This is the avenue of the biggest brands, shop with the work of the greatest designers in Italy, opulence, majestic products, music in the street ( when you hear "What a wonderful world" you trully feel it) ....if you can't afford to buy anything, no worries, a simple walk on this boulevard will make you feel like a million dollars.

If you love good things in life, fashion, fats cars, good food, great pastries, you can’t miss this street it’s a high end showroom. Even if you cannot afford to buy them you can at least enjoy looking at them, or you can enjoy aperitivo at “Cova”.

High end labels are usually found either along high-end streets (Champs Elysess, 5th Ave, etc) or department stores that make me feel uncomfortable upon entry as they all feel incredibly pretentious. This place is different, as the shops are located along the quaint roads of "Quadriletero d'Oro" with Via Monte Napoleone being the most glorious (housing Hermes, Prada, Fendi, etc)... More

Located in the heart of the city, this has been in the last two centuries the center of the Milan wealth and of the luxury craft. The building themselves are still wonderful but the street has a different "value" today. The famous shops of artisans, goldsmiths and jewelers in particular, have been replaced by high-fashion shops, often foreigners. Today, passing... More

In a beautiful and old street, you will see so many high-end, expensive, well known brand names that eventually they all flow into each other. It becomes a blur of famous names. Just window shopping is an event by itself, most of these shops have spent fortunes in decorations and design, and gawking at them is a fun activity (and... More

If you're into high fashion this is thee area for purchase or window shopping! A lot of great designers in one location most well known and some obscure! Even if you're not planning on purchasing anything I think this area at least deserves a walk through you know...Milan being one of the fashion capitals and all...
