For a city with a reputation like Milan’s for high fashion and design, seeing the city’s Fashion Quarter is essential, if only to admire its glamour! Head to Via Montenapoleone (vee-ah mon-te-nah-poh-lee-oh-nee, not sure), ground zero for big names and extravagant designer stores. The piazzas surrounding the Duomo and outlet stores just outside the city centre feature shops with chic clothing at more affordable prices. For other goods, explore the stalls of flea markets or stop in boutique shop selling jewellery, sports apparel, leather goods and antiques.
