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.

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