Il Centro Commerciale Metropolis in Rende, Cosenza

When I was in Italy I didn’t do a tonne of shopping.  Most of the time it was so hot, that the thought of shopping outdoors was just not very appealing.  We did hit up the outdoor mercato in Rogliano and cruised the outdoor shops of Corso Mazzini a few times.

But, I quickly found out that it is possible to cure the shopping bug even on the hottest Calabrian summer day.  I’d like to introduce you to Il Centro Commerciale Metropolis.

Metropolis is in every sense of the word a “shopping city“.  It is one of the biggest, if not the largest, shopping centre in Calabria and is located in Rende, Cosenza (a stone’s throw away from the city of Cosenza).

Metropolis offers 2 levels of indoor shopping, underground parking, and a pretty good variety of shops including Carpisa, Sephora, Foot Locker, Media World, and Bata.  Oh, and let’s not forget the most important thing, it is air-conditioned!  It also, on occasion, hosts concerts and other outdoor events in its large piazza out front.

So, if you find yourself in Cosenza, or nearby and want to get some shopping in, check out Metropolis located on Viale Kennedy in Rende, Cosenza. It is open daily from 9:00am – 9:00pm except Monday’s when it’s open from 2:00pm – 9:00pm.
