How to get there:

By train: take the train to Montevarchi station and then get a cab (about 15 minutes).

By car: take the A1 autostrada - Exit 'Valdarno', Out of the toll turn right and follow signs for ‘Montevarchi’ or ‘Centro’. At the big round about that has an IPER - COOP supermarket exit left. Then continue towards Arezzo. Pass through Montevarchi and 'Località levanella' after the village pass a gas station and then follow signs for I PELLETTIERI D'ITALIA in the 'Zona Industriale' on the left. The sign for the outlet is at a traffic light. On your left is a huge grey factory that is all Prada and the out let is in the back of the main factory complex. Prada is the hardest to find but the most worth the effort. Do not hesitate to show local people the address to get a direction, they are quite accustomed to lost fashionistas.

If you don’t want to go by train and don’t have a car we can arrange a car and driver for you. For Northern Tuscan Departures there may be an added fee.

NOTE: It is best to arrive at Prada before it opens at 9.30. At the door you take a ticket from the slim stainless steel dispenser and then retire to the very chic bar/café next door, which has an electronic number counter to let you know when it's your turn. The choicest items are always there first thing and go quickly, later in the day there can be a long wait before getting in to the out let.

Keep your ticket. Any thing you think you might want to buy you can give to a sales assistant who will store it for you whilst you rampage on to the next discovery, at the end you have a second chance to re look at every thing calmly and make your final selection.

Do not bother going on weekends, public holidays or during the peak sale periods (when the best old stock is sent to the stores)As with all out lets, it can be hit or miss, some times you will be lucky and other times you will not find any thing worth buying.

At Prada 9 times out of 10 you will be stuck for choice 1 time you won't find a thing to buy, it depends on luck.
