If you’d like to spend some quality time with your credit card in Florence and the Tuscan countryside, look no further than some special outlets that are well worth a visit. Keep in mind that that these high-end brands are top quality and are not like many of the outlets stores in the U.S. that often offer “seconds” and/or items specifically made for outlets. The discounts tend to run as much as 50 percent and up from Gucci, Ferragamo, Burberry, Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen, to name a few.
The Mall in Leccio Reggello (about an hour outside of Florence…go by car or scheduled bus service)
Built expressly as an outlet mall, an extensive number of designers have individual boutiques within offering very good discounts. There is also a good restaurant and café on the premises.
