If you like Ferrari then do not miss their shop in the Montenapoleone elite shopping area on Piazza Liberty. The store is in a five storey building whose interiors contain sales area and an exhibition illustrating the famous automobile maker's history.
The store is very impressive; it is definitely not a two-dollar shop, it is rather a candy shop … it is difficult to walk out without buying something. The shop is designed to appeal largely to people who can not afford a Ferrari but like the brand.
What to buy: It is the best place for a windows-shopping, or if you are really brave you might even buy something. I myself bought nothing, and would recommend you to take a look without buying what you do not need and do not want, simply enjoy.
What to pay: The cheapest item is a €6 ($10) sticker, but a realistic professionally assembled 1/12 scale model of the Ferrari Enzo Street 2002 is already €300 ($500).
The most expensive was a Ferrari road car with a top speed of 350kph +, 0-100kph in 3.65 seconds, 0-200kph in 9.5 seconds!!... and the price, €700,000.

We wandered through this shop and nearly had to put the sunglasses on as some of the clothes were so bright!
We generally looked around but found most things too expensive to even think about buying.

You will see on the street many young men selling purses, billfolds, jewelry, watches and other small items that they can pick up and take quickly. I say quickly because when the local police come into the area they grab everything and move away.
Many of these items for sale are fakes made in Asia. So that fancy purse that is being sold for such a great price, is not really such a deal if you want to original designer purse.
It won't do any good to ask them if it is real or not, and if you act interested they will try to pull you into a "deal". Best thing is to ignore them.
What to buy: This Foto below is of the famous, well photographed Fashion Area of Milano. When you see the real thing, up close and personal, it doesn't look so fancy.

If Lake Como is in your itinerary (I believe it should be, Como is a must actually) the following outlet in Mendrisio Switzerland will only be an additional 15 minute drive from Como. You will be crossing the border so, make sure you have your passports with you (and a valid visa that allowes multiple entries to Italy). It is called foxtown and they have all the outlets of the "big players".

A friend suggested not to miss FNAC, which is a department store catering for all tastes in music, dvds and a great internet cafe on the top floor.
They also have a huge range of computers and electronics, TV and books.
Needless to say I spent a lot of time in the store and brought home some of my favourite music which is not available in Australia!!
How to break the bank in a hurry! Wish I'd had more time....
What to buy: Anything electronic or music, etc.
What to pay: How deep is your pocket or how big is your wallet??
