“beautiful stunning views as far as the eye can see”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I took this one person seat chair lift to the top of Mount Solaro. I am a little afraid of heights so at first I was a little nervous but after looking out at the beautiful views of the ocean, i just seemed to relax and enjoy the 15 minute ride up to the top. dont forget to look down as you are going up because you pass over vegetation, small houses and I think it was a small cemetery. when you get to the top there is someone to help you off. Once at the top they have a snack bar, and bar, restrooms and some paths to walk around. I walked around some of the paths and you can see different views. you can stay up there as long as you want and then hop back on the chair lift and go back down. Make sure you bring your camera and wear comfortable walking shoes

“Incredible - Stunning views”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

As others have said, this was the highlight of our trip to Anacapri. I had been before, but never dared to take the chairlift all the way to the top of Mt. Solara. This was the most exhilarating ten euros I've ever spent. The trip took about 13 minutes and the views up and back were impressive, but the views from the summit were simply breathtaking. Highly recommend, although if you are uneasy about heights you may want to reconsider.

“"chairway to heaven"”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

It is easy to see why the chairlift experience to the top of Capri is the number one ranked attraction on the island. We had a perfect day (75 degrees) on Oct. 25th to visit the island of Capri. Some of us in our group were a little leary of the chairlift but once aboad and up the mountain, the views were nothing less than spectacular. I think we all felt this was one of the best things we did on our nine day visit to Italy. The chairlift ride itself was worth the 8E but once on top we were able to see all of Capri and the islands and land with a 360 degree look from the top of Mt. Solaro There are restrooms and a small area to purchase wine, beer and food but we opted for a picnic lunch that we brought with us in a backpack. We even found a table for six under a small tree and just had a delightful eating experience with of course some vino and Peroni. The ride down was just as much fun and were ready to re-encounter the bus ride to Anacapri, the funicular back to Capri town and then our hydrofoil home to Sorrento. Don't miss the chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro!!!

“Chair Lift Up”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We took the single person chair to the top which had fantastic views. Then we walked down. the path was a bit hard to find at the top but then was well established to the bottom.
