For those who can’t or don’t want to go to Fox Town in Mendrisio by car, there is a shuttle bus leaving from Milan every day in the direction of the outlet, in nearby Switzerland in Canton Ticino.
For many foreign tourists who come to Milan for shopping, it seems a paradox, but the most convenient solution often seems to be to Switzerland instead to remain in Italy!
Yes, because a few kilometers from the border, in Mendrisio, there is an outlet consisting of 3 km of windows and 160 stores that can offer discounts from 30 to 70% on the price list. The brands for sale are mostly Italian and concern the most famous designers, those that leave your friends breathless when you wear your designer clothes.
So, big business is guaranteed, especially if you have a passion for designer fashion, at very high prices on average but that guarantee quality and excellence for the brand they show off.
For those who do not have a car, or simply do not want to stress with parking or traffic problems, the agency Zani Viaggi organizes a trip by bus from Milan every day, twice a day, towards … shopping paradise!
The price is 20 euros for the return trip.
These are shuttle buses recognizable externally for the presence of the fox, the symbol of the Swiss shopping temple, which start from Piazza Cairoli, right in the center of Milan, at 10.00 am and 1.00 pm, and arrive after an hour and a half to the Swiss outlet. The coach will wait for you around 5 hours … will it be enough to do all the shopping you want?
