Here is the heart of Capri, La Piazzetta, the little square, it is the place where you come to see and be seen. Since the '50's it has been the favorite destination for film stars, such as Audrey Hepburn, Lana Turner, King Faruk, Birgit Bardot, Monica Bellucci, Isabella Rossellini and the most famous Vip associated with Capri, Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The piazzetta is where you will find the papparazzi ready to capture a famous face and a budding love affair. It was here that Capri pants and sandals were launched. There are four bars in the small square so watch out where you sit. Let me help you decide, the Caffe Caso is for tourists, the Piccolo Bar is for breakfast as they make the best croissants, the Gran Caffe Vuotto is for the international set and the Bar Tiberio, is the trendy place for people to be seen. At the Bar Tiberio the cashier will receive packages for you, take messages etc., great service and very useful. It is so much fun and a must to sit and sip an aperitivo in the piazzetta before dinner.
