Milan is the historical economic powerhouse of Northern Italy that is also rich in artistic treasures. But the city is most strongly linked to luxury fashion brands and considered the hub and birthplace of great design in Europe.
If in Milan and anxious to experience a true shopping experience with great deals, I strongly advise a visit to an amazing shopping location called “FoxTown Factory Stores”, just 45 minutes north of Milan, where you cross the border into Switzerland and where you can spend a great day of shopping. The trip to FoxTown brings you through some beautiful scenery, including beautiful views of Lake Come where famous stars like George Clooney have holiday homes.
At FoxTown you will find a place dedicated shopping paradise that is home to all the most well-known luxury and fashion brands – but with benefit of extremely excitingly low prices. There are more than 160 stores of the most prestigious brands of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, sportswear, household goods and accessories with discounts up to 70% on the original price!
FoxTown was the first Outlet Centre in Southern Europe and boasts a fine and prestigious range of great Italian retail names like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Prada, Blumarine, Valentino, Versace, Fendi …You also find other brands that we love like Ralph Laurent, Michel Kors, Desigual, Sandro, Dsquared2, Pinko, Adidas Nike … the list is great and irresistible!
FoxTown is open 7 days a week from 11 am to 7 pm, which provides an impressive number of customer facilities for you to coordinate and take full advantage of your travel program.
On my last trip to Milan, I decided to take advantage of this great experience by combining “luxury shopping with low prices”. I happily spent a full day in Foxtown, and I must admit, the day was so memorable, that I am already preparing my next visit!
I arrived in the morning to enjoy the entire day. I travelled by car, but you have several comfortable and economical travel options like bus and trains that depart directly from the centre of Milan or Lugano and leave you on the front steps of FoxTown.
When I arrived, under the glass ceiling of FoxTown, light up with a beautiful light of the sun, I decided to have a coffee in one of the charming restaurants, since the “fashion marathon” promised to be intense. This is the best time for you to take some time to read the FoxTown shopping guide that clearly lists the shops by sectors and allows you to netter plan your time, that’s to a detailed map.
There are three floors of shops dedicated to men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, but also sports accessories, lingerie, shoes, jewellery, home products that include the most prestigious brands of bed linen and tableware, as well as electronics, toys, and games.
And do not forget; besides the prestigious brands, you have several services at your disposal to make your day more pleasant. You can enjoy several restaurants and cafes and with free Wi-Fi, this is a good opportunity to talk to your friends and family and share with them this beautiful moment.
I particularly loved the Chalet Swiss, a cosy and well-decorated restaurant that makes you really fell that you the mountain and where I could enjoy a tasty and authentic Swiss Fondue and Raclette!
I had a very happy time with my friends and colleagues Claudia Cipolla and Marie Marletta
You also have a Currency Exchange Office, where you can exchange your cash for Swiss francs at good rates, you have a Children’s Recreation Area, so that you enjoy shopping without worrying about the children.
There is a Bag Storage Service, a Tailoring Service if you need and quick adjustments on your clothes, a help point and information, parking … Everything to ensure that you and your family spend pleasant and pleasant moments …

Once the shopping frenzy subsides, why not make your way to the beauty salon or even try your luck at the Grand Casino Admiral – There really is some much to do in FoxTown!
