The main square on the island and a meeting point for locals and tourists alike. Lots of hustle and bustle as locals and tourists compete for space with bikes, trikes, tuk tuks and any other small vehicle capable of carrying people's luggage up from the...More

The tiny main square with 3 cafes. All have identically dressed waiters and atmosphere. Not a lot to see but take a rest. It's nice enough and if you go to Capri you will end up here as it is the top of the funicular.

Weird juxtaposititioning of shops selling tacky tourist tat in main square, some over-priced cafes dotted around, and many ridiculously over-priced boutiques, jewellers and other high end branded retailers just off it. Shop staff tended to be supercilious to the extent of making us feel uncomfortable....More

Sat in a local cafe as the rain forced us of the street. 6 euros for a shot of hot chocolate and no biscotti of any kind on the side. Tourists must love the price of a Pret when in England if they are used...More

It's getting harder to appreciate the beauty of places like Capri with the sheer number of tourists that go there. But the square has a slightly upmarket elegant charm nevertheless

One can only imagine what the square should look like. There are so many cafes with their seating spreading into the square you would think it was one big dinning area. It must have been a busy community area in its time.

Some of the best people watching in the boot. The hip and beautiful crowd, always out and about. Wonderful vibe.

Its rather expensive for a round of drinks but if you just have to do this - it wasn't actually too busy around midday late September. Its very easy to catch the boat from Sorrento and get the funicular up the hill.

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