Shopping or Fashion District - CLOSED, Milan
The store name is Kiton store located in via Gesù 11.. It is near four seasons hotel The staff is pretty rude I was resting because of waiting for my friend while he is buying a 1000 euro clothes.. He rudely tap the table where I was resting very loudly it almost broke just to wake me up and laugh while at it.. It almost gave me a heart attack... Don't go here... They look down on you if you only buy one clothes... Good clothes but really bad staff.. The staff doesn't service you unless you wear a tuxedo or something
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.
I looked around in the store and I have to say it 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’t afford a Ferrari but like the brand.
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.
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 .

This is the so-called fashion district of the world's fashion capital - Milan. Situated in the center of the city, quadrilatero della moda has many boutiques and fashion and jewelry shops, attracting many tourists and guests of Milan. It is luckily not necessarily very expensive.
It is useless to say that world's fashion is designed here and now (2011) is a right time to make a good use of price reductions. Due to the global crisis, many of the shops offer great deals on "crisis" prices. You can find all this in Via Monte Napoleone and around.
Three blocks of good bargains. Quite crowded but well worth it if you are looking for shoes, sweaters, purses, etc. and not inclined to pay the high prices in the boutiques. Open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
Address: Viale Papiniano
Directions: Subway Green line - southbound (Abbiategrasso). Stop: San Agostino
Milan is a well known fashion city and it is associated with some of the most famous Italian designers. Walking along Via Napoleone and the surrounding streets you will pass many expensive stores like Gucci, Versace, Valentino, dolce & Gabana etc. Well, you may not just pass them, but enter them, But I didn’t. I had a small hot chocolate at Cova though. It was 10 Euros and that says something about the prices in this district.
Via Napoleone runs parallel to where the old Roman walls used to stand.
Directions: Some blocks northeast of Piazza del Doumo.
Walk, walk and more walk...
It's the only way to see things in Italia. When you come to a store and your eyes turn to the beautiful things to buy.....give in to the feelings and wander wherever your heart or your nose takes you.
Don't fight it! It may never happen again!
Everyone knows that Milan is a fashion capital of Europe and sure enough it must have it's fashion district with top brand flagship stores and. It's between Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga, great to window shopping too.
Directions: The district is north to Duomo
Milan is known as the fashion capital of Italy, so it is the centre of the industry. This is reflected in its glitzy shopping district located in the "Golden Quad" or Quadrilatero d'Oro where many of the original signature shops of top-end Italian designers are found. Gucci, Prada, Versace, and Armani to name a few. Other world-famous designers have a presence here too making the area quite a scene. A stroll down Via Spiga or Via Monte Napoleone, which define the Quad, is essential whether or not one has the extra cash to spend! All those Ferrari owners probably do...
Address: Via della Spiga - Via Monte Napoleone
Only a few meters away from the Central Station you can find a lot of boutiques to get fun buying italian fashion ( and I am not very enthusiastic with "going shopping"). I recommend it if you stop a day in Milan.
If you've come to Milan for clothes shopping, then head to via Montenapoleone, the location of the flagship stores of numerous Italian designers, including Armani, Versace and Prada. Bring your credit card!
Address: Via Montenapoleone and side streets
Directions: Nearest metro: Montenapoleone.
If your credit card is in good status, then Milano is the place to use it and use it untill you get crazy. I can say WOW about fashion shops for men and women in many streets of Milano. I have been there just for this, to rent a car and start cruising around the town to find these elegant fashionable clothes for me and gifts for my loved ones.
Address: Mickel Angelo Street
Milan wasn't at all what I expected. After seeing so many beautiful Italian cities, Milan seemed more like a random Eastern European city. The Duomo is certainly fancy (as they are), but even for fashion (for what Milan is so well known for) I would still prefer to visit Rome. Maybe I just didn't understand this city.
Interesting street for shopping and or seightseeing are :
- Corso Buenos Aires
- Corso Garibaldi
- Corso Porta Ticinese
- Corso Vercelli
- Corso XXII Marzo
- Corso Como
note that it's necessary travel by your own feet along this streets.
Streets are long approximately 1 km
The Corso Buenos Aires is a long wide boulevard stretching from the north of Milan to Porta Venezia. It is reputed to have the most shops per square metre than any other street on the planet, making it the densest shopping street in the world. Certainly if you walk along it you will see shop after shop after shop, with barely a restaurant, bar, or museum in between.
Directions: From the main exit of the station take a left down via Vitruvio, and then take a right onto Corso Buenos Aires.
