    Piazza Umberto I : Have coffee like a movie star

    One expensive coffee!!

    The Piazza Umberto I has four cafes in the main square and is constantly full of people especially at the tables under the umbrellas. This is more for "being seen" than anything else because the Piazzetta is famous for the social scene.

    I wouldn't call the food spectacular either ~ I had a ham & cheese sandwich and a macchiato for 10 euros!! This was because the restaurants were closed for lunch and I was hungry. Oh well, when in Rome .....

    Piazza Umberto

    The "heart" of Capritown is the Piazza Umberto I - which is a small, closed-off square resembling a courtyard. One of the main features of the Piazza is the ''Torre dell'Orologio'', or Clock Tower. This tower is possibly the belltower of the old cathedral.

    Around the piazza is the medieval quarter, interesting for its history and layout and its network of small, winding alleys. The piazza was most likely built on the site of a primitive inhabited area of Capri.

    This piazza is where the funicular brings you to from the marina.
