My wallet was almost stolen by a middle eastern looking guy. We noticed lots of people bumping us. The place is always full even on a weekday because it is a tourist destination. Keep your belongings safe.

Luxury shopping within the most artistic and beautiful street in Milano. No shopping? No worries! You'll just enjoy walking on those tiles.

What a beautiful piece of architecture to window shop in. I say window shop as buying anything here might require taking out a loan. If you are a fan of designer fashion then you cannot visit Milan without visiting here. Even if you aren't a...More

Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
