Via Monte Napoleone is in the heart of fashionable Milan. It is a hop and skip from via della Spiga, and part of the few blocks that house the haute couture and fashion industry of the city. It is a short street and it follows the original Roman city walls. While it suffered significant damage during allied bombings during World... More

If you look for a fancy shopping area this is it! All together just few steps away to cover almost all big international high end brands.

We were disappointed because we were expecting more. Even the high end shop windows seemed drab. It is a popular destination, but everyone seemed to be going somewhere else

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.

GREAT TO WALK IT. LIKE Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Madison Ave., New York or Paris. But you can get better prices in the US except on sale days- earlyJuly in Milan

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

Great street to go up and down or just window shop. Very clean and safe with plenty of choices to pick from. Go ready to spend.

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.
