The chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro

The "scala per il cielo" (stairway to the sky) is the chairlift that connects Anacapri to Monte Solaro, a small jewel that has almost seventy years of history. Perhaps less known than the famous Capri funicular that leads to the Piazzetta, it is by all means no less exiting.

The lift plant

The chairlift links Anacapri to the top of Monte Solaro and is a small jewel that has almost seventy years of history. On the wooden seats of the chairlift, travelers from all over the world reach Monte Solaro through a breathtaking ascent of about thirteen minutes where the slow pace of the climb makes you feel cradled and suspended between sky and sea. An unforgettable experience.

A bit of history

The lift plant has been built in the 1950s by the engineer Francesco Uliscia who had discovered the summit with his wife during a holiday in Capri. They were so impressed by the extraordinary beauty of the place that they decided to build a way to make it more easily accessible to everyone. They chose a rope lift with a single-seat chairlift. Over the years the plant has been renewed and updated to the most rigorous and last safety standards but its appearance has maintained that vintage flavor that is typical of some places in Capri.

The trip by chairlift

You take place on individual wooden seats that slowly reach the top station to finally begin the visit to the panoramic site.
The duration of the lift is about 13 minutes at a speed that allows you to admire the view and enjoy a romantic journey on the slopes of the west side of the island from which you can admire the Gulf of Naples and the islands of Ischia and Procida.
At the end you can go down on foot with a walk of about 1 hour or take the chairlift for the return trip.
