Remains of Villa Jovis

Part of the ruins of Villa Jovis on the Isle of Capri, Italy, the imperial residence of Roman Emperor Tiberius in 27 A.D. The use of flat bricks is the same building method used on houses in Pompeii which was destroyed by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

It took us about an hour to walk upward to Villa Jovis from the main square through the lanes of Capri town.
