Want to take the most unforgettable snapshot of Capri, Italy? This itinerary takes you to the island's highest viewing point: Mount Solaro.

Monte Solaro

Mount Solaro is the highest point on the island - almost 600 meters above sea level - and the point from which the whole of the island of Capri and the entire Bay of Naples can be seen. There are two ways of reaching Mount Solaro: by chairlift or on foot.

The easy option: the chairlift which departs from Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri. Getting to the chairlift is simple: take a bus to Anacapri from Marina Grande or Capri. When the driver calls out "Anacapri", it means you've arrived in Piazza Vittoria. From here, all you need to do is climb up the steps and you'll find the chairlift station.

Chairlift to Mount Solaro- Useful Information

  • March to October: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm
  • November to February: 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
  • Prices: EUR 11 roundtrip, EUR 8 one way
  • Journey time: 12 minutes
  • Children under 7 ride free on their parent's lap.

The chairs on the chairlift are made for a single passenger. There is a safety bar, but it is easily lifted, so we do not recommend riding with very young or very active children on your lap.

Help! I've got vertigo!

The chairlift to Monte Solaro travels at a steady, slow pace and the distance between the seats and the ground below is less than 20 meters, so you shouldn't have any problem during the ride.

The alternative for the more active or for those who suffer from extreme vertigo is to walk up to the summit instead. The uphill path departs from Piazza Vittoria and you can expect to take about an hour to reach the mountain top. Avoid making the climb in the hottest hours of the day and make sure you have a supply of water with you.

Insider tip

The best way to visit Monte Solaro is to take the chair lift on the way up and then come back down on foot, making a short detour to see the valley and Church of Cetrella, a tiny house of worship perched on the rocks and with a breathtaking views of Capri and the sea.
