    Via Cesareo: Main Shopping Street

    by TooTallFinn24 Updated Aug 31, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Via Cesareo is the main shopping street in Sorrento. The best place to start a walk down the street is where it intersects the Plaza Tasso. The street narrows to a group of small shops and stalls selling a diverse group of products. Lemon products, walnuts, olive oil and a wide selection of candies are just a few items offered. There are also some local crafts available such as embroidery and wood intarsia.

    Some of the stalls along the street are a little dark making selection and exchanging money a little difficult.

    What to buy: Lemons, which grow abundantly throughout the hills, are in every form of product. From soap, linens, t shirts, scarfs and even bathing suits they appear. Also as candies, liquors, cookies, cakes, pies, and one of my favorites fudge lemons dominate. Many of the lemon food items are produced locally. Prices vary extraordinarily on the street which is surprising considering that Via Cesareo is really not that long.

  • Sorrento Gioielli / Sorrento Jewellery Shop: Jewellery in Sorrento - Buyer Beware!

    by Finnmeister Written May 31, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This store had some very lovely jewellery. But that being said, save your money and don't risk getting ripped off. We truly enjoyed all the shopping in Sorrento. Bought lovely scarves for 8-10 euros, beautiful lemon soap shops, inlaid wood and the rest. Very disappointed to purchase a pendant from this particular jewellery store only to find out after I got back home overseas that they had intentionally overcharged me by "250.00" Euros. Yes, you heard right! Total rip off artists. If I had noticed while I was there, I would have gone right back, but alas. I found this shocker out after I left Italy. I found their website and thought I might pick up another item, only to discover their own website is priced far less to order online. In the store itself, they ask double the price and gouge you big time. So if you want jewellery...go elsewhere or check their website first. They will lie to your face. Actually, if I ever shop anywhere again for a big priced item, I would now always check if the business has a website first and see their prices prior. Don't get caught out like we did. I wrote them by email about this, and they never replied. Other than that...trip was great, other shop keepers were kind, honest and prices were excellent. Sorrento is lovely! Won't let this terrible experience ruin my time there. Simply trying to save others from getting caught like this and losing lots of $$, and perhaps recoup some of my loss via helping others not do the same.

    What to buy: Cameos, Gold, Pendants, etc.

    What to pay: WAY TOO MUCH! THEY ARE BLATANT THIEVES. MANY OTHER NICE JEWELLERY STORES IN SORRENTO WHO WON'T ROB YOU LIKE THIS ONE.

    Address: Corso Italia and at Via Luigi de Maio, Sorrento

    Directions: Found in back streets behind main Piazza Tasso in town. Two locations - one in back streets the other on main street heading into the Piiazza.

    Limon candies

    by Ilney Written Jan 20, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    almost any shop you can find the lemon candies. They are packed in small transparent bags.
    They are kind of yellow hard little balls . They not too sour when you start to absorb it flavor but then, a very small amount of limon juice comes out of it. Very good to my taste.
    I brought 2 bags home but I wish I had brought more.

    What to pay: About 2 euros for one bag.

    Lemon candies - very tasty!

    FATTORIA TERRANOVA: ITALIAN STAPLES

    by travelgourmet Updated May 11, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This agricultural shop for the Fattoria Terranova is located in the Piazza Tasso. Great location for the display of produce and food items grown and made in the Sorrento area. The actual farm is located about 8 km from Sorrento in Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. From Sorrento, keep on the SS 145, continue for Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi: travel 7 km and you will have arrived. Do not enter the town! Continue for a kilometer on SS 145, which then becomes Via Nastro Verde, and turn right on Strada Provinciale 4 (or Via Nastro Azzurro). Travel 400 meters and turn left on Via Pontone. You have arrived! The holiday farm Fattoria Terranova is at number 10. Worth the visit.

    What to buy: Olive oils, Limoncello, many jarred items with my favorite, Baba alla Crema di Limoni. Made in the region and able to carry through customs of any country. Of course, if you are staying in Sorrento and have access to a stove, then the garlic, peppers, parsley, basil, and pastas are also good purchases. The basic Italian staples.

    What to pay: The average price is based on what you buy. A jar of Baba alla Crema di Limoni was only about $9.00. Produce was competitive with markets.

    Address: Piazza Tasso for store. Farm outside of Sorrento.

    Directions: Center of Sorrento for store, near Piazza Tasso. Main Farm is in Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. Directions to farm above.

    Local Specialties: What to buy?

    by goodfish Updated Aug 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sorrento has a larger selection of items, at more affordable prices, than most other areas of the Amalfi coast. From a few euro to draining your 401 (if airfare hasn't already done so) you'll be able to find that perfect something to haul home. So what are the local specialties?

    First of all, you're in the Land of the Lemon - Sorrentine lemons taste like no others on earth and are iconic to this region. You'll see lemons on, or in, everything - soaps, cookies, plates, linens, scarves, decorative tile, candy, hats and anything else you can think of. And of course there's the quintessential alcoholic beverage of Sorrento: limoncello. It's pure sunshine in a bottle - with a very decent kick. You can find it in sizes ranging from a sip to supersized and most shops will ship.

    Other good buys are handmade sandals and other leather goods, items crafted of inlaid woods, and coral jewelry. Prices can vary - the same box of cookies might be a euro or so less expensive at one shop vs another - so shop around a bit before handing over your credit card. I also recommend doing your browsing at night when the streets around Pizza Tasso close to traffic (see "Evening Passeggiata" tip under Things to Do.).

    Note: A couple of the photos were taken on Capri but the items are similar to what you'll find in Sorrento

  • Max Mara: Clothing and Accessories

    by Naja9 Written Feb 27, 2009

    Very-very polite ladies. Try to speak italian. They are really helpful.

    What to buy: Well, I found lots of items in stock. Items that were not there at the same shop in Naples. Since it was the sales period Naples runs out of the best clothing very soon, since it's a bigger city. But in Sorrento, I did find really great bargains both for women's clothes and bags. Try it!

    What to pay: Max Mara (sale): 260 euro for a tailleur (wool and cashmere). 80 euro for a beautiful and very original twin-set (wool). 35 euro for a great 100% silk scarf. New collection: 300 euro for a pair of marvellous spring boots.
    Furla (sale): 135 euro for a big pony skin handbag. Nannini (sale): 130 euro for an all-leather (nappa) big handbag.

    Address: Corso Italia

    Directions: Centre of the town, along Corso Italia.

    Ceramics, Inlaid Wooden items, Murano Glass.: Shop to you drop!

    by Cazee Updated Nov 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Shopping in Sorrento is fab. You can buy painted ceramics, leather goods, and lots of local speciality goods like Limoncello and inlaid wooden jewellery boxes. I noticed they were obsessed with cats in Sorrento and you could buy anything with cats on. Also Pinnocchio is seen a lot in shops here and Murano glass jewellery is popular. There are many Limoncello shops which will allow you to taste before you buy and see how the Limoncello is made.

    various: Souvenirs from Sorrento

    by toonsarah Written Nov 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From what we saw, shopping for souvenirs seems to be a favourite occupation for visitors to Sorrento. The narrow streets are lined with shops all selling very similar things, although the quality was variable. Among the items I saw were silk scarves, ceramic wall decorations, leather goods, linen (e.g. table cloths and napkins), beauty products scented with lemon, oddly shaped bottles of limoncello (e.g. in the shape of Italy), scented candles and food products from the region (many involving lemons). As it was November there were also a lot of lovely (and some less lovely) Christmas decorations.

    We only window-shopped so I can’t say anything about the prices.

    Directions: The Via Furoro and Via San Cesareo, west of the Piazza Tasso, had many of these shops
