Shopping in Naples
There's so many fabulous things I love about Naples and things I'd recommend, I wouldn't know where to start. One of the things I enjoy most, is the shopping in Naples.
I can't really say I have a favorite Naples shopping spot because each I love each one for a different reason!
Tin City is close to Downtown Naples, and is a fun place to spend a morning. I love to wander through the unique little shops along the boardwalk. The cookie store and ice cream store are 'must visits'! There's a great store that sells wonderful creams, soaps and lotions that I'd recommend too. Riverwalk or Pincher's are fun places for lunch. You can see boats departing and landing, as well as fishermen along the docks on the other side. The Naples Princess also docks across the way from Tin City too.
The Waterside Shops are really gorgeous with the urban style, very chic architecture and water features. There are plenty of high-end chain stores, as well as some unique shops. Favorite store? Beach House of Naples! Great swim wear! For lunch or dinner? All restaurants are marvelous. I highly recommend Brio Tuscan Grille, esp for happy hour drinks and appetizers! The Silver Spoon Cafe is also good too.
Venetian Village is an wonderful array of shops, on the scenic Venetian Village! There are rustic covered walkways which meander throughout the village and lead to the shops. There's sometimes live entertainment which is really great to watch.
Maybe the best shopping in Naples is on Fifth Ave!!!! What an experience! Fifth Ave. is lined with fantastic shops, boutiques and restaurants. Blocks and blocks of wonderful shopping!
Where to eat? Wow. There's so many to choose from! I esp. love Chops City Grill. The food is always good and I find the service to be consistent too.
Third Street South isn't far from 5th and also has lots of shops and restaurants. I like Tommy Bahamas for lunch out on the patio.
There's also the Coastland Center which is Naples only mall. There's lots of popular chain stores and lots of seating and snack places, if there are non-shoppers in your group!
There's also Mercato and Bayfront. Both very high-end shopping venues.
If you love shopping, you'll love shopping in Naples! It is without a doubt a shopping meca! For a shopping diva like me? It's heavenly!!!
