Casa Rosa
This quirky Pompeian red house in Anacapri was built by a Confederate officer who fled the United States after the war. His several archaeological finds from the region and beyond are on display in the house, some built right into the walls. Over the front entrance, embedded in the Byzantine style mosaic, is written a Greek phrase that translates to "Hail Citizens of the Land of Leisure." The house is now a small museum to a collection of early 20th-century oil painting of Capri and Naples. In a corner room on the top floor, you can see some ancient statues that were fished out the Blue Grotto during two different excavations over the over the past few decades.
