Milan Shopping Areas, Italy

For more affordable shopping, there are four important streets in the city that are almost entirely dedicated to shopping: Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Corso Buenos Aires, Via Torino and Corso di Porta Ticinese.

  • Corso Vittorio Emanuele links Piazza Duomo with Piazza San Babila, and begins with the Rinascente, the monument to Milanese shopping that owes its name to Gabriele d'Annunzio. In Corso Vittorio Emanuele there are sophisticated label shops, such as Max Mara, Moreschi, Bruno Magli and Pollini, but there are also more popular labels such as H&M, Zara and Furla.
  • Corso Buenos Aires, that is one of the longest streets in Europe, connects Porta Venezia to Piazzale Loreto, and is even more commercial: here you can find Timberland, Mandarina Duck, Benetton, Kookai and Nara Camice.
  • In Via Torino that stretches between the Duomo and Corso di Porta Ticinese, the average shopper's age is much lower and the casual style is sportier, with Foot Looker, Camper and Energy shops all here.
  • The closer you get to the Navigli area, which is the temple of street-style, the more the shop scenario changes. Corso di Porta Ticinese, a continuation of Via Torino, is the right place for those "off the wall" purchases: Custo-Barcellona, Diesel, Miss Sixteen, Gas and Fornarina stand alongside second-hand clothing, eccentric designers' boutiques, bizarre household goods, handmade clothes and accessory stores made from silk and other precious materials.
