An Unrivaled Experience

Keen shoppers from the world over love the thought of trips to Milan. Why is the Italian destination so popular with the cream of the shopping crop? The answer is simply because it is home to so many fabulous designer boutiques and shopping experiences. Milan is a beacon for stylish shoppers, meaning it’s the ideal holiday destination for anyone hopping to indulge their shopping habits in the most luxurious and desirable way possible.

As the home of Armani and Versace, Milan’s fashion credentials are clear to see, so take a trip to this stunning city to drape yourself in some of the hottest styles around next time you feel the urge for shopping trip. If you’re a real label-lover, then the pinnacle of your shopping experience in Milan is likely to be found in the Quadrilatero d’Oro – Golden Quad – area. Here you’ll find massive names like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Prada and Valentino too all in one divine square of shopping heaven. It’s also a great place just to have a wander around, even if the designer names are a little out of your price range.

For mid-price of high street shopping as well as some of Milan’s bigger names, you can take a trip to the lovely Galleria Vittorio Emanuele – a 19th century shopping mall that’s been beautifully preserved – or to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a covered shopping street packed with popular international brands.

However, not all shoppers taking a trip to Milan have their heart set on bagging some designer clothes or new outfits – the city is also an excellent place to find gorgeous antique markets offering a luxurious way to furnish your home as well as a whole range of bustling street markets that add a little oomph to the shopping experience. If you’re good at haggling, you’ll certainly find yourself more at home on the markets, and you could get your hands on some quality fashion wear too. However, you should be aware that the big names you find on market staffs are very likely to be fakes.

With such a strong pedigree in shopping, travellers are quick to agree that the shopping experience is one of the best in the world. Choose hotels in Milan
