No holiday in Tuscany is complete without a shopping spree. Florence is one of the world’s design capitals, and home to 4 of the most renowned Italian fashion designers. You can shop these famous designers in the city itself, or head out of town to Tuscany’s luxury outlets to hunt down bargains on luxury shopping.
The Mall is the most famous shopping outlet in Tuscany, specialising in Italian and international designers. Luxury outlet stores include Gucci, Ferragamo, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Prada.
The Mall Outlet Florence is actually a 40-minute drive from Florence, but can be easily reached by bus or car. BUSITALIA/SITA runs a shuttle bus service every 30 minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station in the city centre (€13 round-trip).
If you are driving from one of our luxury villas in Tuscany, free parking for customers is also available at The Mall.

The Space Outlet
The Space is an outlet in Tuscany reserved for Prada and all Prada lines including Miu Miu, Church’s and Car Shoe. You can find bargains on handbags, accessories, clothing and shoes. During high season the outlet admits only 100 shoppers at a time, so it is best to avoid peak hours.
Often known as the Prada Outlet Florence, this factory shop is actually an hour from the city but easily reached by car or train. The nearest train station is Montevarchi, and from there a taxi ride takes approximately 20 minutes (8€–10€). Free parking is also available at the outlet.
