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.
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Mount Solaro chair lift 10 euros return - one way is 7,50 - a great trip up in a comfortable seat - good views of Anacapri - when we went at 10am - the clouds we swirling around the top, so the views were limited. It is better to do this later on in the day as it increases the chances that the sun will burn off the cloud/fog. I definite must do on Capri.

The bus to Anacapri is an experience in itself as you wind you way up narrow island roads. Once in Anacapri the chair ride up Mt Solaro is fantastic, have your camera ready to take pics on the way up. At the top there are plenty of spots to admire the views and take photos.

This is a must do on your trip to Capri.

I recommend everyone takes this chairlift from Anacapri. We were there in late July and were surprised that it was not busier and our school party of 35 got on easily. Well worth the 10 Euro return. Single seat chairlift with a rudimentary bar for holding you in (parents with children may wish to consider this)
Journey takes 13 minutes each way and once you start it seems almost silent as you glide above the vegetation.At the top, the views as everyone has said are phenomenal and the cafe area is lovely with lots of different places to sit. Prices are high, but worth it!
We came down on the chairlift too (pressure of time) but if you have the time I would recommend walking down for a different perspective.
Overall, a 'must do' if you are on Capri and especially if you find yourself in Anacapri.

If you get to the Island of Capri (Italy), make sure to get to Anacapri to ride the chairlift to Mount Solaro (marine layer and clouds not blocking, of course). Upon arriving in the main port, you can tell if the weather will allow a grand view from the highest point on the island (1,900+ feet above sea level). The cost is 7 euros one way, 10 euros round trip. A solo chairlift ride awaits your journey to a grand vista at the top. Well worth the journey, again, provided the weather allows you to view the main Italian coastline and the beautiful Island of Capri.

Why we waited until the last day to do this I don't know because I really wanted to go back and didn't have the time. The views from the top are phenomenal and really help give you a perspective of the island that you don't get from below. It's a little exhilarating too as you ascend further than expected. There is even a bar at the top if you want to relax and take it all in. A must do!
