Amalfi Things to Do: 120 reviews and 216 photos
Lemons grow in abundance around the Amalfi Coast and they seem to have become an icon or emblem for the area.
Tourist shops have lemons on all sorts of things for sale - aprons, teatowels with recipes of the famed sweet Limoncello lemon drink that is made with all these lemons, carry bags, bottle stoppers, all sorts of knick knacks and household items.
Ive seen house tile number plates decorated with lemons and even road signs and antique porcelain lemons for sale in antique shops!
I was pleased to actually see real lemons growing, and also being harvested, as it was the lemon season when I was visiting in November. This must involve a fair bit of hard work I imagine as the areas they were in were the typical steep slopes coming down from the winding wilds of the hills up to Ravello, that are so prevalent around the area!!
