Historical information is beautifully presented over three floors with information in English and Italian. It includes fascinating insights into the old lemon/citrus industries and a marvellous collection of prints of old Sorrento (make sure you open the draws!) I also learned about the time when...More

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.

This museum holds a beautiful collection of inlaid wood and other antiques. The building it is housed in is a deceptively grand space offering a sense of retreat from the busy Sorrento streets. Helpful man in reception was enthusiastic about the collection and informative.

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
