Villa Lysis (initially, La Gloriette; today, Villa Fersen) is a villa on Capri built by industrialist and poet Jacques d'Adelswärd-Fersen in 1905. "Dedicated to the youth of love" (dédiée à la jeunesse d'amour), it was Fersen's self-chosen exile from France after a sex scandal involving Parisian schoolboys and nude (or nearly nude) tableaux vivants.

  • The walk to access Villa Lysis was beautiful - good walking shoes required but it was worth it. Scenic route up to the Villa and a great spot for pics.

  • Very nice view there. Very good to rest a bit and to eat your sandwich under a tree
  • Highly recommend, beautiful architecture, so much history. Hike to get there is also perfect.
