Though a world away from Italy’s shopping capital of Milan, the Amalfi Coast’s Sorrento, Capri and Positano are home to some of the country’s most famous shopping. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors find that each village offers similar souvenirs — limoncello, floaty skirts, leather sandals and pottery — but for all the repetition, each artisan storefront offers something unique. If you’re looking for designer Italian clothing or jewelry, head to the streets surrounding Piazza Tasso in Sorrento for lively after-dusk shopping. Stroll Via Cristoforo Colombo in Positano for a pair of famed leather sandals. For more artisan vendors, limoncello shops and ceramics typical of the Amalfi Coast, take time to stroll through one of the smaller villages, such as Vietri sul Mare in Salerno, where you’ll find a hub of local artists crafting traditional citrus-inspired ceramics.
