Dear Sybil,

Factory outlet shopping at the Mall is about an hour from Florence. From A1, take the Incisa exit, then SS69 towards Pontassieve; turn left before Leccio (signs for Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi); when the road forks, you can go right for Fendi/Celine/Loewe and left for Dolce & Gabbana.

These driving directions come from:

I have never driven there so double check this route with your hotel or a local source when you are in Italy. If you prefer rail, take the train to Rignano sull’Arno, then it’s a short taxi ride. For shuttle services or rental cars with drivers, reserve online with To get a map in advance, you might try, a route planner for Europe, or other online sources such as or a good travel bookstore.

If you are referring to Lo Spaccio, near Parma, where there are new outlets for Gucci, Prada, Dolce and Gabbana and Fendi, check directions and hours of operation at For Fidenza Village outlet shopping, click on their website:

Happy shopping and safe driving,
