Villa Paradiso is situated on the slopes of Monte San Michele, just above Capri's legendary Piazzetta. The Piazzetta, which is at the heart of the island's glamorous social whirl, is a 15-minute stroll away from the villa and can be reached via the panoramic Via Sopramonte. The Piazzetta is also close to the main bus stop, taxi stand and funicular railway and is only a short walk away from sights such as the Gardens of Augustus, the Tragara viewing point and Via Krupp.
The island of Capri, situated five kilometres from the Bay of Naples in southern Italy, has been a celebrated beauty spot since Roman times and continues to be a popular tourist spot due to the combination of its natural coastal beauty, attractive towns and great restaurants and shops. Take a leisurely stroll through the historic center of Capri; take a boat trip and explore the island's unique coastline with its hidden caves and secluded beaches; take a tour of the ruins of Emperor Tiberius' imposing Villa Jovis, a journey by chairlift up to the summit of Mount Solaro or a walk along the lanes of Anacapri as far as the Migliera viewpoint – the island of Capri's incredibly varied and breathtaking town, its coast and its landscapes never fail to captivate the visitor.
