Shopping in Italy is a reason to come to the country in of itself. It is common knowledge that Italians love fashion and because of that, there are no shortages of great shops, boutiques, and full-blown malls. Aside from clothing, most tourists love stocking up on the incredible wine and gastronomic pleasures that are available in abundance in Italy, such as great olive oils, spices, and cured meats.

Bergamo stays true to Italian form and is stocked with shopping opportunities. In fact, just outside of the city is Italy's largest shopping center. The Orio Commercial Center has more than 200 stores to choose from among restaurants, bars, a grocery store, and great views! You can get just about anything you are after at this mall.

You may want to consider getting the free Bergamo Tourist card that is available at the Orio al Serio International Airport. The card can present tourists with special discounts and promotions when shopping 

You will find many boutiques and great pastry and food shops throughout the city of Bergamo. Bergamo is particularly known for its sweet cakes and delicacies in the pastry stores. If you are still hungry for more, Milan is a paradise for shopping and is only about an hour away by bus, train, or car.
