Most of us won't shop here, but it's worth visiting and strolling down the street to view and appreciate what goes into the fashion industry here. The window dressing, the designs, the care to details is admirable and in my opinion a tourist attraction on its own.

This is very close to the cathedral, opera house, Galleria and other attractions, so take a little extra time, walk a few extra blocks and take a look at some of the best examples of visual merchandising and store design that you will ever see, as well as a lot of high fashion. There are very few places in the... More

We always venture down this high end street whenever we are in Milan. Being the Holidays it was so festive with all of its lights and sounds! You better bring you wallet though!

Get yourselves a big suitcase if you're going to this famous street of couture and labels! Don't forget to take a photo of you on this street as well. It looks lovely with all the lights lit up in Christmas.

OK,to begin with... Think about all the expensive high fashion tags you know. ALL of them have a store in or around Via Monte Napoleone! Of course they are expensive stores and of course we all know that. A beautiful area where you can find beautiful stores, where there are guards at the entrance of every store! So if you... More

It's a nice street filled with all kinds of art. Also home to the Armani café and bookstore. A few minutes away from Duomo and Brera by walking.

For me, fashion is pure art and not just something you wear, so Via Monte Napoleone is more of a beautiful museum for me than just a shopping place. I love the sophistication of Armani dresses and suits, the bright and bold colors of Versace, the timeless elegance and super quality of Ferragamo shoes (I am biased here - shoes... More

This is the most exclusive street in Milan where most of the top luxury brands have their stores also on nearby Via Sant Andrea and Via Spiga. If not for actually buying at least it makes a good and short window-shopping stroll to see the best of Milanese fashion. When I visited in early January there were a lot if... More

Let's see... The duration a visit there would depend on the size of your pocket! If you are traveling on a budget, make sure you take a look at the windows of the shops. Only the major top-luxury brands have a shop here and the queues of Japanese buyers could become really long during the Sales. Only one recommendation: don't... More
