Caesar Augustus

Via G. Orlandi 4, Anacapri, Campania, 80071, Italy

Fodor’s Expert Review

A continuing favorite of the Hollywood set, this landmark has long been considered a Caprese paradise thanks to its breathtaking perch atop an Anacapri cliff and the grandeur of its villa, gardens, terraces, and pool. As for accommodations, think chic, charming, and casual: the chairs are plump, the beds are enormous, and the bouquets are fragrant. You won't give a second's thought to decor, however, once you catch sight of the fabled stone terrace and its panorama view of the Bay of Naples or the pool—a jaw-dropping extravaganza nearly levitating 1,000 feet over the sea and easily one of the most glamorous spots on Earth. The owner is a keen gardener and delights in showing guests his English roses and 2-acre vegetable plot. Blissfully distant from Capri Town's crowds, the hotel has a private van to shuttle pampered guests back and forth. The poolside restaurant is open to nonguests, as are the hotel's lovely summer classical and jazz concerts.
