This area is full of little shops on narrow pathways and streets. They sell everything here from spices and pasta to beautiful bags, shoes and clothes. Of course Limencello is everywhere, as are the familiar knick knacks that are all over Sorrento and just personalised for the area.

These is a very crowded place. Some places were actually jam packed. Lots of shops and restaurants around. The place is interesting and there are many small and narrow side streets worth exploring.

Beautiful in the early evening when the bells are chiming! Sit in the square and admire with an Aperol Spritz and some olives!

After visiting few places on the coast we went to Amalfi and what a great experience that was! I loved everything about it. The atmosphere,the vibe,the looks of it,small shops and bistros. Every inch is historical and although similar to other places on this coast ,unique. Loved it ,loved it,loved it. Wish to come come back some day.
