We took the bus up to Anacapri and took the stairs down after visiting Villa San Michele. It is worth it for the experience to say you did it. The steps themselves, being as old as they are, are uneven, broken, steep, deep, and narrow....More

We took the stairs after visiting the Villa Axel Munthe to get back to Marina Grande. The view you have when taking the stairs is incredible and definitely makes up for the physical exercise (although we went down so it was not that difficult). I...More

My main questions when reading review were: How painful? - It is hot, particularly in summer months. There are sections of shade but a lot is exposed. The satisfaction of reaching the top and views along the way are worth it! How Long? - 40...More

Instead of taking the bus back down to the harbor I decided to tackle the steps down, not for the faint hearted as there are nearly 1000 steps. The steps cling to the side of the mountain and provide spectacular views across the island and...More

I took the bus to Anacapri and walked down the Phoenician Steps , all 922 of them . Quite tricky as it had been raining and the steps were steep and deep and slippy . Fantastic views on the way down .

Instead of taking the bus from Anacapri to Marina Grande we went by these steps. So the way went down and it was not difficult, but the views were wonderful.

Just climbed these amazing steps. It’s tough going but well worth it - fantastic views, clean air & bags of exercise. Not to be missed - few make the effort so it’s actually really peaceful. Wear sturdy trainers or waking shoes & bring water. Treat...More

I decided to climb these rather than take the bus from the Grande Marina to Anacapri to get to Mounte Solaro. The directions were fairly straight forward. You start out wandering through alleys/roads in neighborhoods. Steep walk. Then you go through the woods on the...More

Hi, Sorry, I do not know that there exists a bakery at the bottom of the steps. If there exists one it's very hidden (or most probably it does not exist any more). Best GP
