The Via Mazzini forms a direct connection between the Piazza Brà and the Piazza delle Erbe. It is not only the largest pedestrian area of Verona, but is also one of the busiest streets of the city and Verona’s shop window. Row upon row of shops line the road, and large crowds of tourists amble from window to window. All major Italian fashion brands are represented here and offer their goods. Anyone who is looking for the latest fashion in clothes, shoes and accessories and has a corresponding budget will certainly find what he or she is looking for. If you’re staying in Verona during the time of the Saldi (sales), you will have the chance to find a bargain or two for less money.
Via Mazzini is the sort of place I will be shopping in one day. Hopefully. Want some Gucci, Cartier or Fendi designer gear? Well, step over that guy from the Ivory Coast selling the knock off versions and amble down the street known as the 'Golden Mile'
Its also quite a nice stroll from both Piazzas so if you can't afford to buy anything at least you're going somewhere.
What to buy: Here - silk scarves, designer handbags, leather shoes, tailor made suits. If its fancy you can get it here.
What to pay: Prices that I can't afford
Via Mazzini is the smartest of Verona's shopping streets. Here you will find the fashion shops and designer boutiques such as Gucci and Versace. During the peak shopping periods this street is packed with the smart people of Verona, so much so that you can't get a decent photo. So this picture was taken late at night, on our way back from the restaurant.
This is a street to stroll along, and to window shop. It is one of the streets that the Veronese themselves stroll, to see and be seen, especially in the early evening when it can be almost impossible to walk in a straight line for ten yards.
The city of Verona offers great schopping, in particularly designed clothing and shoes. The best shops you can find in Via Mazzini, but also in the nearby small streets around it. Let me introduce which trade-marks you can find here: Pollini, Rossetti, and Principe for shoes, Gucci, Max Mara, Ralph Lauren, Luisa Spagnoli, Ferre, Armani, Versace for cloths and lot more.
What to buy: To those who don't care how much it costs, any time of the year is convinient. However, most of the visitors care for the prices. In all shops you can burgain the prices but you need a very good skill to obtain it.
The proper time to get a good price for clothing or shoes is a low season; second half of Avgust and first half of September for summer collection, and Xmas time and the beginning of January for the winter collection.
What to pay: Less as possible, always burgain the prices, you can do it and the sellers are expecting that.
At my hotel I asked where normal people in Verona go shopping for clothes, i.e. people who don't want to spend a fortune for the latest fashions on the Via Mazzini.
One of the stores they suggested was Oviesse on the Via Roma, which did in fact have exactly what I was looking for, and at a lower price than I would have paid in Germany.
Second photo: Oviesse with the Teatro Filarmonico on the left.
The look for less....
So ladies I had only visited Bershka previously earlier this year and I was in and out and never gave the store a chance. Then today....BAM!!!! I was inside for 2 hours, browsing, trying on clothes, matching items, etc. The clothing is reasonable and they carry many items in the same sizes, which is nice because it is so sad to find a shirt and then it's not in your size.
I would compare this store to a "Rocker-esque" Zara boutique. And if you love Zara you will enjoy Bershka. The items are ranging from 4 Euro-49.90 Euro. They carry shoes, belts, and accessories among the other many fun items you can think of. And there is an upstairs which has some funky work-out wear. So if you are up to to the challenge go ahead jump in and have fun making your outfit. No need for a massive amount of cash 50 Euro will get you a cute,funky outfit.
What to buy: Everything!!!!!
What to pay: Spend whatever you want!
I say between 1Euro-1000Euro
Looking for high fashion in Verona? Then head towards Piazza Brá. Just near the Arena is Via Mazzini which has all the high fashion stores plus more! This is a pedestrian only street and is a great place to shop, if you have the money.
You will find stores like: Furla, Gucci, Armani and Louis Vuitton. Plus there are many other clothing shops, chemists, music stores, book stores, restaurants/cafes. There are also banks and ATMs along here for you to use.
If you are a rich person then money is no object,just buy buy buy.
Me being a poor traveller have to walk a lot to find the cheapest restaurant...
What to buy: Very fashionable clothes for men and women.
Shoes,jewellery,cameras,you can find anything as long as you got the money and lots of it.
What to pay: Maybe you spend $100000000 or in my case just $5.
If you feel like excercising your pocket book, head to Via Mazzini, a mile-long pedestrian-only stretch of top-name shops. You will mainly find clothing, leather goods, and shoes. There are many high-end Italian designer stores here as well. Dress to impress or at least be impressed by how other shoppers are dressed. And remember, windowshopping never hurt anyone! ;)
Via Mazzini is the main street of Verona. There are many shops situated there and some of the most expensive shops are there.
Via Mazzini (pedestrian zone) is the favourite shopping street of both locals and tourists. You'll find every kind of shops.
