Great experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
Well worth the visit. 18 Euros per adult for the return ticket. Lots of fun to go up the mountain in an oversized yellow birdcage! Amazing views over the whole island. Great to do at the beginning of holiday as easy to get bearings on the beautiful island. Cafe bar at top of cable car for drinks and snacks.

It's very helpful to reach the top of the highest mountain in Elba. It is very small but ok, wouldn't go on a windy day..

What can i say...Wow! Do not miss it!

Wow, what can i say! Absolutely stunning views of the whole of Elba, and on a clear day you can see Monte Christo, Pianosa, Corsica and mainland Italy.
There is a open air cable that can take you up 2 people at a time (which in itself is amazing), or for the brave and fit you can hike up to the top. I did't do this but I was told if fit it would take about 3-4 hours. And you will need to make sure you take plenty of water with you, I didn't see any vendors selling supplies.
I would highly recommend shoes and not flip flops as you will need to clamber over rocks to reach the summit.
Magical!

Great fun and Fantastic view

A »must see« attraction when you are on Elba. A funny 2-person basket-lift (similar they use for transportation in ski resorts) takes you to the mountain of Capanne, 1.000m above the sea.
The ride is a great fun (if you are not used to ski lift scan be scary), than you walk to the top of the mountain where you enjoy great view to the Marciana Marina on one side and mountains on the other side.
There is the bar on the top station but unfortunately was closed when we were up.
Do not miss!

Very nice experience to go when you are visiting island Elba. The ride is spectacular and I would regret if we would take a ride wit it.

Lovely trip up to the highest point on Elba.

Well the return fare is €18 per adult, seems expensive. However, the fare is worth it on a sunny day. The views from Mount Capenne are wonderful. For a start you can see the mainland from the top plus Corsica in the distance.

Plus there is the experience of a 2 person standing cable car! Not for people who don't like heights. It all has its own rhythm and you go up and down opposite the people going up/down the mountain.

There is a cafe at the top which charges €1 for an Expresso or €1.50 for a Cappuccino. Try the Expresso with Grappa! Also, the Chocolate Cake for €3.50 was delicious.

There is 1 toilet at the top, make sure you carry some tissues and have a friend stand guard as the lock is non existent!

The actual summit is a short walk away up an uneven path.

Brilliant trip up the mountain. Breathtaking.
Jul 2017 • Family
Went with the family as my son had seen the pictures and was really keen to go up. Worst part was the bus journey to Marchiana without aircon! €18 adults and kids at half price.
I'm a little uneasy with heights, but the sight of a mountain always wins me over.
Walk onto the cage as it turns at the base, and as you leave the station and motors behind, the almost silent glide through the chestnut trees is amazing, birds, lizards, and butterflies below.
Then, leaving the forest, the climb really begins. Stanchions 10 to 11, the concave shape of the rocky mountain drops away. By this point I was a little... distracted, but the views get more incredible the further up you get. The final half dozen stanchions seem the steepest, as you approach the destination. And no, you don't need to jump off into the netting.
Walk off at the top, then after the the 600m or so rise in the cage, the last 50m is an easy scramble up the steps to the peak.
Past the helipad, then to the top, to see the entire island, the mainland, Corsica and more. And look down on the odd cloud.
Back down for a beer at the bar. (How civilised are the Italians?) and the buzz from being on top makes the journey down a mellow, quiet ride.....
I'm still smiling about it now. Fantastico.

You ride up the hill in little cages. It's fun.

Or you could get a workout and do the hike. Either way there's a spectacular view at the top and it's well worth it.

Exciting for $18 euro per person. Our group enjoyed every minute of it!! Fear of heights - Forgetta about it. Two in our grup feared heights and did it anyway and they were glad they did!

The mountain and the view deserve a better chairlift...
Sep 2016
Little yellow steal cages for two people standing all the way up the mountain...
The whole operation stops for a "rest" between 13:00 and 14:20 !!! so if you are not careful you may get stuck at the top for an extra hour...
