Mount Solaro, the highest point of Capri, offers a wonderful view of the island and also the entire Gulf of Naples and Salerno.  The trail follows the crest of the cliffs overlooking the sea, evidence of the tectonic evolution of the island (the fantastic limestone walls of the Marmolada), which was once linked with Punta Campanella. There are many sea birds, and reptiles that you can see along the way, as well as beatiful Mediterranean vegetation and rare species of orchids. It starts from the port of Marina Grande, from where you can take a bus up to the square of Anacapri, and follow Via Acquaviva, going up following the path with the representation of Via Crucis, to the solar observatory; from here follow the ridge on the right along Monte Solaro. Once you reach the Belvedere Migliara, you can continue to Punta Carena and Fortini, or go down again to the east, following the path of Passetiello up to the square of Capri.
