The outlets in Milano and the surrounding areas are real shopping villages, selling top brand labels at affordable prices. They are often cities within cities, offering full services such as bars, restaurants, refreshment areas and kids entertainment to create a welcoming vibe in out-of-city locations for great family days out. Easily accessible from Milano - some even provide organized shuttle services - the outlets have extended trading times and are sometimes open 7 days a week.
There is something for everyone: from the Fox Town Mendrisio, which is generally considered as one of the world's largest outlets, to the relaxed atmosphere of the VicoLungo Style Outlet, the Outlet Franciacorta where you will also find designer labels and the Serravalle Outlet and Fidenza which are in the charming natural setting of the Ligurian Apennines.
However, without straying too far from the centre of Milano, you can spend some time in the Segrate Outlet Village or the Fashion City Outlet in San Giuliano Milanese and the recently opened Scalo Milano Outlet & More.
