Monte Solaro, Anacapri

#1 of 20 in Things to do in Anacapri
Mountain Nature / Park
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.

  • The best view of the island of Capri. Access is given by means of a cable car, not recommend for those with fear of heights. There is a snack bar, bathrooms clean and comfortable chairs to take a break and enjoy the magnificent view.

  • Once in Anacapri, we got on with a chairlift monte solaro, the view is great, glorious, from there. There is a coffee-shop, and one time you want, can be the most beautiful pictures from around Capri. All are ahead because it runs long wind, unless they are in the height of summer, I was in May.

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.
