Piazza Umberto I, Capri
(3.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
The most famous square on the island of Capri, Piazza Umberto I has been the meeting point and center of town since Roman times. The focal point remains the 18th-century church tower, whose image often stands as a symbol for the island. Host to fish and produce markets in the early 1900s, the square is now filled with a wide array of cafes and restaurants. Settle at an outdoor table to watch the people come and go, or if you stay late enough, catch the sun setting over the sea. From here you can take the funicular back down to the marina.  Put Piazza Umberto I on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Capri itinerary maker.

  • It is the ideal place for an aperitif on the terrace, enjoy the animation of this arrival place, landscape around and then find a restaurant in the small streets around

  • an authentic Italian piazza, with all the charm of cafes and fun but more famous than it deserves. Nice location, right in the Centre of the island, with a lot of joy in the air. Highlight hot afternoons for a final day.
