It’s no mystery that Americans love to shop. Fortunately for those assigned to Aviano Air Base, the area has tons of retail options.
The Cone Shopping Center, located off route SS13 in the town of Conegliano, Italy, is a medium-sized mall. The shopping center is only a 45-minute drive from Aviano Air Base.
This shopping center is typically quiet and features stores like H&M and Foot Locker. It also offers standalone retail shops like Trony, a family clothing store; Maisons Du Monde, a home furnishings store; and Cisalfa Sport, a sporting goods store, located near the main mall building.
Other stores include Ipercoop, a large supermarket; Scarpe and Scarpe, a well-known Italian shoe store; and Conbipel, which sells clothing and accessories for men, women and children.
The mall also offers an affordably priced child care center where parents can drop off their children while they shop.
The mall hosts many family-oriented events throughout the year such as a haunted house for Halloween, a Christmas Village during the holiday season, and children’s shows like Power Rangers and My Little Pony.
The mall also rents out exhibition space inside the gallery.
