This is definitely a must do. If you wait later in the day, there are less tourists. It's a short trip up and the views are spectacular.

I like to visit the highest point in an area, especially when there are such stunning views as you get from the top of Mount Solaro. The walk through the forest to the summit is fairly straight forward although it is quite steep at the beginning and again at the end. Due to a knee injury I decided to walk... More

The chair ride is nice and slow, just remember to aim your rear end at the seat as it comes around for a smooth takeoff. The view at the top is simply amazing.

The chairlift was nerveracking but the view is to die for....well worth it! Hold on to your belongings tightly on the chairlift, if you drop something wave it bye bye.

The chairlift to Mount Solaro is a must. The 12-minute ride there is one of the most peaceful and relaxing experiences I have ever had. Getting there is neat; the return ride even better. The views and facilities in between rides are outstanding.

Stunning open panoramic views. Choose a fine day if possible and go early. Views fabulous. Go up chair lift and walk down taking the route via Cetrella for more spectacular views and points of interest.

Be sure to get here in time to watch the sunset on your way back down. A quiet hike - we never saw anyone else the whole time we were walking. Path was pretty rustic, but beautiful views.

I would absolutely recommend doing this excursion if you visit Capri and then have dinner at Da Gelsomina. The views are panoramic and the chair lift ride up is very cool. However it is not the safest since there is only a flimsy wooden bar protecting you from falling out.

We opted to take the chairlift up and walk down - this is highly recommended and helps extend the experience of being up high with the beautiful Capri scenery on all sides. It was unique being on single chairlifts too!
