“Told off”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Interesting typical Italian piazza with lots of cafés and outdoor seating. Some shops within piazza. Really remember it because shopkeeper came out of store and told me to move away from blocking his window display - that was a first !

“Narrow lanes”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Piazza Umberto is a maze of narrow little lanes winding between traditional whitewashed buildings. These lanes can get crowded; A couple of lanes in the heart of town are lined with shops: jewellery, designer fashion, accessories and one or two more affordable stores. Walking a little further are cafes and restaurants and out along quieter, bougainvillea-draped lanes. You can take the funicular from here to the Grande marina.

“A slower pace in the square in the off season”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We visited Capri in November and the pace was much slower than during the high season for the tourists visiting the island. The Piazza is where you can catch the funicular down to Marina Grande. It also leads to many swanky shops for high fashion. It was a slower pace that we found three years earlier on our first visit to Capri. It is a good spot to sit and people watch.

“Lively place”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

It is a lively little square close to the church. There were couple of marriage processions from the church, tourists assembling there, pizza places charging ridiculous amounts, small lanes leading to tourist attractions,.. One can get lost watching the people and the views of the sea and sunset in the evening..
