I say here by myself and chatted with locals as well as tourists. Even saw a gorgeous wedding party exiting the nearby church. This was a lovely spot to sit, back relax and enjoy the atmosphere!

Since everyone enters this area when they arrive on the funicular train it does get crowded. I would suggest that you seek cafes elsewhere and explore the lovely narrow streets. If you go to the left it is a good walk to gardens and wonderful sea views. If you go straight ahead try not to miss an outstanding tiled map... More

We stayed at an apt right around the corner, so ended up spending a lot of time here taking in the view, people watching, had breakfast and some drinks throughout our stay.

Very romantic and inviting square. Great place for an evening cocktail for two lovers. When I was there a concert was happening with a wonderful singer performing Andre Bocelli songs.

Crowded during the day, overpriced cafes with lacking service and closed at night. This piazza was a big disappointment for us while on Capri. Maybe it was partly the time of year, end of October. One of our favorite things is to sit in the piazza of a town, enjoy a drink in the afternoon and evening and people watch.... More

Good architecture. Nice lookout behind it. Kind of a standard tourist place that you take a photo, enjoy for a minute and move on to other spot.

very lovely place indeed, even it is very crowdy and really hot in July. Best for a coffee break while you plan the next step for your journey and close to everything. We enjoyed the rush of this place, Umberto plaza it is a connection point where eveybody is going up and down, a nice holiday fever that makes us... More

We had cocktails here a couple of times. It was fun to sit and watch all the people. There were a couple of bride and grooms that came though too.

Overpriced cafes and lots of people jammed into a small space. Better to get out of this piazza as soon as possible and explore the streets leading to it, and the back ways, then hop on a bus and go to Anacapri, which is prettier and quieter.

Some architecture, a view, and hordes of visitors, you can't help but come to the Piazza. Staying there is a personal option, and done at the expense of more time at breathtaking beauty.
