    Basic shopping mall in Qatari expectations
    Not as flashy as Vendome, but has nice water element with the boats inside. Great number of restaurants! Has some luxury stores, but mainly normal cheaper brands. Parking in weekends basicslly impossible.

    Beautiful Shopping Mall
    Beautiful Shopping Mall. It fascinates me that the shopping mall concept is dying in America where it was started but is thriving in the Middle East in cities like Doha and Dubai. The extreme heat may have something to do with this. The Mall is a tourist attraction but also is a gathering place for the local community just like it was in most American cities back in the day. The mall is huge and beautiful inside. A wide array of stores and restaurants to choose from. The gondola ride offered inside is interesting to see.

    Villagio Shopping Centre
    A must visit in Doha. A canal with gondola boats meanders through the Shopping Centre. Plus there is an ice skating rink, ten pin bowling, roller coaster, Ferris wheel and other rides. A kids paradise. Plus shopping for whatever you need. A bit over the top but a must see. Metro goes direct to the Centre.

    One of the best malls to visit
    The indoor canals with gondola rides was an added unique touch that immediately captured our children's attention. The mall's layout was convenient to navigate, and were amazed by the variety of choices for all kinds of purchases between luxury designer to small kiosks. My kids favorite part was the indoor theme park. The entertainment options were endless, from thrilling rides to fun-filled arcade games. It provided a perfect break from shopping and added an exciting element to our family outing.

    Brilliant and stunning Italian themed Mall with fun fair, amazing shops and fun canal with Gondola ride
    Malls are of course massively popular across the mega hot Middle East and they are everywhere and often very similar. So it is great to see one with so much character and charm and with a fantastic Italian theme throughout. The stunning shops are what you expect, plus coffee and cake shops as well as restaurants. But you also get a big kids fun fair with loads of rides and activities along with stunning Mediterranean boulevards modelled on glorious Italian architecture. The decorative street feel transports you to the beautiful Italian towns. The sky painted ceilings, dramatic domes, bridges, decorative lighting, fountain and of course the fun and Beautiful canal with Gondola rides are to marvel at. Wonderful! If you visit one Mall in Doha this is it. More clever ideas like this make the Mall experience a day out.

    The mall to visit
    Excellent mall. We went on the gondola which is 10QR each. We then went to the theme park where Mon-Thur 10-2pm you can get a wrist band for 50QR and have unlimited rides, really good value. Has all the shops you can think of and a large food court. Also an indoor ice rink.

    Stunning Mall
    Villaggio is an incredible place. Let me just set this out first, I have no interest in shopping or in malls...and yet thi please just blew me away. It's amazing. It's has to be seen to be believed. There is a canal system running through it complete with gondola! The roof is made to look like the sky and the shops look like pastel coloured Iralianate architecture. It looks for all the world like you are outside on an Italian Street. Amazing. And there's an ice-rink in the middle! And a 2022 World Cup Stadium outside in the car park! Just...wow.

    Great place to shop
    I visited this shopping mall today. Plenty of parking, plenty of access points and a really nice atmosphere inside. Every shop you can imagine. Unfortunately for me all the shops are exactly the same as I get in my hometown in the United Kingdom. Far nicer atmosphere, lovely decorative shop , the river was a lovely Touch and a funfair and iceskating rink with lots of restaurants. I would definitely recommend

A large shopping center where you can find all the main European and western brands. The gondolas are to be taken with a bit of humor l.

If you have been to the Venetian in Vegas ! This Villagio isny your average shopping mall ! It is the identical concept from Vegas as well, make sure to come here when you are in Doha, you wont be disappointed at all, this mall has got it all food court, high end shopping and a ice skating ring in the middle part of the food court.

Amusement park with roller coaster ride fun for every kid ☺️

In the heart of Qatar, Villaggio Mall is a fantastic Italian-themed destination. With its fun fair, great shops, and a charming indoor canal offering gondola rides, it's a must-visit spot in this popular tourist destination. The mall's unique features add to the appeal of Qatar, making it a simple yet delightful experience for visitors.

Spent more than half a day here. Beautiful mall that you can spend the entire day and not realize where time went. So many stores, so many food places. Plenty to see and enjoy. It is a beautiful mall and you will get some amazing pictures (hopefully you will not get people behind you- LOL)

Shopping mall is big but what is the point of the Gondola ride when you can do the real thing in Venice. However, in the mall there is a great Indian restaurant called Asha's which served great food though. But the mall is boring.

Enjoyed my tour here. The mall's layout is easy to navigate, and there's a perfect mix of shops, dining spots, and entertainment options. The food court boasts a diverse range of cuisines, catering to every palate. It's a great place to unwind after some retail therapy.

What truly sets Villaggio apart is its attention to detail and commitment to creating a pleasant atmosphere. The indoor canal with gondola rides is a nice touch, adding a touch of whimsy to the whole experience.

Villaggio is like a movie scene - with painted sky view on the ceiling and lighting like a "sunset", I felt like I am stuck at the same time of the day in a closed / open area. In general, there are stores that you can find in a decent mall - but with almost all luxury brands in a section decorated different than the rest of the mall. Also, there is a decent restaurant selection.
The architecture and design is interesting, but having seen Venice and expecting a more local experience, this would not be one of my favorites.
