The main street of town is full of shops selling local pottery. Prices and quality vary. We browsed through over a dozen shops before making any purchases. The pottery is vibrant with bright designs and ranges from cups and saucers to huge ornamental Saracen heads.

This was a nice day trip for pottery shopping and seeing the stairs. We traveled with our daughter and she enjoyed being out on the stairs shopping for trinkets and eating lots of gelato. We've been twice and still love it.

We stopped for lunch and bought some pottery here. I am not a shopper but my wife enjoyed it and bought some pieces. The meal was quite good at a Tripadvisor recommended restaurant.
