Villa Jovis is a unique and unforgettable restaurant on Capri with a sea view which is easy to find, given it has two separate entrances:
From Capri town's famous Piazzetta, you can reach the restaurant by walking just a few meters past the taxi and bus stop to Via Roma n.36.
Otherwise, from the same Piazzetta, take the stairs at the base of the clock tower down to Via Lo Palazzo n.1 and you'll find yourself transported to the captivating atmosphere of ancient Rome!
