Downtown Athens is crawling with top retail brands for you to choose from, but you wouldn’t want to miss local handmade souvenirs either. If your time in the Greek Capital is limited, you might want to head down to The Golden Hall, one of Athens’ top malls. We’ll leave it up to you to decide how it got its name…

Rome, Italy

Three words: Galleria Alberto Sordi. You’re welcome.

Valletta, Malta


The Mediterranean’s smallest capital gives you an endless choice of retail outlets from clothing stores to authentic Maltese food stores. To make sure you don’t miss anything, we suggest a quick ferry ride to Sliema for the best bargains at one of the shopping mecca’s top malls.

Istanbul, Turkey

If you’re looking for something other than the traditional retail experience, Istanbul is the place for you. Many travelers have already dubbed Turkey as one of the best places for shopping thanks to its choice of traditional bazaars, chic boutiques and open-air markets. You can always pop by the Mall of Istanbul if you the ethnicity of it all still isn’t for you.
