Absolutely love this place! Amazing views and tranquil ambient. Certainly enjoyable on a good summer day. Beautiful landmark. You will enjoy this area and its amazing views to the sea.

This is the first place you come to off the Funicular. It is rammed with people, it is very buzzy and great to sit and watch all the comings and goings, but even though the restaurants state no cover charge tax etc, it still cost £5 for a coffee!

This is a great place for a glass of wine, relax from shopping and just people watch. Very lively and fun for a drink or quick snack.

It's lovely but very expensive, a lemonade and a coffee 13.50 euros. A nice place to sit and people watch.

Outdoor cafes crowded during the day and night. We never paused here except to cross through to another area. Mainly a place to see and be seen.

It's the center of Capri and where the "funicolare" ends up. Even though the cafes look nice, and the request for a table is huge, the piazza ends up just being too clutered. Arquitecturally is beautiful, but this type of places about in Italy.

The Piazetta is a lovely place to grab a drink and an apéritif...with its multiple choices of swanky cafes. It makes for a great spot for people watching...

Quaint little square where you can pick up buses to take to go to the rest of the island - funicular was great fun and the little restaurants were very cute

This is the hub of Capri town. People watching is the pastime however so busy. Take any exit and you'll find something to amaze you.
