The shopping village is in beautiful surroundings in the highlands up behind the coast near to the village of Brugnato and along the river Vara. Before or after you shop, you could visit some of the lovely mountain villages and natural scenery in Val di Vara (Varadalen).
The shopping village can be seen from the highway A12 / E80, which runs through Liguria. The exit is called Brugnato / Borghetto V. and the outlet is located right at the exit. The signs are clear, and there are approximately 1,000 parking spaces available.
The village opened in stages and now there are 100 stores to choose from. Most are located on the ground level - and some individual ones on the 1st floor. There is mostly clothing and sportswear (Italian and international brands), but otherwise there are furniture stores and shops selling local products. It is said that you can make 70% savings and it's all very welcoming with terraces to relax on, toilets, an info-centre and restaurants. It is open daily between 10:00 to 20:00 hours. On special days and during the summer it may also be open longer. The official address is: Via Nuova Antica Romana snc - 19020 Brugnato (SP).
It is almost impossible to arrive here in other way but your own car, or hire car. However, if you are staying in La Spezie, you can take the daily shuttle bus that runs from the train stations. See more on their website for prices and times: www.shopinnbrugnato5terre.it
