This places may not appeal to historians or art lovers, but for dedicated followers of fashion, designer label junkies or anyone who just can't resist a fantastic bargain: welcome then to The Mall and Prada Outlet, Italy's most exclusive outlet centre. And with Gucci, Ferragamo, Prada, Sergio Rossi, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent and more at up 60% off it is the Holy Grail of designer shopping.
Your Shopping Tour adventure begins when your personal driver for the day greets you at your place of stay. Your first stop will be at Prada Factory Outlet. The Prada outlet is a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort to purchase products from one of Italian leading stylist for prices up to half off the retail price.
We will then head to the luxury Outlet called The Mall. Out of the handful of shops running parallel to each other Fendi, Ungaro, Valentino, Bottega Veneta, Sergio Rossi, Yves Saint Laurent, Ermengildo Zegna and, of course, Gucci & Armani have the most wearable booty. Even if designer labels don't matter to you, it's easy to be seduced by the quality behind the brands. Buttery soft leather jackets, figure skimming tailored suits, and shoes and handbags - there's just so much you want to buy. And don't be fooled into thinking you only need an hour to do the lot. It may be last season's stock, samples and seconds, but browsing is a leisurely pleasure, because for once you can afford the stuff that is usually only seen splashed across celebrity bodies and glossy magazines.
This Tour will be particularly well-suited if combined with the Florence Day Tour.
