Monte Solaro on the Italian Island of Capri. The city of Capri is in the foreground Monte Solaro, Capri

Monte Solaro (Mount Solaro for us English speaking folk), at 1930 feet (589 meters), is the highest point on the island of Capri. The rocky formation is volcanic in origin and is actually and extension of the Sorrentine peninsula. 

We did make the trip up to the top just around closing time. The little man at the top was not to happy to see us on the way up and his expression made that clear.  Even so, he did give us 15 minutes to roam around the look-out that has been constructed at the upper terminus of the lift.

The spectacular views from the top and the fun ride up on the chair lift made the trip to the top of Mt. Solaro very enjoyable. It's a great way to kill an hour.


Upper Left - View of Mount Solaro from via Tuaro looking west. The domiciles of Capri can be seen in the foreground.

Lower Left - The view from the top of Monte Solaro. The notable rock formation i Faraglione can be seen in the distance. This view from the top is far too large to be captured in a photo, but imagine the stunning 360 degree view of Capri with Naples across the water to the north, Sorrento rising from the bay to the north-east and an uninterrupted stretch of blue horizon and emerald sea to the south.

Lower Right - The chair lift transports its riders from the busy center of Anacapri to the stunning vistas at the top of Monte Solaro, the highest point on the island of Capri, in just a few minutes. It is a fun ride and the view from the top is spectacular.

A view from the top of Mt. Solaro. I Faraglioni, capri's most famous rock formation, can be seen in the distance. The chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro, Capri. Anacapri can be seen below.
