Monte Solaro, Anacapri

(4.8/5 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.

  • For lovers of trekking or families with adolescent boys, is a very good program must take the long road and difficile which reaches the top of Mount Solano arrives where the cable car. Also you can do it in telesferivo but I want to tell them that NO ES LO MISMO, and that is worth climbing walking! Let me clarify I lack training and pass the age of 40. THE place is wonderful, full of flowers, silvestrres, helecjos, small lizards and some incredible views! It is a very good program to do with family, with friends or in a group.

  • early April: no queues to visit and a great clear sky which allowed us to see far, even very far. use the small chair lift remains a friendly moment. Once on top the bar lets drink admiring the view, we prefer we ask away and admire the landscape.
