Monte Solaro, Anacapri

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
The highest point on the island of Capri, Monte Solaro is topped with two significant structures. A statue of Emperor Augustus, the man who first landed on the Capri, depicts a very muscular emperor and is affixed to the side of the mountaintop. The Fortino di Bruto was used as a blockhouse in battles between France and Britain in the 19th century. To reach the summit, use either the Passetiello nature trail or the path that begins at Axel Munthe. Plan to wear lightweight clothing and sturdy walking shoes.

  • One of the best places in Italy. It was difficult to get here, and the weather was pretty hot! However, with hats, sunglasses, and lots of water it can be more comfortable. The view was absolutely bre...  more »
  • I visited the place because blue grotto closed. First I thought it will be a silly "chair lift" journey because it looked so simple. Once arrived on the top it is totally different. We can see the bes...  more »
  • We had several folks tell us that in our limited time we were wasting a lot by taking the lift to the top of the mountain - baloney. DO IT. We took the hydrofoil from Sorrento, caught a bus to Capri, ...  more »

  • This was amazing!! Don't miss this if you are in the area! I've never been above the clouds (aside from being in an airplane). Spectacular views!
  • A wonderful visit on a sunny day. One of the fanciest places to have an afternoon coffee or aperitif. Prices in the cafe are pretty steep, but you pay for the views!
  • Amazing view from the top. In order to get to the top, there is lift chare (8€ per person) that takes about 15 minutes. About the way down- there is a really nice and beautiful road, takes about an hour to the main square of anacapri.
  • The chair lift was well worth it. Breath taking views at the top
  • Great view. Nice bar at the top easy chairlift. Not too high
