Owner description: From Piazza della Vittoria you can take a breathtaking chairlift to the top of Mount Solaro, the highest point on Capri at 1,932 feet.

This was a rather hair raising trip up to the top of Mount Solaro from Anacapri. With an elevation of 589 m, its peak is the highest point of Capri and the only way up is on a tiny, single seat chair lift!
As I discovered, the "safety" bar across your lap does nothing, it can be lifted up with impunity! Usually I do not have a problem with heights or chair lifts, but oddly, I had the overwhelming need to stand up during the journey - not a good idea - and I had to cling to the pole in order to stop myself simply getting up!
Looking back I think I had a bit of the terror at that point and was too scared to take in the wonderful views.
Once safely on the summit there are fantastic views of the island and out to sea and numerous little paths to explore, theres a café up there too, bit pricey but then so is capri in general!
Definitely worth braving the ride to see the views from the top.

Absolutely stunning. Ride was a lot longer than I thought it would be. The 'seggiovia' is in the main piazzetta. Go up the stairs and to the right and you'll see the entrance. It's possible to walk down but opted for the return as we were short on time.

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

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.
