Citta del Sole

Historic Center
Children’s Toys

It’s the kind of toy store where an adult might linger even without kids in tow, filled with a marvelous curation of the whimsical (beautiful handcrafted wood nightlights) and practical (mini umbrellas for unexpected rainy days), classic books in Italian and English, and all manner of gifts to bring back home. Organized by age group, the shop is easy to navigate and constitutes the type of tots’ shop we wish we could find in every town.
