Villa San Michele - Anacapri

After the Grotta Azzurra, the Museum-House of Villa San Michele is Anacapri's most visited tourist attraction. The villa dates back to the late 19th century, when the Swedish physician, writer and recreational archaeologist, Axel Munthe, adjudicated the site, previously occupied by an ancient roman construction, the perfect place where to build a house in which to display his collection of relics and classical artefacts.

Whilst admiring the many fascinating exhibits on display in the museum, visitors are likely to linger longest before the head of the Medusa, the bust of Emperor Tiberius and the magnificent Egyptian sphinx.

Villa San Michele's beautiful Mediterranean gardens are an integral part of the Museum. This is where both the remains of the ancient Roman villa and the little Medieval Chapel, this latter restored by Munthe in person, can be seen. From its position on the north-eastern slopes of Anacapri, some 327 meters above sea level, Villa San Michele boasts a privileged view point, gazing out across the entire Bay of Naples.

Villa San Michele is open year round.
