We were here in September and the crowds were everywhere, in the piazza, cafes, shops, and even the church. You can do some people watching if you can find an empty spot on a bench. We didn't do much here because it was too crowded...More

If you take the funicular up to Capri town, you will exit into the square. It is compact, with a number of streets disgorging tourists and cafes with large numbers of outside tables. It is extremely busy and quite noisy, with the small golf buggies...More

The centre of the Capri Town. Near to where you can catch the Fernicula railway and buses. Very very busy. Lots of tourists. Fairly small, packed with restaurants. Have to walk through here to get to the other parts of Capri town.
