Caesar Augustus          

 Via G.Orlandi, 4 80071 Anacapri (Capri Island) − Italy

Member of Relais & Chateaux

First recorded mention of the Caesar Augustus dates back to the second half of the 19th century: a number of period photos testify to the existence of a certain Villa Bitter, owned by a wealthy German gentleman. In the years that followed, the villa was transformed into an inn offering refreshment to the men building the road between Capri and Anacapri, and to all those walking up the Phoenician Steps which, until the road was completed in 1878, represented the only connection between Anacapriand the rest of the island.

At the start of the 20th century, foreseeing troubled times for the nobility in his home country, Russia's Prince Emmanuel Bulhak, decided to move to Anacapri. A wise move indeed, considering how many of his titled friends ended up as dishwashers in Paris following the October revolution. In Anacapri, Bulhak purchased Villa Bitter and transformed it into a center for art and culture.

Bulhak was the man responsible for placing the statue of Caesar on the terrace.

Guests often ask us why the statue is of Caesar Augustus and not Tiberius who, according to the most accredited historical accounts, was the Emperor of Capri. Well, it transpires that Bulhak was something of an expert in ancient history and supported the theory that it was Augustus, and not his stepson, who made Capri famous.
