We know, we were a bit skeptical about this too, but here’s the story.

Villa Castiglione was, apparently, one of the 12 villas of Tiberius, Roman emperor from 14 AD to 37 AD, its ruins having been found and radically restored many times over the years since first its renovation by Carlo d’Angiò in 1283.

Its setting is pretty good, with with 360° views over the Italian island of Capri.

But the interior,which measures nearly 7,000 sq.ft, is not particularly special.

We do, however, think Tiberius would have approved of the views from the circular swimming pool over the Mediterranean and the Capri’s famous rock formations, the “faraglioni”.
