The fountain-fronted mall echoes a Renaissance-era Italian town with confetti-colored replica merchants’ houses, colonnades, and bridges flanking two levels of tiled walkways and airy piazzas. Visitors can delve into a range of upmarket shops, including brands such as Armani Jeans, Mango, Diesel, Gap, and Nike; as well as cosmetics, jewelry, gifts, toy, and homeware retail chains and emporiums. Cafés, ice cream parlors, and dining spots serving international cuisine provide the finishing touches, as do a Spinneys supermarket, 7-screen VOX cinema, and a family games-and-entertainment center.
One option for those wanting to experience the Mercato Shopping Mall is to take a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Buses along selected routes stop at nearby City Walk, about a 15-minute walk away.
