Milan – the most stylish city in the world
The glazed dome reaches towards the sky. Milan’s covered shopping arcade, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, is a shopper’s paradise. The best-known Italian fashion labels are all represented here, one after another. The Milanese dressed up to the nines walk by in hurried steps.
The historic arcade is located right in the middle of Milan: outside it stands the city’s greatest attraction, Duomo di Milano. On the opposite side is La Scala, one of the most highly regarded opera houses in the world. From this point spread out the shopping streets that are counted among the most notable streets for fashion in the world.
This is Milan: the most affluent and stylish city in Italy, where shopping, religion and culture come together.
Milan is a dream city destination for fashion lovers. But Milan has its bohemian side, too: on the outskirts of central Milan, the banks of Naviglio Grande canal are lined with cosy cafés and terrace bars. The price level in the area is friendly to the wallet. This is a lovely place to wind down after some hectic shopping.
