The current road retraces the ancient route of the Roman road which from Capodimonte, the limit of the Graeco-Roman staircase, crossed the higher part of the territory of Anacapri to reach the Belvedere overhanging the Tuoro and Limmo creeks. The Limmo creek culminated in Punta Carena and the Lighthouse. Until the last century, fragments of coloured plaster and construction work belonging to a Roman settlement could be seen in this spot.
How to reach:
From Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri, follow Via Caposcuro, close to the chair-lift for Mount Solaro (40 mins.).
