Welcome to Monte Solaro, the Capri’s terrace
What can we add to the word Capri? A melting-pot of beauty, elegance, history, legend, parfumes, views and much more.
All this you can see from the highest summit of the island, well-known for this with the name of “acchiappanuvole” (catch clouds): that’s the Monte Solaro!
From here, it overlooks the divine Capri in its totality and, all around, looking elsewhere you can see the famous Faraglioni and Amalfi coast, Ischia and Procida, the whole Naples gulf and Amalfi, the famous maritime republic in an incomparable experience, hang between sky and sea in a timeless place.
The charm of the magic Monte Solaro is more exclusive because it could be reached by trekking with different paths or by the beautiful and vintage chair lift. The chair lift is, from many decades, the stairway to the heaven. Loved by several tourists come from everywhere and taken in a picture still today by VIP like Rita Hayworth or Jacqueline Kennedy, who have visited this place.
From the entrance of the chair lift until Monte Solaro, you can breath an historical atmosphere passed down from father to son, that with their smile, can you guide in an evocative experience. On the summit you will be the protagonist of the enchantment that this place gives, for decades, to thousands tourists.
Enjoy all the sensation this place will give you. We hope to give you a relax moment between our balconies, in which you will find also a Bistrot, a Restaurant and an ancient Tower become a delicious boutique. This last, was built during the Napoleonic wars for military aims and renovated in postwar.
We wait for you, with all our heart, to share with you a bit of the beauty that here grows naturally between upland hang in the blue mediterranean sea.
After so many months of forced closure due to the coronavirus we are happy to announce that the chairlift to Monte Solaro and the Bistrot “La canzone del cielo” are finally reopened and fully accessible.
In these weeks we have taken care of the place in a special way, paying the utmost attention to safety and regulations in force. Visiting Monte Solaro today is finally possible without running any risk.
We are waiting for you with open arms.
