Charming street filled with a mix of mid-couture stores and souvenir-packed shops. The volume of Godfather-themed merchandise rivals that of merchandise truly representative of the region (like terracotta lemons).

Great to sit somewhere & watch the people go by if you enjoy that or if you like high class shopping but very busy.
