Shopping Tips (10)

Via Bagutta

Favorite thing Just paralel to Vittorio Emanuele, Via bagutta is full of painters to display their wonderful art pieces..

When you reached the end of the Vittorio emanuele street, you will see a fountain in front and just turn left and the first road on the left is via bagutta.

Just enjoy your day and fancy the shopping mania..

Italian strawberries

Favorite thing I have a "thing" for strawberries :-) On our walks in and around Milan we came acoss some markets where they sold fruits and vegetables. I had to try out the Italian strawberries of course but I have to say that the Norwegian berries are better :-)

Gli Milanesi Hanno Stile, Questo è Sicuro.

Favorite thing Yes, the Milanesi have got style, that's a fact!

Er, I know some people will disagree with me but really, the Italians by nature are born with style - with a capital 'S'.

When an Italian has Euros in his bank - preferably banking with Unicredito Italiano... my favorite bank ;-) he can enter another realm of the style universe. Well, the Italian PM, Silvio Berlusconi oozes with charisma and is without a doubt the best dressed head of state in the world. (Relax OK. He didn't bribe me to write this about him).

It won't be long before Ermenegildo Zegna Uomo Moda line names an exclusive clothing range after him! ;-) Zegna sells the best tailored suits for men in the world. You can fish a man in a Zegna suit a mile away. Yes, well-tailored suits sure maketh a man.

Fondest memory I have so many fond memories of Milan and no amount of adjectives can fully describe this fabulous city and my feelings for this place. Should I start writing, I'll surely rave on about Milan... and VT would soon ban me from over-writing (!!).

Fashion Week Milan - Milano Moda

Favorite thing Since Milan is THE fashion capital of the world, why not coincide your trip with the Milano Moda (Milan Fashion Week)?

Twice a year, Milan plays host to two of the biggest and most important fashion shows in the world. This is when you'd see the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Esther Canadas, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, et al fly in to Milan and strut their stuff on the catwalk. Guys: Are you writing all this down? ;-))
These are called "fashion week" and the first is usually held the last week of February and contains all the latest woman's fashion collections that you and I will eventually wear for the Summer.

The second is held in the last week of September and first week of October and exhibits the New Woman's Winter Fashion Collections. Milano Moda as it is known turns the eyes of the world on Milan and as a consequence it is very difficult to find good quality accommodation during this period.

So, if you guys still want to visit Milan during this period - please book your hotel accommmodation way, way in advance. OK?

Fondest memory Fondest memory? Are you kidding me? Bumping into all these supermodels and Milanese women on the streets of Milan, you need to be very confident of yourself and your feminine qualities (ahem...)... otherwise, you'd surely fall into depression.

Guys are known to get terribly distracted during this period too.

Favorite thing A big, sprawling industrial city, Milan is not the most attractive of Italian cities, but it is a city of style. Its a shoppers dream - as one of the wealthiest cities it has everyhuitng and more you would want from a major city, plus it is home to many of the major fashion houses in the world.

Go shopping!!! Or at least...

Favorite thing Go shopping!!! Or at least window shop for the most part. Shopping in Milan is a full experience in itself. One of the main shopping areas to visit is Via Montenapoleone. The Rodeo Drive of Milan! Armani opened up his 4-story mega store on the Via Manzoni, which is around the corner from Montenapoleone. All the famous designer houses fall along this boulevard. Go there just to experience and smell the expensive leather goods! Then hop the metro and head out to the Milano stock houses outside the city where things are more affordable!

Milan is home to many, many factory outlets known as 'stock houses' where the designer goods that don't make it to the Boulevard Montenapoleone or the Via Spiga, are transferred and sold for much, much less! You can get the REAL Prada, Gucci, and Dolce and Gabbana goods here at much better prices than department stores.

A great link on the web for a list of these places is at:

Milan gives you a chance to 'look' like a supermodel without spending like one!

Fondest memory One of my fondest memories was strolling down the via Montenapoleone, window shopping and daydreaming....then suddenly we were hit with a hail storm coming out of nowhere!

That didn't stop the shoppers though! The men and women just grabbed their Celine and Ferragamo shopping bags and used them as head covers!

Favorite thing The shopping, probably one of the reasons why you decide to come here to the capital of fashion.

Fondest memory The best area is Corso Vercelli, full of shops. The centre is really ok to walk but doesn't have shops where you can really can find good quality.
Via dante is ok too.
Corso Buenos Aires is mainly CRAP.

Favorite thing If you like vintage and old things there is a very famous market called 'Senigallia fair', where it is possible to find everything you could ever think, except food. It's just on Saturdays, all day long. If you think to go there, just be advised against bringing with you wallet, mobile or whatever of a certain value.

Corso Italia

Favorite thing try to explore the streets in the city center - during the daytime they will be full of office clerks but during the evening you might not meet anyone.
