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.

  • Steep ascend of Chair lift looks scary from the base station. Once on it somehow did not feel the height, the awesome scenery helped too. The scene on the peak was great reward for photo bugs, many angles to keep very busy. Can b very cold on windy winter days.
  • Best views of Capri. Take the Seggiovia. About 15 min ride.
  • An awesome view from the top along with breathtaking photo opportunities. The first time you look over the edge when you get off the gondola and walk up the steps is truly memorable!
  • A truly beautiful day out can be experienced in the island of Capri. Take the gondola to the top and enjoy the magnificent views over the island and the Mediterranean
  • Amazing place to overlook the capri island ocean. Turquoise blue see water is amazing!

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.
