Can’t wait to spend your foreign currency on some fancy new European threads? From the impossibly chic Champs Elysées in Paris to the hidden wonders of Milan’s factory outlets, we can tell you where to find the best destinations for shopping in Europe.
Once you’re done shopping, you can pop into the closest café for a refreshing glass of sangria.
Getting to the Serravalle Designer Outlet is easy. All you need to do is get on the A7 Milano-Genova motorway and take the Serravalle Scrivia exit. From the railway stations of Arquata Scrivia, Serravalle Scrivia and Novi Ligure, you can catch a shuttle bus that runs at regular intervals throughout the day.
Oxford Street is arguably the most famous – not to mention the oldest. Built along an ancient Roman road, it was transformed into a shopping district around the 19th Century. The first department stores in Britain opened on Oxford Street, many of which still operate today. It has over 300 shops, and sees half a million visitors each day.
Of course, Harrods also deserves a mention when it comes to shopping culture in London. Covering one million square feet of retail space, it’s the city’s most well-known department store. Even if you can’t afford to buy any of the luxury goods on offer, you can always grab a tasty treat in Harrods’ huge food hall.
Before you can start shopping in Europe, you’ll need to get your foreign exchange organised. It doesn’t matter if you need euros, pounds, rubles, kronas or another type of currency – Travel Money Oz can ensure you have the right kind of cash ready for your trip.
