There seems to be some question as to go or not to go to the Outlet Malls. We just went in Oct. '06. This Mall outside of Florence is great for those people who normally shop at Designer stores. The discounts are good, but I would go early because they get picked over quickly. I bought a YSL bag for E160 which was orginally E700. This is not the outlet malls that you are used to in the States so don't be shocked if the prices are high for you. The Mall is really nice and only has designer stores, YSL, Fendi, Gucci, etc.
