Girly weekend: be a shopping queen for a day
As a child my parents often took me to FoxTown, and the shopping centre remains one of my favourite destinations for a day trip with my girlfriends – more often than not to shop until we drop.
After a hearty breakfast, we set out for Mendrisio at about 9.00am. It is worth getting up early to find a parking space and shop in peace (a good alternative is to take the train from Locarno to Mendrisio).
If it is your first time here, I would recommend checking the homepage to find brands that interest you and plan your shopping strategy. There is also information on highly attractive discount campaigns from time to time.
Once you’ve had your fill of trying on clothes, window shopping and buying goods, I recommend stopping for a drink in Melide or heading back to the Hotel Eden Roc for a relaxing foot massage in the Eden Roc Spa.
Where: FoxTown Mendrisio
Getting there: Approximately 45 mins by car (plus time to find a parking space), 1 hour 23 mins by train
Time needed: 4-5 hours, depending on your stamina and budget
Tip: Be sure to visit the homepage for details of special offers: there are some great discount campaigns for limited periods.
