The fashion capital of Italy is known worldwide for its flamboyant annual runway shows. But you don’t need haute couture to have a blast shopping a Milano; the vibrantly diverse shopping scene here runs the gamut from tiny independent boutiques to lavish luxury flagship stores to outlets where you can score top-tier brands at steep discounts. The main shopping hubs in the city include the Quadrilatero d’Oro, as well as the thoroughfares of Via Brera and Corso Buenos Aires. And an absolute must-see (even if you only window-shop) is the neoclassical Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an architectural gem whose soaring domed glass roof coats the expensive shop-fronts inside with golden light.
If you want to enjoy more European culture, enjoy Swiss hospitality – including award-winning cuisine and personal service—on your SWISS flight to Milan.
