Jan 2015. Don't remember what we bought if we did, but I thought is was a really lovely European taken on a mall! I had arrived just before Milan Fashion Week, and they were setting up all over the city. That trip I saw many parts of the Luigeria region and nearby, Milan, Florence, Pisa, Aulla, LA Spezia. So quaint... More

This is the major shopping street of Milan, connecting San Babila and Duomo, not only for high fashion, but also some well known brands. There are nice buildings on the way too, especially church of San Carlo.

A walk through this street between Saint Babila and Duomo metro provides a great shopping street, not too expensive and a good mix of shops. Along this street, there were entertainers, break dancing, gymnastics, ball artist. A very busy street with regular shoppers. At the end near Babila metro you can turn left into the rich shopping street.

This area runs from the Duomo and has some impressive buildings and some fairly high priced shops and one of two department stores that are fairly average.Even if you are not shopping it certainly is worth a visit.

Corso Vittorio Emanuelle connects the Piazza del Duomo with Piazza Sant Babila, and it represents one of the major shopping streets intown. Not as high end as Via Montenapoleone or via della Spiga, it has a multitude of stores, chops and boutiques. Clothing, shoes, gloves, books, gelato, coffee, undergarments, hats, whatever you are looking for, you will find here. It... More

My girlfriends and I had a Fabulous visit in Milano during Fashion Week, and did a lot of damage to our credit cards as well. One of our favorite places while in Milano was Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. Its a beautiful shopping area with amazing cafes and amazing architecture.

This is a great street with amazing shopping and stores featuring local designers that's probably more accessible to the general public rather than Via Monte Napoleone which features more international designer stores.

While waiting for our dinner reservation time, we walked through the air conditioned, covered mall checking out the numerous stores, restaurants, and cafes. The only negative is there are many vendors trying to sell unsuspecting visitors unwanted flowers, trinkets, and junk, sometimes by putting it in the visitors' hands.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood 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.
