Milan shopping
Hi girls!

I couldn't find a thread about where to shop in Milan.
Do you have any ideas?

Thanks!

i live here ask me if you want to know something particular!!
there are some places where you have to go, like montenapoleone, via della spiga, sant'andrea; there you can find all the BEST. there are also in the city pretty cute shops in C.so Ticinese, No Season is one of the best! in downtown also DAAD is pretty nice!

I like Purple and the shops around it in Porta Ticinese..The whole street is nice (I dont remember it's name), the one that goes down to Il Naviglio...The Fornarina and Killah shops are really nice..Some vintage...a lot of Street...And then..nice aperitivos at Porta Ticinese..

Does anybody know where a great shoestore with lots of designers near montenapoleone is? I'm going to milan in about 4 weeks for one day shopping and I've been there last year before, but I didn't find a shoe store which sells only designers.
Thanks in advance.

You can shop at VIERRE, just at the end of Montenapoleone street; it sells great selection of designer shoes, pricey but wonderful :p :p

I would like to resurrect this thread since I will be in Milan for a couple of days. So far I have only 10 Corso Como on my list. Is there anything else worth checking out? Also, if anyone could recommend a nice, centrally located, not too expensive hotel - I would appreciate it.

Also, is Brera the best area to stay in? From my research, it sounds like it, but I see very few hotels there (probably for a reason ). What are the areas next to Brera - I could look for a hotel there.

Last question - is there a decent map of Milan available on the internet? I can't find any.

Thanks.

Faust, "easy milano" is a magazine for expats in Milan; they always have a map at the end of it. Not the greatest and most detailed, but you can download it in PDF format at http://www.easymilano.it/eng/index.php and see if it's enough for your needs. I kept a ring-bound Berlitz (?) "pocket book" map in my bag when I was living there, you can buy it at a stall by Duomo, or anywhere I guess, for 6 or something.

Brera is a very nice area, but most of the central city is OK. Just avoid the area around Stazione Centrale... I think the best place to look for a good, but still reasonably priced hotel would be around Porta Venezia? I'd say it doesn't really matter exactly where you're staying since the city is so compact. Public transportation is excellent and taxis are relatively cheap.

You already have 10 Corso Como on your list, and it really is a must... But don't forget to check out their outlet at Via Tazzoli 3, it's just a few minutes walk from the main store!

Another good outlet is D Magazine at the end of Montenapoleone and Porta Genova (2 different shops, I've only ever been to Montenapoleone) http://www.dmagazine.it/ Their stock changes constantly, sometimes you find great stuff from CdG, Dior Homme, Margiela and lots of other labels, sometimes nothing but crap...
