Inlaid wood is a beautiful craft and here there are many examples of this art form. The palazzo where it is located is also very interesting and worth a look. There are also other crafts and paintings, everything makes for a very pleasant visit.

Located in a gorgeous villa, the museum specializes in industry unique to Sorrento such as the citrus trade and wood etched tables and hand crafted furniture. The cost was 8.00 but it was justified because it was 4 floors filled with treasures.

There isn't really that much to do in Sorrento, although it is a pretty little town around which a pleasant day can be spent wandering. The Museobottega della Tarsialignea (Museum of inlaid wood) is one of the few places that you can actually go into...More
