Where to go shopping in Milan

Milan is right up there with London and Paris when it comes to Europe’s premier shopping destinations, but this Northern Italian powerhouse does things a little differently. The Milanese love to splash the cash on looking good, and the old adage of ‘when in Rome, do as the Romans’ can probably be replicated here; when in Milan, try to look as good as the Milanese. No easy task, but effort counts. Milan is a ‘shop til you drop’ sort of place, although you’ll be expected to pick yourself up and shop a little more. It isn’t all about the big names, visitors will find a thriving boutique and independent shopping world, and our guide to the best shopping in Milan will help uncover those spots. Much like its restaurant scene, shopping in Milan is a ‘something for everyone’ experience that ticks all the boxes.

Gastronomic greatness is found across the city, from neighbourhood trattorias to high-end Michelin magic.
