The Oriocenter in Bergamo: my day of shopping in more than 200 shops!
The Oriocenter in Bergamo. Have you ever been to the Oriocenter, the big shopping centre in Bergamo, which is just next to the Orio al Serio airport? If your answer is no, you absolutely have to go. If you do know it, I’m sure you’ll agree with what I’m about to say. The Oriocenter is a gigantic shopping centre (definitely one of the biggest in Italy). It really is a shopping paradise: basically if you’re looking for a particular shop or item of clothing, you’ll find it here… and more. It’s a pretty crazy place. You can go from Zara, Bershka, Mango, Pull & Bear, Jennifer, OVS, Stradivarius, Motivi and all the other fashion chains that you can possibly think of, to shops such as Negozi Pellizzari, Imperial, Pandora, Swarovski, Hollister, Diesel, Replay, Timberland, Iper and MediaWorld, and so on and so forth. There are hundreds of beauty and make up shops, from MAC to Sephora, and also Kiko, Lush, Madina, Douglas, Erbolario, Bottega Verde, plus sports shops such as Universo Sport and Nike as well as book shops and other services (for example a really cheap tailors that can do any tailoring job super quickly while you’re out shopping, which I think is great!). If you’re then in need of a break, the only problem is choosing where to eat from the enormous range of options: from sushi to pizza, burgers to ravioli, meat to puddings.
The Oriocenter in Bergamo: the #ORIOSTYLE feature with all the items of clothing I chose!
If you still haven’t visited this shopping centre, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to go round it. It’s worth it! A little while ago I was invited by the Oriocenter, where I discovered something which I already suspected to be true: shopping really does burn calories! We walked more than 10km in one day of shopping at the Oriocenter (I told you it was enormous!). My task? To go round all the shops and choose for you guys the trendiest looks, for both girls and boys. I chose outfits for 4 occasions: elegant, travel, casual and sporty. Are you curious? If you look at the #ORIOSTYLE feature on the Oriocenter Facebook page, you’ll find all the items of clothing I chose! In today’s post, however, you can see a bit of the behind-the-scenes action from my day at the centre… already caught your attention? See you soon!
