Souvenirs from Positano, the best to pack

4th May 2020

 

A holiday in Positano can’t end without some shopping: you should definitely buy at least one souvenir able to bring you back, in a second, to our pebble beaches, tickled by the light sea breeze.

Indeed, a souvenir serves the purpose of bringing you here again, whenever you need it, even when you are a thousand of kilometres away. On the Amalfi Coast there are many artifacts and typical objects, telling about this land courted by the waves. So, look around you, wear sunglasses and let's dive together into a universe of craftsmanship and tradition. The most beautiful souvenirs from Positano are hidden in the markets, in the refined boutiques, in the historic shops of the city.

 

The precious lemons of the Amalfi Coast

 

Appreciated in Italy and worldwide, the lemons of the Amalfi Coast - called sfusati amalfitani - are among our most precious treasures. The penetrating and unforgettable aroma, the sunny colour, the intense taste make it the citrus fruit symbol of our coast. Positano people enjoy it in infinite recipes: in fragrant linguine, with the freshest fish of the day, even meat and vegetables are sprinkled with it; at the end of the meal, the delizia al limone (lemon delight) or a homemade sorbet help digestion.

The fruit of the sun also enhances refreshing drinks, jams and pies, but its apotheosis, equally loved by Positano and tourists, is definitely the limoncello. Aromatic and extremely digestive, this liqueur gives the mouth full-bodied hints, typical of the sfusati that are born only in the lemon groves of the Amalfi Coast. Coming back home from your trip, stop in Positano's best-stocked food and wine shops and buy sun-kissed lemons and limoncello: each sip retains the flavour of the dream summer spent by us.

 

The traditional ceramics

 

Art and craftsmanship, in the towns of our coast, have always been viscerally linked to the sea, the sun, the clear sky. The indescribable shades of the Amalfi Coast are the favourite subject of a production of local artefacts, fruit of our clay soil and of the passion for the waves. Let's talk about the artistic ceramics that dress houses and shops, embellish stone walls and simple wooden tables.

Vietri sul Mare and Positano boast the oldest and most extraordinary workshops of artefacts, developed above all with the spread of luxury tourism on the Amalfi Coast in the twentieth century. Pastel shades full of light and seascapes characterize the ceramics of Positano: valuable souvenirs that will make your living room - and every corner of the house - elegant like no other.

 

Clothes and sandals born in Positano

 

Alongside food and wine delights and handcrafted products, Positano boasts a unique and unmistakable style of clothing, which became very famous in the seventies because it was flaunted by overseas stars on holiday on the Amalfi Coast.

Positano fashion, still very current nowadays, stands out for its light and natural fabrics, dyed with sunny shades and embellished with beads, corals or small shells. The items that we recommend you to pack are the wide floral dresses, the colourful scarves, the asymmetrical and fluttering kaftans, in short, everything you need to wear the Amalfi summer wherever you are. And don't forget a bikini dotted with turquoise or precious stones: the most famous boutiques are located in the centre of Positano and near the Spiaggia Grande.

But it is not all: the authentic Positano outfit is completed with a tailor-made shoe by skilled craftsmen. In Positano, in fact, we dress particular leather sandals of ancient tradition. Born almost by chance from the creativity of the local shoemakers, these sandals were immediately successful, at the point that, even today, are among the most appreciated souvenirs by tourists in Positano. The shoes are produced by hand, carefully woven in the most imaginative styles, and are decorated with hard stones, shells, marine or floral motifs.

Comfortable, precious, beautiful: the unmissable souvenirs of a stay on the Amalfi Coast​.

A dive into deepest blue water.
And the sky a hair’s breath away.
