Vietri sul Mare

Vietri sul Mare Travel Guide

Avallone is located in the middle of downtown Vietri sul Mare, a coastal town known for its production of handcrafted ceramic tiles and tableware. The tiled exterior of the shop has depictions of ancient hunters, grape harvesters, and a winemaking scene.

The hand-painted floor tiles and ceramic plates decorating the hotels and restaurants along the coast come from the famous workshops of Vietri sul Mare, a suburb of Salerno at the east end of Amalfi Drive.

Founded by Vincenzo Pinto in the 1800's, this is the oldest of the handcrafted tile and ceramic art production houses still operating in Vietri sul Mare.
