CAPRI - LA PIAZZETTA

 
  Piazzetta di Capri   Piazzetta di Capri  
 
OVERVIEW

La Piazzetta
Square, Capri Town

The English writer and Capriophile Norman Douglas called this square, officially known as Piazza Umberto I, "the small theater of the world." The rendezvous point for international crowds, this "salone" became famous as the late-night place to spot heavenly bodies -- of the Hollywood variety, that is: Frank Sinatra, Rita Hayworth, Julie Christie, and Julia Roberts are just a few of the celebs who made La Piazzetta the place where the rich and famous came to watch other rich and famous folk. If, in fact, le tout Capri bothers to make an appearance any longer, they show up at 8 in the evening to enjoy an aperitif and some peppery tarallucchi bread sticks, only to return for a late-night limoncello.

In any event, the square is never less than picturesque and has been a natural crossroads and meeting point since Roman times. The religious complex of Santo Stefano was built around the square in the 17th century, but the clock tower and Municipio, or town hall (once the archbishop's palace) are the only remnants of its cathedral. Capri's version of Big Ben -- the charming bell tower, or Torre dell'Orologio -- is perched over the ancient gateway.

Address: At intersection of vias Botteghe, Longano, and Vittorio Emanuele, Capri Town, Italy
