Monte Solaro, Anacapri

4.8
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.

    If you have two hours free, the climb to monte Solaro is one of the things to do in Capri. You arrive by bus towards Anacapri, piazza Vittoria, then chairlift to the top. Eye for those who suffer from Vertigo, is not very high but can be annoying. If you want you can descend on foot, but 40 minutes of trail ... Breathtaking view.

Where to stay in Anacapri

A less expensive alternative to Capri's expensive resorts, Anacapri offers a peaceful setting for a long vacation away from the tourist crowds. The quieter and less explored of the two towns on the island, Anacapri boasts several small hotels with private balconies offering sweeping harbor views. Stay near the compact town center to explore its narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. Surrounded by olive groves and flower gardens, the town's B&Bs offer simple but comfortable rooms, only minutes away from Capri's famous nightlife.
