This is a beautiful piazza where everything is happening. In the evening, the lights from the restaurants and bars are very beautiful. If you are lucky, you might see a wedding.

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 !

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.

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.
