Roman emperor Tiberius was one of the world's greatest generals, having conquered Pannonia, Dalmatia, Raetia, and temporarily Germania under his 23-year reign. But when he wasn't busy building his empire, he was living the luxe life on his own private fortress villa, named Castiglione, atop the Italian island of Capri. And now it's on the market for a whopping $44.85 million.

The castle-like structure towers 250 meters above sea level and boasts 360-degree views over the island, according to the listing. The main home boasts 6,921 square feet of space and a circular swimming pool overlooking the Mediterranean. The home is flanked by 9.8 acres of garden and endless miles of glistening blue ocean. Definitely one to add to our wish list!

Diletta Spinola of Sotheby's International Realty has the listing. Thanks to our pals at Curbed for the tip!
