    Rome Shopping

    This is one of the very few boutiques selling nearly new ladies designer wear and accessories. A glimpse in the window and you would believe that all is new. In fact it has a wide range of labels and the quality is great. The staff and the owner make it a wonderful experience. Prices are also very competitive as you are basically getting things...

  • Murano Glassware

    Venice Shopping

    In May 2007 when wandering aimlessly throughout Venezia I found this shop with Murano glass ware and beautiful glass tulips. They caught my attention because of the colour and because I like to take photos of interestingly arranged articles and goods in shop windows. But then I realised that the price for these tulips were not that high thus made...

    Florence Shopping

    This shop is an authentic treasure, the real deal of fine Italian leather. You will find a great selection of finely crafted leather goods (jackets, bags, wallets, etc).

    Como Shopping

    Shopping is rarely part of our traveling itinerary. We rarely buy anything, but we do look around at local crafts and products while visiting. Como is best known for beautiful, locally-made silks which Nancy viewed in store windows. Scarves and other neck ware were shown in abundance, and would likely be the best buy in Como. She found other shops...

    Taormina Shopping

    If everything in Sorrento is made with lemons, everything in Sicily is made with almonds. Taormina has many pasticcerias which sell a tempting range of almond sweets, including beautifully made marzipan fruits. I have to say that I am not entirely sure what one would do with a life size marzipan apple, or even (as I saw in one shop) a marzipan...

  • Market Piazza Erbe

    Padova Shopping

    The main building at the market is of course the Palazzo della Ragione (Hall of Justice). With its length of 82 meters you simply can’t miss it. It’s just a part of the experience to walk up the stairs to the upper galleries and have a look down at the market square. It’s built in 1218 and claims to have the widest room with a roof unsupported by...

    If you want to go shopping in the Duomo area and not spend a fortune, it looks as if Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the best choice. Contrary to the Galleria of the same name, there are not many high fashion shops there, but more shops like Zara, footlocker, GAP and so on.

    I think that both the Mall and Barberino Designer Outlet deserve to be visited since the shops you find are different.

Here you can find several famous fashion outlets such as Prada, Gucci, Armani Jeans, Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Tod's and...
