Expert review of Villa San Michele Museum
Axel Munthe came to Capri in 1876 as a young man. When he found a little peasant cottage and ruined chapel on a clifftop at the top of the Scale Fenicia he decided that he would turn them into a 'place for the soul'. As well as being a beautiful place full of light, it also houses Munthe's collection of art, archeological treasures and a sphinx that looks out over the sea. The views from the terrace are spectacular. There are also summer concerts held here.
Admission is 6 euros. Concerts and cultural events are held in the evenings in the chapel or the gardens of the villa, with tickets costing around 15 euros (5 euros for under-18s and students).
