Corso Buenos Aires - Duomo Shopping (Self Guided), Milan

Milan is one of the fashion capitals of the world, and it is easy to see why when you walk around some of its streets and discover the many stores and boutiques selling the creations of leading designers.

One of the hottest places to go for fashion is Corso Venezia. This is without a doubt one of Milan's most exclusive and elegant avenues. It is part of the upscale Quadrilatero della moda shopping district. On Corso Buenos Aires, find lots of young international fashion brands such as Italian chains Nara Camicie and Intimissimi and Swedish retail giant H&M. Throughout the area are many delightful independent boutiques as well as the flagship stores of several globally famous brands.

One of the alluring highlights of this part of the city is Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an upscale shopping mall that is one of the oldest in the world. The doors of this stunning looking neoclassical building first opened in 1867 and inside, under its gorgeous glass roof are luxury retailers selling jewelry, haute couture and much more. There are also a number of elegant bars, restaurants and cafés to unwind and watch other stylish shoppers pass by. This is where the upper echelons of Milan’s society come to shop.
