Outlet shopping near Florence


Whilst I was planning for this trip, I found out that there are couple of outlet malls near Florence. I wanted to find some gifts for our parents and a nice suit for hubby. The two outlet malls near Florence are:

  • Prada Space/Outlet – This place is a giant Prada/Miu miu shop. It takes about an hour to get there from Florence by train to Montevarchi then a short taxi ride to the outlet.
  • The Mall – This is an outlet mall complex with popular brands like Prada, Gucci, Burberry, Lanvin, YSL, Tom Ford, Ferragamo, Versace, Valentino, etc. This is where we decided to go to.


How to get to The Mall

The easiest way get there is to hop on the direct bus, leaving from BUSITALIA/SITA depot (Via Santa Caterina da Siena 17, Florence, which is located right next to the Santa Maria Novella Station) and drops you of at the bus stop right in the middle of the outlet mall complex.

One-way ticket cost: 7.00€.
Round trip ticket cost: 13.00 €.
