Gardens of AugustusApprox. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Built on the ruins of ancient Roman structures, the Gardens of Augustus once belonged to the villa of Friedrich Alfred Krupp, son of the founder of the great German steelworks, who took up residence in Capri towards the end of the last century. The gardens were later donated to the town of Capri, which renamed them for the Roman emperor. The gardens provide spectacular views of the coast below and the jagged cliffs above. From the gardens, it is possible to either wind down to the beach of follow it beyond to Marina Piccola, a small grouping of houses and restaurants.
