Milan Shopping Tips by leffe3
Milan Shopping: 141 reviews and 140 photos
A great location for everyday shopping is the Corso Buenos Aires. A wide, busy street, it's everything you need from a high street - clothes, shoes, accessories, department stores, cafes, DVD and music shops etc...
Beauty of C. Buenos Aires is that mixed in with the everyday are shops that sell those 'labels' - and chances are that you may get them a little cheaper than in the Fashion District itself.
What to buy: Lots on offer
What to pay: Wide range
Address: Corso Buenos Aires
Directions: More than 1 kilometre long, with Porta Venezia to the south and Loreto to the north, with Line 1 following the route underground. Metro station Lima is approximately half way between the two.
Milan is a magnet for fashion-buyers and designer labels. The Via Montenapoleone and immediate surrounds is the home of most of the great labels of the world, where you can virtually walk out of Dolce & Gabbana and into Versace and then onto Armani, and on ... and on ... and on.
It's a beautiful little area (bounded by Via Gesu, Via Andrea, Via Gesù, Via Borgospesso, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia) of discrete shops and narrow streets, although needless to say it can pretty busy.
What to buy: Labels :) Shoes, clothing, accessories...
What to pay: A lot :)
Address: Via Montenapoleone
Directions: Metro San Babila (at the southern end of Via Montenapoleone) on Line 1 (red) or Montenapoleone itself on Line 3 (yellow) to the north.
