What to see in Sorrento
One of the ideal places for shopping is the historic center of Sorrento, an endless series of shops, offering a thousand souvenirs, local handicrafts such as ceramics, sandals, spices, aromas and liqueurs. Do not overlook the typical inlaid wood works of the master craftsmen of Sorrento.
Their little shops are a reassuring and colorful presence that is often projected outside the store, covering the walls with shapes and colors.
All this characterizes the environment and makes the walk along the streets of the center pleasant.
