It would be no exaggeration to say that the five McArthurGlen Designer Outlets in Italy have redefined the shopping map. Many of the most sought-after fashion brands are present in these prestige locations, offering savings of 30% to 70%. The centres also offer restaurants, cafés and children’s play areas: an exciting day out for the whole family. Serravalle Designer Outlet, 50 minutes’ drive from Milan, offers more of the top names in luxury and designer fashion than any other designer outlet in Italy, all in a setting recalling the Ligurian towns on the coast about half an hour away.
If you are staying in Venice and feel like some retail therapy, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Noventa di Piave, 40 minutes’ drive from the city, provides the answer. Among Venetian-style mosaics and frescoes, you can also shop here for many of the most desirable brands.
Barberino Designer Outlet is particularly evocative, with Renaissance-style buildings and even a river, over which timber footbridges connect the stores. Just half an hour from Florence, it is a favourite with discerning local shoppers.
Castel Romano Designer Outlet, 30 minutes from Rome, offers wonderful views over the Tyrrhenian Sea. Amidst classical Romestyle architecture, browse and shop for the many luxury and designer brands. La Reggia Designer Outlet is off the motorway that links Naples to Rome, and offers 127 of the best boutiques, all in an attractive setting inspired by the nearby Amalfi coast. McArthurGlen Designer Outlets: the new capitals of style.
