I have heard the (( the mall )) & prada outlet is a must in Florence ??
Should I waste my time thier or milan malls and outlets are sufficient ?
Also is there any better shopping area in Florence ? Or in all italy
A must? Seriously?
If you don't give a damn about art, architecture, history, culture, food, wine, and just about everything else that makes life worth living, I guess The Mall, Barberino Montevarchi, etc., are " a must".
Dear Venerosi, I wake up in the middle of the night full of cold, unable to breath and only log-on by way of distraction but your observations are, as always, the remedy for all ills, I'm already feeling better.
Seriously, OP, where are you coming from, what are the stores like where you live? How much importance does designer fashion play in your life? I wouldn't know a Prada bag if one hit me on the head but from what I hear about the outlet Malls in Tuscany, it's all last season's stuff (or the season before), sometimes seconds (ie stuff they can't sell in the regular shops) and usually in very strange sizes. Also, don't go in expecting to speak Italian. My best friend was there once and had to settle for speaking what she calls English to a Russian shop assistant in order to be served.
I have no idea where you live, but to travel half way around the World to shop for a discounted bad is insane. Sorry. Just insane.
