Sorrento and Limoncello

Ok, I have to tell you, right now, the middle of May, might be the very best time to visit the Amalfi Coast. The weather in Sorrento is extraordinary and the air is perfumed by orange blossoms as it should be.

Of course, we had to taste some of the local specialties, starting with the amazingly popular limoncello. The limoncello from I Giardini di Cataldo is quite good. You sample it in the middle of a lemon and orange grove. There’s not just lemon, but a variety of flavors, my favorite being Liquore di Liquirizia, an intense, black licorice liquor. Second was Mandarin orange.

From there you can go to the Giardini di Cataldo gelateria and refresh your palate with a scoop of limone. Mmm.
