Shopping Desenzano del Garda


In Desenzano del Garda there are 2 main shopping areas. First, the centre of town and then the shopping mall, le Vele. Then we have a market every Tuesday morning.

The Centre Shopping area

The most apparent shops in down town Desenzano are high end designer shops in clothing, shoes and accessories. Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry´s, Cavalli etc. etc. If you want to spend some serious money here, you can;) If you want to spend a little less in your trip you also have good quality medium range stores such as Benetton for example. Then you also have more economic choices down to a "Everything for 15 euros" store.

Desenzano Centre

The usual pharmacies, banks, icecreamstores, bookstores, postoffice, kiosks are in the centre as well.

The Market

Every Tuesday morning you have a Market in Desenzano and people all over the Lake Garda are come and shop around. Also many German people come over the Alps on Tuesdays for a late "Sunday drive" taking the day off.

The Shopping Mall

It is a just under medium size shopping mall with some very interesting stores. You have some good bargain stores here, including a huge shoe store (football field sized), clothes and accessories store, electronics store, household store, toystore, supermarket and a two story athletics/sport store. Then you have the "normal" shopping mall stores such as eyewear, middle prices fashion shops, accessories, a cafeteria with light meals and a fast food restaurant. Then you have an interesting choice for you all that like designer high end clothing but you want to limit your spending?. A designer Outlet with 50% off prices, Magazzini di Firme!
