Piazza Umberto I, Capri

3.4
#9 of 61 in Things to do in Capri
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 on this place that Extras are installed to the terraces of cafes. The price of consumption is outrageous. The Piazza is beautiful but crowded.

    Beautiful place surrounded by restaurants and terrace where drinks and let time run out. Plan a budget because the fuel is expensive. We would again to stay on the island the evening when daily tourists went to enjoy the place.

    Famous and renowned square of Capri with many bars/restaurants and shops. She's very pretty and definitely worth a visit, but there is even more to see in the famous island!

  • We are located in piazzetta?? So we tell each other every year with my colleagues when we come to the Conference! La piazzetta is another extraordinary symbols of Capri! Actually the square is packed with bars and a favorite destination for happy hour, what is extraordinary is the belvedere out of marina grande and the Amalfi Coast! Only that is worth a trip even thousands of kilometres away!

Where to stay in Capri

A popular island retreat, Capri offers some of the world's finest seaside lodging options. Most luxury and boutique hotels are located along the water, offering top-notch amenities and access to the best beaches. This tiny island has a big tourist following, which means that in high season even the most economic hotels might cost as much as four- or five-star establishments on the mainland. To avoid the high costs of big chains, consider booking your stay at a traditional B&B farther away from the island's main tourist areas.
