Italy. Sunglasses, Leather shoes and handbag

Jump to last reply


I will be travelling to Italy next week. Starting from Rome and end in Milan.

Any suggestion where can I buy nice reasonable leather shoes and handbag and sunglasses? Where exactly would be perfect to go and buy? Rome? Florence? Milan? Venice?

Those leather should not been branded items, just genuine leather would be fine.

And as for sunglasses, I'm hoping to get some brand product, like Ray Ban maybe? Since they are expensive here in Egypt, I hope to get a cheaper price there.

Oh, and any recommendation and advice on price of courier I can used to post those items internationally?

and what about VAT, if I ship, does the VAT void?

Also, if this has been covered here before, I apologize for not noticing it. Thanks!
