Ride to mountain was by a open car through narrow roads.And from there by a chair lift to the top of the mountain.The view from the top is breathtaking,a must visit.Blue waters and white shores of the island with a lot of ancient roman carvings on the pathway.

“A must-do if the weather is clear”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Getting there
Buy a Unico Capri ticket in the ticket office in Marina Grande next to hydrofoil ticket offices , (A daily bus ticket costs €8.60 and includes all travel on buses and the funicular) Catch the Anacapri bus (every 25mins or so) from Marina Grande for a 25- minute hair-raising ride up the “Mamma Mia” road (see pic!) to Piazza Vittoria in Anancapri. The chairlift (seggiovia) is right there at the top of the little square.

The ride
The chairlift operates from 9.30 - 17.30 in summer and costs €10 for a round trip up Mt Solaro, although you can buy a one way ticket for €7 and walk the other way (you choose!). Spend 15 minutes of blissful peace and tranquillity as the single-chair ride gradually reveals more and more of the fabulous views. (NB remove all hats and loose shoes – see pic: we counted at least 6!) Allow at least 30 mins at top, where there is a restaurant and toilets and jaw-dropping views of the island, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. Don’t miss the Roman statue pointing the view, and watch out for the usual friendly lizard.

Warning: not for the faint-hearted!

Tip: Don’t throw your ticket away – I read somewhere that it gives free entry to the Casa Rossa in Anacapri (on Via Orlandi, open May-October, Tuesday-Sunday, but closes for most of the afternoon, usually 3 euros), but we couldn’t try this out as the Casa had closed for siesta until 5pm!

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The most iconic, panoramic view of Capri and mainland Italy! You will not regret taking the cable car all the way to the top of Capri.

“Fantastic views - kids love the chair-lift”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We took a taxi from/to Capri's Marina Grande. I held my 5-yo daughter on my lap going up and down on the chair-lift - she had a great time. The views from the summit are great. Not much to do on top except to relax and enjoy the vistas.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is definitely something to do if the weather is nice. Beautiful views from the top. It is a peaceful ride in a solo seat. The breeze can be a little chilly even on a sunny day. There is the option to hike up or down as well. There is a cafe at the top and lovely panorama views!
