23 Feb

Tuscany is not only, wonderful countryside landscapes, beautiful cities, renaissance art, culture, excellent wines and food, artisanal products, but also fashion and shopping. In this article we would like to give you the main Outlets’ addresses.
-PRADA has been the first important griffe opening the door of his factory door. The factory store is also known as I PELLETTIERI D’ITALIA, and it is located in Levanella, 52025 Montevarchi (AR). The telephone number is 0039 055 91 901.
Opening hours: normally seven days a week. It is better to call ahead to check opening hours as they can be subject to sudden changes. Saturday is the busiest day. Avoid it, if you can. The admission is possible until half an hour before closing time.
How to get there:
By train: take the train to Montevarchi station and then get a cab (about 15 minutes).
By car: take the A1 motorway – Exit ‘Valdarno’, Out of the toll turn right and follow signs for ‘Montevarchi’ or ‘Centro’. At the big round about that has an IPER – COOP supermarket exit left. Then continue towards Arezzo. Pass through Montevarchi and ‘Località levanella’ after the village pass a gas station and then follow signs for I PELLETTIERI D’ITALIA in the ‘Zona Industriale’ on the left. The sign for the outlet is at a traffic light. On your left is a huge grey factory that is all Prada and the outlet is in the back of the main factory complex.
ADVISE: It is better to arrive at Prada before it opens at 9.30. At the door you take a ticket from the stainless steel dispenser and then retire to the nice café next door, which has an electronic number counter to let the client waiting know when the turn comes. The best items are always there first thing and go quickly, later in the day there can be a long wait before getting in to the out let.
Keep your ticket. Any thing you are interested in to buy, you have give to the sales assistant who will store it for you whilst you continue your choices, at the end you have a second chance to re look at every thing calmly and make your final selection.
