The Piazzetta : Cathedral St Stefano
When you arrive at the cafe packed square at the Piazzetta and on top of some steps, you will find the ex Cathedral of St Stefano, constructed in the 17th century. The floors in the interior was paved with marbles taken from the Roman villas on the island of Capri.

The Piazzetta : Smooze like a movie star
The Piazzetta is also known as Piazza Umberto I where from the white columned terrace of the funicular railway, you can have a fabulous view of Monte Solaro. This is also the center of social life on the island where you can not only shop but people watch
However, the Piazzetta had a more humble beginning as a fish & vegetable market. All that changed in 1938 after Raffaele Vuotto placed in some chairs in the square & changed the whole concept in the square

The scene of 1950s and 1960s Dolce Vita and a setting for love affairs, betrayal, scandals and Hollywood scoops, Piazza Umberto I still maintains its role as the very heart of society life on the island today. Sitting at one of the open air cafe tables beneath the Clock Tower is a ritual that no visitor should miss out on.
