Introduction

The most iconic place to shop in Milan is what is called the Quadrilatero della Moda (“Fashion District”), that is, the area comprising Via Montenapoleone, via La Spiga, Corso Venezia and Via Manzoni. It is a mandatory stop for anyone visiting the city, tourists and beyond. Milan is not only the Quadrilatero della Moda, but also great stores, trendy streets and why not, beautiful fairs, where not only Chinese things are found, but also designer clothes and tailoring. Here we find the most famous clothing brands and boutiques in the world, decoration stores, art and antique shops.

1) Where to shop in Milan? VIA MONTENAPOLEONE

Via Montenapoleone is considered Milan’s Fifth Avenue Milanese. The most famous street in the Fashion District is Via Montenapoleone for sure. The name comes from the times of the Napoleonic era, when Milan was already an important business center, but also a place of fun, perdition and pleasure. Once we arrive at this important luxury street in Milan, from the homonymous stop on Line 3 Yellow of the metro, the embarrassment of the choice begins.

Are you looking for clothes and shoes?

The eyes can see all these showcases with wonderful clothes. Are you looking for clothes and shoes? You must enter the showroom of Alberta Ferretti, Armani, Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo or the Brothers Rossetti. Are you looking for jewelry, gems and watches? Visit Cartier, Bulgari, Damiani. They will be at your disposal, the only problem will be your pocket, which will be emptied noticeably. Via Montenapoleone is exactly as imagined, arrogant and snobbish, where the old style goes hand in hand with the concept store.

Here we are in the residential heart of Milan’s upper bourgeoisie. The street also retains important witnesses to the architecture of the second after the war. Very beautiful historic and noble buildings that face the street and that have elegant internal courtyards.

Obligatory passage

It is a must-see when visiting the Italian fashion capital because there are many boutiques of the biggest fashion brands in the world on this street, the witness of a sector that, despite the crisis of those years, continues to carry out a high movement of customers and businesses. Walking and shopping on Via della Spiga is the ultimate experience for those who love luxury, and many Milanese appreciate the particularity of this street that is closed to traffic, and almost prefer Via della Spiga over Via Montenapoleone, the lack of traffic yields it less chaotic and gives it an atmosphere of elegance, intimacy and perfect for shopping. Many of the big names linked to Italian and international fashion have a beautiful and exclusive store or showroom there.
