Tour of shops downtown Bologna; malls and factory outlets in the surroundings.

Are you looking for something unusual to do when you come to Bologna and you do not want to spend your time in a food tour or motors one?


If you decide to come with me we can visit all shops, factory outlets and malls in Bologna and surroundings.


I can suggest here a standard tour which can be modified following your requests:

If we meet downtown at approx 9.30 a.m. and you need to buy underwear, swimsuits, pajamas and socks, we can go immediately outside the city center and visit Intimissimi factory. Then we can visit Woolrich outlet in case you need a good jacket, a coat, a hat, a shirt. If also leather shoes are necessary, don’t worry, the factory outlet of Testoni brand is nearby.

Do you need a wonderful pullover or a jumper? There is only one place: Les Copains factory. Very famous brand especially for knitwear.

Carrying on in the same direction we could reach the big shopping center of Castel Guelfo outlet in Castel S. Pietro Terme. With more than 110 stores selling women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, you can choose among 200 prestigious Italian and international brands like Trussardi Jeans, Armani, Elena Mirò, Guess, Massimo Rebecchi, Twin-Set (for clothes) or Baldinini, Pollini, Geox (for shoes). Prices are cut off of about 30% - 40% on normal shops prices.

If you need good leather bags I can take you directly to the factory outlet of Borbonese near Bologna.

If you need Piquadro or Furla bags we can buy them at Castelguelfo, Mantova or Barberino outlets. Furla opens its factory doors only once a year (generally before Christmas time) so if you come in that period the visit to the factory will be possible!

Do you know brands like Liu Jo, Max Mara, Marella, Max and Co., TwinSet, Gaudì, Champion, and Danny Rose? Do you want to visit their factory outlets in Carpi, not far from Modena? We can also decide to spend half day or full day in this leading knitwear district and if this is not enough we can decide to go on and visit the Mantova outlet district.

But if you only want to go shopping downtown Bologna you can decide to come when prices are 50% or 70% off, shopping during SALES period is even better. Periods of sales start from January 6th for the winter collections and from the beginning of August for summer collections, every year.

It is up to you. Decide what you want to buy and depending on this I will suggest places, period and I will be your stylist for one day!

Half day - Full day
Period:  All year round, special offers during sale periods.

Tours of each section are only example of possible itineraries. Your final tour will be built on your own requirements, period of stay and number of people involved.
