#1 Mount Solaro

The tallest mountain on Capri is also a top attraction on the island. From the top, you can see most of Capri's major towns and points of interest; however, you can also see the Bay of Naples and the distant Amalfi Coast. Past reviewers said a trip up to the top does not disappoint, with some calling it the experience of a lifetime. Plus, a chairlift from Anacapri will take you from the town to the summit in only 12 minutes. In your rides up and down, you'll pass quaint farms, local vegetation and pristine neighborhoods. If you'd prefer the challenge of climbing the mountain yourself, you can take the trail from Anacapri, which takes between an hour and 90 minutes.

The chairlift to the top is open year round, and a ticket costs 11 euros (around $12.35), or 8 euros (about $9) if you want to walk down. Between March and October, the lift is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. If you visit between November and February, you can ride up between 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. To access this attraction, just take the bus to Anacapri. There are restrooms and small eateries at the top of Mount Solaro, but there are also plenty of facilities at the base.
