Shopping in Italy


Welcome to shopping wonderland

You can easily combine a love for travel with a love for shopping in Italy if you know where to look! Plan your trip to give yourself considerable time to navigate your way through the streets (and shops) of the small towns, and extra time to do your bargain hunting. Some excellent purchase options are clothes,
especially designer dresses, shoes, gloves, silk ties, shirts; lacework, gold and silver jewelry, leather goods (handbags, gloves, cases, boxes, luggage), ceramics, alabaster, woodwork, embroidery, glass and crystal.

Italian products are known for their high quality, innovative design, and impeccable style. Stores are open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They close for a lunch break and reopen at 3:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. In larger cities, stores do not close for lunch and are open later (until 10:00 p.m.). Most shops are closed on Sundays.

Fashion Sense

Italy is famous worldwide for its fashion industry and is always at the forefront of fashion and style. While shopping in Italy, the first thing you need to know is the Italian equivalent of American clothing sizes.

Bargain Hunting - Outlets

To keep up with the latest fashion trends at reasonable prices, outlets are the way to go! In warehouses or shopping malls, they offer discounted designer labels from factory surplus or previous seasons. Most of the fashion houses, such as Prada, Fendi, Armani, and Gucci, have outlet stores in or near Milan,
Florence, and Turin. All offer a designer shopping environment and friendly, courteous staff who speak a number of different languages.
