Piazza Umberto I, Capri

(700+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • The charm of the Piazzetta enchants visitors from around the world. Is a gathering place where humble and powerful walking shoulder to shoulder without submission nor pride.

  • From the Marina you can reach the piazzetta taking a short walk in will go up that it's hot takes slightly and you sweat greatly if it is hot or else I would recommend taking the funicular. From the square you can enjoy a beautiful view

  • A square that manages to convey so much. A square that makes possible the exchange of ideas with the locals and who manages to make you enjoy the breathtaking scenery that this city has to offer. Recommended.
