Don’t miss Via Krupp – this is a historic switchback paved footpath that connects the Charterhouse of San Giacomo and the Gardens of Augustus area with Marina Piccola. You should know that he path covers an elevation difference of about 100 m, and you can see it from above (it is included in one of the photos below).
The etymology of the name “Capri” comes from tle Latin “capraeae” (goats), and the island was inhabited since the Palaeolithic era. Another fun fact is that Caesar Augustus visited it in 29 B.C. And he was the first to build a villa on the island.
