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.

  • Things I need to do this hike! It starts from piazza Vittoria in Anacapri, delicious by chairlift or by foot. Is the highest point of the island, where you can admire a breathtaking panorama that stretches from the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrento peninsula, the Amalfi coast, and then the Faraglioni and the beautiful blue sea.

  • The island of Capri is well known so that I can bring something new with my comments. Anyway I want to weigh in on what most surprised me. The Faraglioni, the luxury shops, restaurants, wonderful passages, Marina Grande, first point that can be reached and Marina Piccola, shelter of the super-wealthy. Mount Solaro was to my great treasure from which dominate the island: the Faraglioni, the garden of Augustus, Marina Piccola and turquoise green waters of the beaches... To get you take a bus that takes you to the Piazza Vittoria where is the chairlift from the Marina Grande. Price of the ticket €11 round trip. Hours are 9:30 a.m.-17:00 p.m. and the duration of the climb about 12 min. You also have the option of uploading to foot: +-1 hour. At the top you find a square with a fountain and the entire environment is filled with beautiful pink flowers. The view is of 360ª from several terraces. Only by this it is worth spending a day on the island, although I recommend, if you can, spend the night and watch the sunrise. There is also a terrace style chill out where to have a drink and eat or just be. When I say goodbye to this wonder I have in mind a thought: that ready were the Roman EMPERORS!! Absolutely essential.

  • The ascent and descent on the ski lifts to the top of the mount is spectacular. That have come up is the most interesting since, in addition to the height which reaches, you get to be in houses and ascension is the forest a few steps and you can see as well as complicated. Once above you will find a bar, tables and chairs and a few lookouts with beautiful views to the northern part of the island. We are in the highest peak of Capri. There is a small garden and in 30 to 45 minutes you have seen. From there up there are no paths for hiking. By the way does wind up.

  • Great panoramic views of the island. A bit pricey but worth the admission. Whole trip including picture taking about 30-40 mins. A must when in Annacapri
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Best views of Capri. Take the Seggiovia. About 15 min ride.
  • 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
