The small shops in Como’s downtown and the characteristic orthogonal alleys surrounded by historical buildings are the perfect frame to beautiful walks and to enjoy the beauty of our city.

Shopping in Como: affordable luxury and high ends fashion in the outlet malls
Quality and saving money seems to be the perfect match if visit the areas around Como on a shopping trip.
And this is because in the last few years we have witnessed the opening of several outlet malls which we always advise our guests to visit. Some of them are situated in the southern part of Como, near Cermenate: the most famous and visited is Armani’s outlet. Two floors of pure shopping and fun with the quality of this famous Made in Italy brand, but at affordable prices.
The other must-visit shopping mall for tourists and Como’s inhabitants both is the Fox Town Shopping Mall situated in Mendrisio, Switzerland, only 15 minutes away from our Hotel Posta in Moltrasio. Fox Town is a giant outlet mall on 3 floors with more than 60 flagship stores! A real paradise for fashion victims (sometimes we would really like to take a picture of the quantity of shopping bags that accompany the return or our guests and of their happiness!).
At the Fox Town outlet mall is possible to find, in between the others: Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Nike, Ferragamo, Hoogan, Polo Ralph Lauren, La Martina, Ferrari, Reebok, Lewi’s, Bagatt, Bassetti, Blu Marine, Hugo Boss, Burberry, Cavalli, Cerruti, Desigual, Diesel, Guess… and many many more brands! This is why mantourism at Lake Comoy of our guests, instead of visiting the chaotic Milan, prefer the convenience of an outlet mall only a few minutes away from the hotel, also the perfect solution to occupy a rainy day!
In Arese (Milan) in 2016 was inaugurated one of the largest shopping centers in Europe: one big happy island for the shopping lovers!
