When traveling through Italy, part of the intrigue is the fashion that you see on the street, in cafes and restaurants, and on both men and women while riding on a Vespa, an art in itself. The fashion capital of Italy is Milan, and the fashion is like visiting a museum. The colors, patterns, textures you see on both men and women are intoxicating and the shopping can be an event that lasts forever in you memory.
While in Milan, recommend taking a leisurely walk through Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga as this area houses famous brands such as Prada, Gucci, Bulgari. It is so much fun to window shop, and if you go in, you may be offered a glass of champagne or sparkling water, which allows you to spend some time taking in the beauty, creativity and art of it all. Whether you make a special purchase or not, it is a memory that you will have for a lifetime and one that will always bring a smile to your face, as I know it does for me!
In addition to luxury shopping, there is endless possibilities of boutiques, markets and department stores. If this is more your interest, please take a walk down Corso Vittoria Emanuale II, a little history fact, the street was named after the first king of unified Italy. Here you can stroll, shop, window shop and stop at a café for an espresso and maybe a gelato or panettone, or sit for dinner or lunch.
Enjoy the art and hoping you can bring a piece of it home with you. Whether it is a fabulous, artfully wrapped package specially for you or pictures of moments in your mind of the joy you experienced while in Italy,
