Shopping in Merano
For Shoppingqueens and shoppaholics
The Portici Arcade is Meranos main shopping street. You will find there everything you desire: from boutiques, stores and groceries to restaurants and cafès, where you can relax with a cup of cappuccino in the elegant atmosphere from merano.
The Portici Arcade delights because of its fusion of historical architecture of the buildings and the modern Boutiques and stores, which are integrated inside.
The kind consulting and service in every store gives it a charming and personal note, that makes the Arcades of Merano even more delightful and admired.
The shops in the Portici Arcade variate between traditional stores, new, modern “chains” and small Boutiques, with the result that after an exciting shopping tour you probably found everything the heart can wish for: the finest Italian shoes, sweet typical south Tyrolian gifts and stunning evening gowns. The merano Arcades are divided in “upper” and “lower” Arcades.
On both sides you equally find stores, Cafés and beautiful restaurants. In the Merano Portici Arcade are also hidden some cultural treasures like the MeranoArt, which is a small Museum with contemporary art in every imaginable form on 3 floors.
The Shops in Merano are open from 9:00 or 9:30 a.m. (variates in base of store) until 19:00 continuously. Some smaller Boutiques are closed for a break from 12.00 to 15.00. The opening hours on Saturday are a little bit different. Most of the stores in Merano are closing a little bit earlier. (17- 18.00) or close already for lunch.
Chains like H&M, Zara etc. are open all day on Saturday and often also on Sunday.
