  • Clothes - not high fashion: Corso Buenos Aires

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Check out Corso Buenos Aires! Milan`s longest shopping-mile were the Italians shop. But it really can`t be compared to Shopping-Miles in other cities - small, dirty and BROKEN side-walks ABSOLUTLY KILL YOUR FEET and push, loud Italians don`t contribute to the well-being either...Anyway, all "affordable" Fashion brands + italian shops where you find great stuff for little money!

    What to buy: Shoes, Bags, Jewellery, Accessoires

    What to pay: 5-100 Euro

    La Rinascente: Department Store Shopping

    by jlee008 Written Oct 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for something - clothes, shoes, household goods, and just about anything and everything in between, La Rinascente is perfect for you. It is what would be equivalent to any major department store such as Macy's.

    Prices are reasonable, however, it can get pretty expensive for designer items. Sale prices make clothes even more reasonably priced.

    What to buy: Anything on sale. They have weekly sales that really are great. If you spend enough, you can get the tax-free shopping refund right there in the store (don't forget to get your customs stamp before you leave the European Union though). It's a great reason to get perfume and make-up since many of those items never go on sale in the US.

    What to pay: $15 US - over $100 US for clothes
    $35 US - $55 US for perfumes

    (but you can take off the VAT tax and it will save you about 16%)

    La Rinascente: The most famous store in the city

    La Rinascente

    La Rinascente is the most famous store in Milan.
    The name La Rinascente has been creted by D'Annunzio after a big fire that destroyed an old shop here located.
    Here you can find whatever you want, but pay attention many things are more expensive than in other shops!
