Sorrento & Amalfi Guide Italy



Traditional crafts in the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast are a great source of shopping opportunities, including wooden ornaments, ceramics and gastronomical products. Sorrento's main shopping street, where you can find most stores and fashion boutiques, is Via San Cesareo.
If you're planning a trip to Sorrento, make sure you go to some of the many workshops of the wood inlayers. This ancient technique originated right here in this town, and later spread throughout the whole region. The process is quite complex: small pieces of different types of wood (walnut, olive, orange, holly) are arranged into exquisite patterns or pictures. If you are looking for a special gift, you'll be spoilt for choice, from furniture to tiny ornamental boxes.
When it comes to the region's gastronomical specialties, we suggest you pick up and take home some delicious limoncello, as well as a few lemons: just sprinkle a few slices with sugar and enjoy. Nocino is another of the region's typical liqueurs, which is certain to bring a smile to the faces of your friends and relations. And why not take them a bag of excellent walnuts, which are plentiful in these parts. As well as these gastronomical specialties, in Amalfi you can also find scented candle sculptures, handmade silver jewelry, and embroidered cameos and tablecloths. To conclude this small shopping guide, Vietri has been renowned for centuries for its wonderful ceramic artists, while Positano is the ideal place to find a whole assortment of clothes, sandals, swimwear and other accessories.
