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

While the walk to the gardens is not for the faint of heart (lots of ups and downs on windy, narrow roads), the experience at the end of the path is breathtaking. This has to be the best place to take photos on the island (although the entire island is magical to begin with). This is a wonderful place to... More

The Gardens of Augustus is a great location to visit while on the Island of Capri. Depending on your pace, it is a 5-10 minute scenic walk from the main square. The gardens are lovely and the view of the Bay is awesome. This is a great photo stop. There is a restroom nearby (a small fee to use).

I am sure this would have been much nicer in the spring time with the flowers blooming, but not so much in late November. Great location though with good views of the island.

It was a trip that will never be forgotten. The views were amazing. So much color and variations in flowers. The gardens were larger than life. It is a beautiful walk around the isle of Capri and so very worth the while to see these gardens. Also worth seeing is the perfumery along the way. The whole experience was very... More
