Le Marche Designer Fashion Shopping Tour
Full Day including Breakfast, Lunch and personal shopper
Spend the day with Krizia Gobbi as you visit, shop, eat and relax together
while being driven in a private van around the beautiful Italian countryside.
Where the Artisans, small family run factories and big multinationals
sit alongside one another producing fashions for designers such as
All of them have a Le Marche designer outlet shop where you can pick
up fashions at a 70-80% discount. Le Marche is the shoe, purse and hat
district for all things Italian.
Women and Men as well enjoy visiting the shops even if you are not a
designer driven buyer we can visit shops in every price range. Just seeing
the quality and craftsmanship upfront and personal is truly a remarkable
event. Hearing the craftsman in the back room working to make the very
items that you could bring home as your Italian souvenirs.
No worries about getting lost trying to find the shops hidden away in the
Le Marche hills as Stefano your driver is a local and knows the roads well.
He will pick you up at the farmhouse at 9 AM and proceed to a local Bar/Cafe
in Tolentino that Krizia owns where you will start the day with the traditional
Italian breakfast of Cafe e Dolci (espresso and sweet roll). You will chat (in english) with
Krizia about which items interest you most and she will plan a route to cover as many
of your preferences as possible.
Then you will head over to Valigeria La Rancia to see their beautiful
luggage, handbags, golf club carrier, wallets, laptop covers etc. Here is a sample
of other manufacturers we will visit:
www.agl.com shoes and purses
www.albertoguardiani.com shoes and purses
www.lanciottideverzi.com shoes & accessories
www.ernestodolani.it men’s shoes
www.amaranti.com women’s shoes
www.manifatturafermana.it hats and scarfs
These are just examples of some of the places you
can go and if you have no preference then she will
just take you to her favorites! We could spend days
just on shoes, purse’s or hats alone and of course
no self respecting Italian with be without their scarf.
You will stop for lunch along the way as Pranza
(lunch/nap time) is extremely important and all the shops
will close from 1 pm-4 pm so we will have a long leisurely lunch with wine
of course unless you prefer otherwise. Please let me know if there are any
dietary restrictions for your group?
After lunch you can visit a local Jewelry Artisan who does unique and
different things which will be available for purchase or you can even orde
custom pieces that he can ship back to the USA for you.
He just happens to be your neighbor in the farmhouse next door but
his studio is 30 mins away in Civitanova. If you not interested in jewellery
then just let Kriza know and she can skip that stop and take you elsewhere.
This day will be customized to your needs and we can stop anywhere you
like and for however long you like. Krizia will have a basic itinerary for the
day but it’s your shopping tour and if you need another espresso or glass of
wine while shopping she can fit that in too.
Please let me know ASAP if you want to add this to your weeks I itinerary
as I need to book the day at least 30 days in advance. Includes the private
van or car, driver, breakfast at Krizia’s Bar, lunch at a wonderful restaurant,
and drop off back to the farmhouse around 6 pm just in time to get ready for
Krizia will be your English speaking guide for the day, she was born here
in Le Marche and is an Architect by profession and Fashion lover by hobby.
She personally owns over 350 pairs of shoes and will help you find the most
beautiful Italian fashions possible to take home with you. Krizia will assist
you with Italian sizing which differs from that in the USA and be there for
translation and negotiation if necessary. She is a dear friend to us and we
could not have possibly survived here in Italy without all her help in the last
