Piazza Umberto I, Capri

3.9
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.  Use our Capri tour planning app to add Piazza Umberto I and other attractions to your Capri vacation plans.

  • As a famous slogan of a film "size does matter", that is, size matters but in this case the disappointment is not due to the size but just because it's a square pretty, well maintained lined by bars and boutiques but nothing else.

Rather look towards the stairway where there is the Church or the terrace which opens a wonderful view over Capri and the Sorrentine coast: that which deserves the rating of "Excellence".

  • It has a perfect spot to see the sea. You can see the harbour from the balcony at the sqaure. There are many lovely stores here for tourists to get some souvenirs. And many restaurants for you to choose a place to enjoy meals with a seaside view.
  • Cool
  • 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!
