I’d never heard of Axel Munthe until I visited Anacapri.
Munthe was a Swedish physician and the author of several books, among them the international bestseller “The Story of San Michele” – published in 1929.
In Anacapri you will find the Villa San Michele, nowadays a small museum dedicated to Munthe. The villa, according to its website, is “the bearer of Axel Munthe’s thoughts and feelings about beauty and the great questions of life, but at the same time it is open for personal interpretation.”
The garden is extraordinary and in the café I ate exquisite white peaches.
