Check if she is really at the gate of Villa Jovis - it's really a long, long walk there and it should the end of the path. There's another gate that she will pass through that she might mistake to be the 'gate'.

Leeana, It has been awhile ago that I played Capri but this is what I remember. One of the villas needs a key for the gate. Another villa gate, a big doulble door one, is closed when you first get there. Turn around from that gate and go back down the path a ways. Go back to that gate again and it should be open. This is just from recall. Also something about a dog that will let you know if this gate is open or not. Hope this helps. Ta for now. Re

Thanks for replying. The gate she's at is double white in color, its at the end of a path. She hit "jumping to" then Jovis and its at the end of that path is where she is.

She took the wrong path to get to Villa Jovis. That is the wrong gate. Villa Jovis' gate is a grilled gate.
Sounds like she's in Villa Lysis? think
Tell her to look at the map when she walks and she can check where she is going. smile

I'm stretching my brain to remember but I think that when she 'jumps to' - there are 2 paths one on the left and one to the right with a tree close to the start of the path.
She should take the right path and this path then splits in to upper and lower.
The lower path goes to Villa Jovis.

Hi MaG,
We both are looking at the map on the top it says villa jovis but all paths I take to get there takes me to a gate that doesnt open, The gate Im talking about is grilled and white. Also I get at the villa Jovis split where the sign is and still it takes me all over the place. Ill play around with it more and otherwise Ill remove it , Im starting to think that maybe I missed something in the game which is causing the game not to go further.
Thanks for your response, smile

hello, If she is at a white double Iron (rustyish) gate at the end of Via Maiuri street she is at the postcard puzzle and at villa Jovis. I'm wondering if she has the correct key. She should have the key from Costanzo G. BTW, I did use Mags W.T. from gameboomers. I do not remember where I got this key and maybe the hot spot to use it is tricky.?? Oh, please do save often, especally before the timed puzzle once you get through this gate and find all your clues correctly. All I have is a few old notes, and saved games are difficut because there are few save game allotments. Ta for now. Re

Hello, Villa Lysis is wood and greenish or just plain green? Good luck. Re

Thanks alot everyone for your help. smile
I finally got thru !! The gate I was at was the right one , I went back to the walkthrough because I was sure I was missing something , It turns out I never read the villa jovis postcard which had the key to open the gate. It finally worked. I knew I was missing something but didnt know what. Thanks and sorry to be a bother.
