If you are interested in visiting unique, off-the-beaten-path sights on Italy's island of Capri, stop in for a walk through Anacapri's Philosophical Park. This nature reserve and its winding footpaths lined with aphorisms and quotes from Eastern and Western thinkers was designed and curated by the Swedish economist Gunnar Adler-Karlsson.

The Philosophical Park is located at the end of the Migliera, a famous walking trail that skirts sections of wild Mediterranean countryside known as "macchia mediterranea" along its route from the center of town to the spectacular Tuono scenic overlook, one of the island's most breathtaking. From here, you are treated to a sweeping view across the entire south-western coast of Capri.

There is neither ticket window nor guard at the entrance to the park. Once you pass thorugh the gate, take one of the small paths through the park at will, simply following the plain wooden signage.

From the main entrance to the park, you can choose to walk along one of the three routes, each dedicated to a specific theme in philosophy. Along these three routes which climb up the hillside, you can stop to read and ponder the quotes and aphorisms from philosophers and intellectuals from the 7th century BC through the 20th century AD. The quotes give visitors a chance to reflect on some of life's biggest questions surrounded by the peace and serenity of this unique park.

Choose the theme which interests you most, or discover al three!

  • Idealism
  • Realism
  • Wisdom

The Philosophical Park is the perfect place to dedicate a few minutes to quiet meditation, far from the chaos of daily life and the bustle of the more crowded sights on the island of Capri. Find joy and peace in the gorgeous countryside and inside yourself!

You can also linger to listen to a bit of music or read a good book in complete silence, carving out a bit of down time just for you.

Make sure you stop to enjoy the view at the Park's scenic overlook, where you can see from the Faraglioni to the Punta Carena lighthouse, or continue along the path to the Medieval watchtower, owned by Axel Munthe.

Information:
Hours: Closes at sunset
Days: Open every day

If all that reflection has made you hungry, near the entrance to the park you can stop for a meal at the Da Gelsomina alla Migliera restaurant, known for its excellent local cuisine and gorgeous views over the sea and the islands in the Gulf of Naples.
