Expert review of Monte Solaro

Take a seat for views of Capri from the top of the island.

The highest point of the island is 589 metres above sea level and although it is possible to walk there, the quickest (around 15 minutes), easiest and most fun (unless you suffer from vertigo, which, I have to confess, I think I do) is to take the chair lift. For those who aren't afraid of heights you simply jump on a chair and it whisks you up to the top of the island giving you fabulous views over the entire island. You can take the lift down again or wander down at your own pace - the descent will take around 40 minutes.
