You may already be planning your next year’s shopping trips to Italy. I am aware of this as a few people have contacted me to inquire when the summer and winter sale dates will be posted.

July 2016 Update This is the site I use to track sale dates. Check out this page for more information about each region and individual cities (if there are any). It’s in Italian so you need to be familiar with the names of cities and regions.

Here is the overview of regional sales dates that I posted while waiting for the other site update.

ControCampus compiled this list in Italian. I have translated it. These dates can be changed, but they should give you an idea of when to plan your shopping trips in Italy in 2016.

You can read more about what the sales seasons are all about in my article on the official Sales in Italy.

  • Rachana says:

    Please tell me when the Florence summer sales will start. Is there a mall in Florence?

    • Jess has the following:

      Florence is located in Tuscany so it will be covered under that region. There are many sales dates for cities, but I have not yet found an official listing. So, use the above listing to get an idea of the general structure.

  • Georgia seimeni says:

    I would like to find out when the summer sale 2016 officially begins in Milan.

    • Jess has the following:

      Yes, Georgia! That’s a very popular question right now. Unfortunately, the site that many of us use to find sales dates has not updated its information for summer 2016. This is the most accurate list I found online.

      • Alex:

        Jessica, Are there any updates on the official website where you get your information for the July 2016 summer sales in Milan? Please, could you direct me to your site?

        • Jess has the following:

          I don’t know of anything more. You can find the link to the site I use in the article at the top.

          • Jay:

            Hi! The site you mentioned has 2016 dates, if you scroll down further

          • Jess has the following:

            Although the 2016 winter dates are available, it seems that they have changed the 2015 summer heading. The dates for each row still state 2015.

  • Michelle says:

    Jessica, Hi

    This is the official information regarding the Milan summer sale 2016.

    “Lombardy

    * Lombardy Summer Sales: Starts on June 6th & Lasts for 60 Days”

    It’s a question I have because I am planning a shopping trip. Thansk! !

    • Jess has the following:

      Michelle, thank you for your note! This is the best information that I could find on ControCampus. It was the only place that provided updated sales information. My favorite website is still not updated for summer, despite the fact that it’s summer! For shopping-related trips, I recommend you contact the Milan tourism office to obtain the most exact dates. The dates for each city may be slightly different from those of the region.

  • Patricia says:

    Do I have any sales opportunities while I’m in italy between 22 and 29 June? ??? ?

    We are grateful

    • Jess has the following:

      Based on the information I have, the dates are all listed above. The sales will not start until July.

  • sanne says:

    I will be going to Florence in August and wanted to know how long the sale has been ongoing.

    Thanks!

    • Jess has the following:

      This is the site I use to track sale dates. It was FINALLY updated for summer 2016. Please check the dates on this page for information about both city and region (if there is a difference).

  • nat says:

    Hi, I would like to know if the Summer Sale in Florence (looking at Tuscany), ends 60 days after its start date?
