Presentation Transcript

Slide1:

Monte Solaro

Slide2:

Capri is an island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples. The main town Capri that is located on the island shares the name. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic

Slide3:

Anacapri is located on the slopes of Mount Solaro and has about 7,000 residents. The Ancient Greek prefix ana- means "up" or "above", signifying that Anacapri is located at a higher elevation on the island than Capri (about 150 m higher on average) 

Slide4:

During the rapid ascent in the chair lift (some 13 minutes) to the summit of the mountain, the tourist has an opportunity to enjoy the splendid views of the Gulf of Naples with Vesuvius in the background, the Gulf of Salerno, Anacapri, the Isle of Ischia and the incomparable beauty of the colour of the sea. Monte Solaro is the highest point on Capri.

Slide9:

above the rooftops of Anacapri’s houses and over terraced gardens and orchards towards the summit

Slide27:

Monte Solaro (589m above sea level), is the highest point on Capri. It is characterized by a deeply eroded slope to the east and south east right down to the sea and a incline which falls towards Anacapri

Slide28:

At the summit there is a cafe with panoramic terraces usually busy with chairlift arrivals, but the surrounding slopes are much more peaceful and ideal for photos. When the weather is clear the views are beautiful

Slide30:

View from Monte Solaro towards the Faraglioni

Slide32:

Monte Solaro offers the visitor all the scenic beauty of Capri, from the proud Faraglioni emerging from the sea to the majestic rugged coastline covered with over 850 species of striking, luxuriant vegetation

Slide33:

Faraglioni is the collective name for three stacks located off the island of Capri in the Bay of Naples. The stacks are called: Stella which is still attached to the main island; Mezzo and Scopolo

Slide37:

Panoramic views across Capri from the summit of Monte Solaro: the whitewashed houses which cover the hillsides of Capri Town

Slide38:

Up the mount there is a statue of Emperor Augustus who first landed on Capri

Slide40:

The ruined 18th-century fort, the Fortino di Bruto, a blockhouse which was used in battles between Britain and France in the early 19th century. In the 1950s a holiday complex called the Canzone del Cielo (Song of Heaven) was built at the summit, where visitors could swim or relax in the solarium while enjoying the views. It’s closed down now unfortunately, but their old American Bar has been converted into a terrace café/bar

Slide54:

With one of Monte Solaro’s nicknames being Acchiappanuvole (cloud catcher), you are lucky if you get a clear view. The temperature difference between the sea and the rocks makes the warmer sea air condense into a thick blanket of fog, and in the mornings and afternoons you often can’t see the summit at all. But on a beautiful spring day, the sky was clear and the mountain was calling
