No vacation in paradise would be complete without a day of shopping, and Naples is sure not to disappoint. Whether you're looking for antiques or that new designer handbag, one of Naples' more than 30 shopping centers is bound to have it.

A few hours among the restaurants and local shops will show you why Fifth Avenue is known as the Heart of Naples. As you stroll down its banyan-laced sidewalks to admire the Mediterranean architecture, browse the various galleries, wineries, and clothing shops that line the streets. Fifth Avenue is also just a few blocks away from our famous beaches.

If you really want to experience the Naples of old, then you should check out Third Street South, Naples' oldest commercial district. Look for the latest fashions and accessories at Marissa Collections, sample an island meal at Tommy Bahama or outfit your table with the finest in flatware from Christotle. The winding avenues include some spectacular art galleries and any number of surprisingly beautiful shops.

Before you leave, make sure you also stop by the upscale Waterside Shops for some of the finest designer-brand retailers from around the world. Featuring 60 major-name and local retailers set among cascading waterfalls and captivating architecture, Waterside is bound to impress even the most discerning customer. You might also want to explore the Village on Venetian Bay, a quaint collection of nearly 60 shops situated directly on the waterfront. And, of course, if you're in the mood for the traditional mall experience, look no further than the Coastland Center, home to over 150 stores, and adding more all the time.

You should have no trouble finding that perfect souvenir to bring back to your friends and family.
