With energy restored, why not take advantage of being immersed in the glorious colours of the Mugello landscape, and set off to explore your surroundings? Well known for its nature, everywhere you look you’ll want to pull out your camera, as Renaissance villas, castles and picturesque villas entice you to nestle into the natural paradise. Just a short distance from the Barberino Designer Outlet, you’ll find Barberino di Mugello, Borgo San Lorenzo, San Piero a Sieve, Scarperia, Firenzuola, Palazzuolo sul Senio, Marradi, Vicchio, and Vaglia, oriented around the Sieve River.

Now, with all that motivation, the only thing left to decide is when you’re going to visit! Getting there is easy as a shuttle bus is active every Friday, Saturday and Sunday with three departures per day from Florence’s Santa Maria Novella station, or it’s an easy 30-minute drive from Florence. And you can set your mind at rest, as Covid-19 safety measures ensure your focus will be fully on fashion, and the summer fun ahead.
