Shopping is a religion in Milan, but beware of spending too much as even window shopping in Milan can be tempting.

The famous Quadrilateral, Quadrilatero della Moda, is one of the most expensive parts of the city where you will find exclusive boutiques such as Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Valentino, Armani, D&G… This area is formed by Via Montenapoleone, Sant’Andrea, della Spiga and Manzoni. Clothes, accessories, shoes… are all on display in the shop windows of these shops so you will find just about anything you are looking for – but at a price! Shopaholics flock to the city all year, but the most popular period to visit is during Milan fashion week with its fashion shows.

There are also various outlet stores in Milan selling big brand names. Many are found outside the city centre (D&G in Legnano, Timberland in Pero…). Some of the most popular outlets are located in the historic centre of the city such as Diffusione Tessile which sells the brand Max Mara, the Kookai outlet, Bruno Magli and Bassetti.
