Sorrento, Italy

Via di San Cesareo (St. Cesareo street)

In ancient Times, via San Cesareo was the Decumano Massimo, the central street of the Roman city of Sorrento.

It seems that, despite the passing of the centuries, little has changed. In the past it was an urban thoroughfare, now it is the ideal place for filling shopping bags and lightening one's pockets: souvenirs, characteristic curios and crafts are all on display.

Littered with bars and restaurants, those who love to shop, till they drop, can collapse and recharge anytime on an Italian culinary delicacy.

The portals and façades dominating the street, for the most part are Neapolitan Baroque, dating back to the Seventeenth-Eighteenth Centuries.

For cool a moment and a chance to admire Baroque art and architecture, the Church of the Madonna Addolorata, which has stood since the eleven hundreds, may be worth a visit.
