Sample the Limoncello

Think of Italy, and you may think of narrow streets, filled with the fizz of spumante and the buzz of vespas. Or perhaps you imagine the warmth and sunshine of the many beautiful beaches, or it's the food that lures you, with its emphasis on flavour and simplicity. And if it's the food, then chances are that at some point, in a ristorante or trattoria, you will find yourself being offered a small glass of something sweet and fragrant and zesty.

Sound familiar? The way to finish any dining experience in Italy is with a digestif, and when in Sorrento- the land of lemons - what better way than to sip the aromatic local liquor, Limoncello.

If you have a hankering for tracking down the origins of this local tipple, then take a stroll along the Amalfi coastline and surrounding countryside to find dozens of Limoncello factories scattered all along the streets (and sampling is usually free of charge).
