Create an itinerary including Piazza Umberto I
The most famous square on the island of Capri, Piazza Umberto I has been the meeting point and center of town since Roman times. The focal point remains the 18th-century church tower, whose image often stands as a symbol for the island. Host to fish and produce markets in the early 1900s, the square is now filled with a wide array of cafes and restaurants. Settle at an outdoor table to watch the people come and go, or if you stay late enough, catch the sun setting over the sea. From here you can take the funicular back down to the marina.  To visit Piazza Umberto I and get the most from your holiday in Capri, create itinerary details personal to you using our Capri tour planning app.

  • This little piazza is the most famous on the island of Capri. It is situated on the top of the main village Capri. You can take a bus, taxi or the funicular from the port to get up there. The view is absolutely stunning. A great place to enjoy a glass.
  • Beautiful view from this place and you can enjoy courtyard. But we have enjoy more in beach and boat. Fabulous island city to enjoy and lots of activity is available. It is ideal place in summer to can take a deep in blues water and it is a must go place in italy.
