A must do for any small Italian city is to stop for a cappuccino or wine and just take it all in. Good people watching!

Everyone sits here. Get ready for show and some churchbells. You quickly get used to the feeling of being in some Fellini movie. It is just must. And drink costs some more. But in Italy do as italians.

Most famous square in Capri city, small, full of terraces of very expensive cafés, I really missed the authenticity of the place. It may have been nice 50 years ago to sit there and have a coffee, but with mass tourism, it lost a lot.
