It’s been on the world’s shopping maps since 2000, and it is Italy's largest Designer Outlet. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Serravalle, just off the A7 motorway between Milan and Genoa, is a stunning purpose-built village with attractive Ligurian architecture, where top fashion, accessories, footwear and homeware brands present their collections. Highlights include Salvatore Ferragamo, Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Roberto Cavalli, Furla and Hugo Boss, and amongst the new arrivals are Ermenegildo Zegna, Pandora and Ermanno Scervino.
The formula has proved remarkably successful, and so McArthurGlen is expanding the Serravalle centre, adding 50 new stores. In addition, the new facilities – opening in autumn 2016 – include a VIP Lounge where visitors can relax in a luxurious private shopping area, assisted by a team of multi-lingual personal shoppers. The focus is on ensuring privacy, exclusivity and comfort. The VIP lounge provides high-speed Wi-Fi, and a meeting room is also available.
It’s well worth making a day of it, because in addition to its top shopping, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Serravalle has an interesting selection of cafés and restaurants where you can sample local and Mediterranean specialities. Other services available at the Outlet include valet parking, and tax-free shopping for non-EU citizens. And, of course, discounts from 30 to 70%, always a pleasant surprise.
A shuttle coach service runs 9 times a day from Milan to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Serravalle. See McArthurGlen for more details.
