worth visiting the modest home of such a famous Italian soldier and politician. Easy to get to as the bus from Maddalena takes you direct.
