After seeing the lengthy queue for the funicular to Capri’s centre, we decided to walk. The walk to the top up very steep and narrow paths is gruelling, so the sight of the square is very welcoming!! The square leads off in different directions, one...More

It’s an expensive Piazza cause it’s in Capri and famous people sometimes sit here. Just be prepared to spend more for everything here

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.

This is a small plaza where you can see the 1/2 part of Capri. You can go to this place by bus or on foot. A famous place in the island of Capri and connects to Anacapri and other nature places.

We came up on the funiculare to be greeted by throngs of tourists and temperatures approaching 30 centigrade. Shade was a premium and prices were overinflated. The children were wilting and we couldn't wait to get back to our boat!

Capri is full of Tourists just milling around. It’s high and compact, a island on a island. Not much to do on top of Capri except walk, shop, eat and watch. One has to see this island when in the area.

An attractive square with the usual Italian fittings. A pleasant enough area to sit and cool off with a drink and people watch but you do pay somewhat over the odds for the privilege here and it can get quite crowded.

Typical Italian piazza with church and stores around central open area. Added bonus of view off mountain down to the water below and Naples and Sorrento across the bay. Also where you access the lift that takes you back down to the water.

Same as previous answer, its a busy tourist spot, so can't see the shops and tours being closed. Its their main income.
