In Capri, Wilde went “to lay some simple flowers on the grave of Tiberius”. Despite the famous tolerance on islanders, the UK customers of the most famous hotel, the Quisisana hotel, received the two lovers very coldly and so the cumbersome writer and his belovedwere sent away. “They denied us even bread” he said laconically. Fortunately a celebrity, the writer and doctor Axel Munthe, invited them to dinner and they were his guests at Villa Lysis, for some days. Along the pathway of the poet and his friend, we visit Capri:from the Piazzetta we walk to Villa Lysis, Wilde’s residence in Capri, andto Villa Jovis, the ruins of Tiberius’ villa. We drive then to Anacapri, to visit Villa San Michele, Axel Munthe’s residence, visited by the English writer andfrom where we can admire the incomparable view of the gulf!
Entrance fee: € 8 Villa San Michele by Axel Munthe + € 2 Villa Lysis (closed on Wednesdays) + € 2 Villa Jovis (closed on Mondays) + free, Villa Astarita (closed Tuesdays)
