Shopping in Napoli... - Page 2

post #16 of 30
No problem, actually now that I checked, the web site of Time Out > Naples contains several addresses you may find useful. Anna Matuozzo, Marinella and Mario Talarico included.

Thanks for mentioning my blog - I am planning to upload an updated version - in English this time.

The map is very handy, thanks. I printed it and used it on my recent trip through Naples. OP, the shops around Chiaia -- Marinella, Cappelli, Attolini, Finamore, Rubinacci, Milord --really are quite close to each other. Cappelli can be a bit tricky to find, as it's located on what is, in effect, the back side of a palazzo. But ask around, it's worth the visit.

Especially when it comes to shopping in Napoli. In many places, especially smaller ones, they don't even understand what you are asking for.

dave smith - the addresses online are the addresses you need. I did an shopping trip to napoli twice in the past two months and got the addresses from the websites and marked them on a map when I got to naples. Walked to those addresses and the stores were there.

There are tons of boutique stores in Naples that carry finamore and everything else that are just regular stores that aren't emphasized or known on SF (or really in Naples) and you should go into those. They have stuff you'd want at solid (not deep discount) pricing.

Unless you are going bespoke, you can often find better pricing in America, as previously mentioned.

The boutiques are just along every street - no specific addresses. Walk around, you'll run into them.

Don't bother with the big internationalized brands like Attolini and Finamore.

I think November is a wonderful time to go. It isn't that cold. So what if you get a little bit f rain? I love traveling in the late fall and before Christmas especially in Italy. There are no crowds, and you can go most places without a reservations. Have a great time.

you'll find great stuff in naples if you are thorough. I got great shirts. Not inexpensive, but great regardless. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
