“Great shopping”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Was there many times and always found any things. The outlet is cozy especially on weekdays. On weekends could be overcrowded. The price is reasonable and a sight cheaper as the normal price. Almost always they had the most sizes for me. I like the shops with friendly staff and come back very soon.

“Artificial village with interesting fashion shops”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Ideal place to see many designer shops without having to drive to the city. It takes easily two hours to visit the village.

“Real Cheap Prada find!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I would say I was quite disappointed with Barberino upon reaching as there are mostly unknown US brand instead of great European brands. The Raph Lauren is more expensive then HK's outlet mall and far less selection for ladies' dress. However, i'm still lucky to have some great finds as below:
1) CK, man's pants, ties and belts are going at real cheap price.
2) Managed to find a Prada handbag-Model: Madras which is handmade in India and full calf leather selling at EUR690. (Compare the same bag in Dubai and they are selling at equiv of ard EUR1880).
3) Nescafe coffee machine, Dolce Gusto at EUR47+ after discount (include 2 free boxes of Espresso capsules). The same coffee machine is selling at equv EUR123 in my country.
Do note that as the area is an open concept outlet mall, it will be inconvenient on a raining day.

Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you are a serious shopper, then a visit to Barberino Designer Outlet 40 mins out of Florence should be on your To do list. Bus costs 15 Euros each for a return ticket. Check out the link http://www.mcarthurglen.com/it/barberino-designer-outlet/it/. Some great buys to be had from all of the worlds best design labels. Beautifully laid out shopping area over a creek of crystal clear water. Cheap lunches available too.

“Alternative for Shoppers”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are staying or visiting anywhere within the vicinity of Firenze, Tuscany, the shopping outlets here provides another alternative from The Space or The Mall. A good lineup of shops with brand names, Prade is there so too is Ralph Lauren. After visiting The Mall, we decided to pay Barberino a visit and didn't regret it. Shopped at Prada, Bruno Magli, Ralph Lauren and Samsonite to name a few. As mentioned, worth visiting if you are nearby.
