A road with lots of expensive shops. Not a place if you do not have a big budget for your shopping. Ther are other places better for shopping.

The place to be for haute couture shopping. Only Paris is up to the challenge as comparison. Lots of security.

If shopping is your thing and you want all the luxury brands then this is the place for you. Hundreds of Asian shoppers can't be wrong!

I suggest to visit this fashion street because of its luxury shop and, in particular, for the people you can find walking: fashionistas, stylists, designers, rich tourists. It's always a magic experience!

Enjoy strolling around with all the brands surrounding you, but if you're not going to buy then there is nothing much to do there MiM

Every designer you can possibly imagine plus many that are not in the United States. The shopping is incredible. The windows are jaw dropping. Even if you can manage to not purchase anything its a delightful experience for anyone to see how the fashion capital of the world represents itself!

All the high end shopping you could wish for and particularly during sale time. The shops and their displays are amazing.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
