The beautiful weather in Naples allows us to enjoy shopping, and dining outdoors nearly year-round. Mercato Naples is no exception. This shopping area becomes a hub of activity during season. Whether you come for lunch, happy hour, or dinner, you will find hustle and bustle abound. The center is home to residential spaces housed above the shops and restaurants, for the privileged few who can afford them. There is a high-end movie theater, Silver Spot, showing the latest movies and allowing you to dine and watch.
The real highlight of Mercato is the variety of dining options. There are currently 22 places to dine including frozen yogurt shops, bars, sit-down restaurants, and fast casual dining spots.

3: Waterside Shops
Shopping as an art form. From the moment you hand your keys to the valet and enter Waterside Shops your senses pique to discover something new. The sounds of water fountains, the sight of beautiful sculptures and architectural elements, and the scent of thousands of flowering tropical plants create an irresistible allure. Naples’ premier shopping destination is a luxurious environment befitting the boutique shops of Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Gucci and more. Here, shopping becomes an inviting experience that reflects the contemporary and sophisticated style of Naples. Stately royal palms grace the entryways and burst of color spill from enormous decorative bases that represent the 12 months of the year with delicately painted images. A series of hand-crafted crystals cubes beam a colorful solar system pattern from their perch in one of five water fountains throughout Waterside Shops. A hand-laid stone wall curves through the center, dotted by scuppers splashing water into brilliant blue tiled pools.
Glass-lined bridges carry shoppers conveniently across the waters to their desired stores. Seating areas allow you to relax and enjoy the Florida climate as well as the shopping and dining experience of Waterside Shops. Twilight turns on towering lights to shine leafy vine-like patterns everywhere. The dramatic look to the architecture, landscaping and water activity in the evenings serves as an ideal backdrop for continued dining and shopping, or even the backdrop for a memorable charitable event, making it a perfect way to see your desires elevated at Waterside Shops.
