Create an itinerary including Monte Solaro
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.

  • I found it quiet overwhelming, the views are amazing. So glad I ticked it off my bucket list. Chair lift is a quiet ride to take in the views.

  • Staying in Capri, we took the bus to Anacapri and then took the chairlift up to Monte Solaro. The journey takes 13 minutes and you just have to relax and enjoy the view. Each seat takes one person...

  • Very beautifull view. We went there by foot but you can also use chairlift.
  • Worth the money. Amazing views, theres even a bar on the top. Unfortunately the view was very cloudy but you can walk on the path near the clifs for a truly breathtaking experience. Just watch out for the snakes
