Piazza San Gaetano 72

From lemon fruit to
limoncello, essence
of Campania. See it
made, and sample it.

The Campania region is famous for its
lemons. Sorrento lemons in particular
are prized for their quality, highly
perfumed with sweet, juicy flesh and few
seeds. In this enchanting place, carved
from the ancient Greek and Roman walls
in the heart of the city, the lemons
are used to make the famous limoncello
liqueur by macerating the zests in pure
grain alcohol. Variations include nocillo,
another strong liqueur with walnuts an
essential ingredient. You can not only see
the processes but also sample the results.
