Local products # 3 - lemons. Agapanthus and lemon trees line the Thun's private "bowling alley". Lemons are the symbol of Capri, they grow everywhere and are used not only in cooking but as inspiration for and on everything. You can find lemons painted on jugs, soap dishes, tea towels, plates and tiles. Or you can buy scented lemon chocolate, soap and perfume, the best is from Carthusia, I Profumi di Capri. Or try the delicious limoncello liqueur which comes in a variety of bottles in all shapes and sizes including the boot shape representing Italy. Or taste the cakes, biscuits, granite, sorbets and spaghetti al limone, just to mention a few dishes made with lemons.
