doing shopping in milan, the city of shops and fashion As Milan is THE CITY of fashion there are lots of places to go shopping, especially for shopping deluxe, e.g. Via Montenapoleone (Gucci, Versace, Fratelli Rossetti, Prada, Cartier etc.), Via della Spiga (D&G, Sergio Rossi, Tod's, Bulgari etc.) Via Sant'Andrea (Chanel, Armani, Moschino, Kenzo etc.), Via Manzoni, Via Borgospesso and Via Santo Spirito. The elegant Via Manzoni is home to Spazio Armani at no. 31. This is the Giorgio Armani multi-concept store where you can admire the Emporio Armani showrooms, Armani casa, and Armani fiori. You can also have an aperitif at the Emporio Armani Cafè or spend an evening at the restaurant Nobu, with a dinner by the best Japanese chef to emerge in the last 10 years: Nobuyuki Matsuhisa who opened this chain of restaurants together with Robert de Niro.


Around Milan you can go shopping at the outlet malls to have the same luxury feeling with all those designer brands but for less money. Sales take place in July and in January. The winter sales usually begin on 7th January.

Outlets and Fashion Malls in Italy If you like Italian Fashion brands discover Outlets in Italy, a very useful resource where you can find your favorite Mall and Outlet in Milan and in the surrounding area (Fashion Outlets in Lombardy), and all the Factory Outlets in Italy.

And don't forget that at only 1 hour from Milan you can find the Fidenza Village Factory Outlet, a big outlet with 50 stores: from clothing to home furnishing brands.

To go shopping without spending all your money there are four important streets in Milan: Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Corso Buenos Aires, Via Torino and Corso di Porta Ticinese.


Corso Vittorio Emanuele with Piazza San Babila, starts with the department store Rinascente, the monument to Milanese shopping that owes its name to Gabriele d'Annunzio. In Corso Vittorio Emanuele there are sophisticated label shops, such as Max Mara, Moreschi, Bruno Magli and Pollini, but there are also more popular labels such as H&M, Zara and Furla.


Corso Buenos Aires, that is one of the longest streets in Europe, connects Porta Venezia with Piazzale Loreto and it is even more commercial: there are Timberland, Mandarina Duck, Benetton, Kookai and Nara Camice.


Via Torino connects the Duomo and Corso di Porta Ticinese, is more for younger people and the casual style is sportier, with Foot Looker, Camper and Energy stores.


The closer you come to the Navigli area, which is the temple of street-style, the more the store scenario varies.


Corso di Porta Ticinese, which becomes Via Torino that takes you right up to Piazza XXIV Maggio, is the right place for those “alternative” purchases: Custo–Barcellona, Diesel, Miss Sixteen, Gas and Fornarina stand alongside second-hand clothes shops, stores with bizarre objects for the home, handmade clothes and accessory stores.
