I did this trip in November 2014, on a windy day, else it would hav been very hot. The track starting at Belvedere di Migliera was rough, and sometimes just seems to disappear, but I managed to find it a bit later on. Great view along the track. Need to use my hands a couple of times, else had to... More

We climbed this "mountain'' which has 589 m following a narrow path that goes under the cable car. The view from the top is absolutely fantastic.

The posh shops and the bustling little cafes are great - but, if you are in Ana Capri, the chair lift to the peak of the island is a must. For 10 euros you spend thirteen quiet minutes blissfully sitting alone, being whisked first over gardens, then the open mountainside, with just the rhythmic sound of the cable support wheels...

To get here we took the lift and was able to go over olive trees and gardens to the top. Once there the views are spectacular. This island is worth the time and money to see. The tide was up so we weren't able to see the blue grotto, but taking the ferry you could see grottos and they were... More

If you make your way up to Anacapri, I strongly suggest riding to the top of Mount Solaro. A roundtrip ticket on the lift is 10 euros and a single ride up is 7.50. We were pressed for time and chose the roundtrip. You find the chairlift adjacent to the little piazza in Anacapri. It is a casual ride up... More

A single chair ride to the highest point on the island with AMAZING views. I'm not crazy about heights, but this ride wasn't too scary, and very worth it!

If heights bother you don't go, you will not like the chair lift. Other than that be sure to visit if you visit Anacapri. I would even suggest you make the trip from Capri.

A beautiful view after a fun chairlift ride! Can't wait to see it again! We did hike down from the mountain and it was peaceful and great exercise.

Considering I don't like heights I managed to get myself on a single chair lift up to the top, that was scary enough for me! When I got to the top I nearly passed out, the views were simply stunning but it is sooooo high! I went to the bar and had a strong drink before coming back down!! Definitely... More

We enjoyed riding up the lift and were rewarded with an amazing view of the island and the bay of Naples. You really get a sense of how Capri is unique and like a fortress from high above
