Museo del Corallo Camo

Museum in Ravello

Ostensibly a cameo shop selling engraved gems with raised reliefs crafted primarily out of coral and shell. However, out back there's the added bonus of a small museum beyond the showroom where you can view such magnificent pieces as a mid-16th-century Madonna, a 3rd-century-AD Roman amphora, gorgeous tortoiseshell combs and some exquisite oil paintings.

Camo is the antithesis of the overpriced shops in the centre of Ravello, though you may think twice about the ethics of buying coral. Giorgio’s cameos have been commissioned by all kinds of well-known folk, including Hillary Clinton and actress Susan Sarandon.
