One day in Milan . Second chapter: Tips for shopping.

One day is not enough to see Milan, to taste it, to enjoy it, to enter every single boutique in search for little souvenirs. I was very surprised by the good range of shoes, bags and cloths that you can find there at very good price. And they were exactly what I was looking for. 
Very stylish but yet simple and elegant.As a tip the future shoppers should begin their itinerary from the heart of the luxury shopping area in Milan: Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and Via Sant'Andrea, elegant streets that together with Via Manzoni, Via Borgospesso and Via Santo Spirito are the outer limits of the famous Fashion Quadrilatero. This area has the most prestigious boutiques and showrooms in the world, full of minimalist design and high tech shops.The extremely elegant Via Manzoni is home to Spazio Armani at no. 31. This is the Giorgio Armani multi-concept store where you can admire the Emporio Armani showrooms, Armani casa, and Armani fiori. 

  Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Corso Buenos Aires, Via Torino and Corso di Porta Ticinese are as well very important shopping dedicated streets especially if your looking for more affordable purchases.

Corso Buenos Aires,  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. 

Lots of choices ladies! Next time I will reserve at least one day just for shopping and two checked-in luggage  :)
