Monte Solaro in Capri, Italy

Monte Solaro is the highest point on the island of Capri and easily accessible via a chairlift with 156 seats, taking passengers on a 13 minute ride each way. The lift offers 360 views of the striking blue waters and a peek at Mt. Vesuvius and the city of Naples. Those with a slight fear of heights can brave the hike up but the lift is a relatively smooth and reliable ride. Atop Monte Solaro is a plaza with refreshments and multiple decks so visitors can bask in the natural beauty of Italy and the miles of endless blue ocean and sky.
