Naples has its own designer outlet:
La Reggia Designer Outlet, the fifth of McArthurGlen’s Italian designer discount outlet malls opened in February 2010. This is Phase I, with Phase II to follow.
The new Naples designer outlet is close to historic city of Caserta and the Amalfi Coast and is within easy reach of the A1 between Rome and Naples. The Outlet has over 120 designer and famous brands at the normal discount rates available at McArthurGlen outlets.
Naples is a fascinating city, rich in history, culture, art, gastronomy and tradition. Historic buildings, churches, streets, ancient fortresses, caves, castles in the sea and many other attractions will keep visitors very occupied in this city which UNESCO has listed as a World Heritage Site in 1995.
Naples is also Sophia Loren country. As a child she grew up at her grandmother’s place close to Naples and up to this day she keeps a keen interest in developments of the region. If you’re lucky you might see her in the region, which we very nearly did.
Also near La Reggia Outlet is the 18th-century Royal Palace of Caserta, the last great building of the Italian Baroque period. With 1,200 rooms decorated in various styles and 3.2 km of park, the Palace is a popular tourist attraction as well as a set location for many films, including Star Wars and Mission Impossible III. The city of Caserta itself is a major business centre for national and international companies.
