World's Most Scenic Walks
Capri Town to Belvedere Tragara, Capri, Italy
The Stroll: This one-mile foray begins in bustling Piazza Umberto I and continues along Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via Camerelle to Via Tragara (follow the hand-painted signs). Stunning vistas of the southern coast, dotted with umbrella pines, culminate in a sweeping view of the Faraglioni, three massive rocks rising from the cobalt sea. It’s no wonder Caesar Augustus chose to build Europe’s first villa here in 29 B.C. If you’re feeling energetic, follow the signs to the Arco Naturale (Natural Arch), an additional 30 minutes’ walk up a series of steps.
When to Go: Spring and fall offer mild temperatures and fewer crowds (although you’ll always find crowds).—Donna Heiderstadt
