Only stopped here on the way to some other attractions. I knew instantly it was just not the sort of place for me. Even being the very end of the season there seemed to be a ridiculous number of tourists around and not much else...More

It's getting harder to appreciate the beauty of places like Capri with the sheer number of tourists that go there. But the square has a slightly upmarket elegant charm nevertheless

One can only imagine what the square should look like. There are so many cafes with their seating spreading into the square you would think it was one big dinning area. It must have been a busy community area in its time.

Some of the best people watching in the boot. The hip and beautiful crowd, always out and about. Wonderful vibe.

Nice if your out on a Saturday night to sit at the outdoor cafes and enjoy a cappuccino or glass of wine while they have free live music.

I came here in the shoulder season hoping to see fewer tourists, but unfortunately peak season seems to extend into the Autumn months. The piazza was crowded with tourists and very over-priced but the view down to the water was beautiful.

Same as previous answer, its a busy tourist spot, so can't see the shops and tours being closed. Its their main income.
