The former home of Axel Munthe with spectacular gardens.
High-up at the top of the Phoenician Steps is the home of the Swedish physician, author, and scientist Axel Munthe (1857 to 1949).
Take a stroll through the gardens filled to the brim with flower-beds and Roman sculptures. Admire Munthe’s huge collection of ancient Etruscan, Roman, and Egyptian art.
Don’t miss the 3,200-years-old Egyptian Sphinx on a parapet with wonderful views over Sorrento.
