The best place to shop in Milan is along the four adjoining streets found north of the Duomo, popularly known as the Quadrilatero d'Oro, or Golden Quadrilateral to the non-Italian speakers. This is the best place to fill your fashion quota, as the streets are lined with high-fashion emporia. To get to this fashion haven, go through Via Manzoni, then get off at San Babila, the closest stop when you're going via Metro. For the cream of the crop, head straight to Via Montenapoleone, where the most elegant items can be found.

But if you're not looking for signature clothing, head on over to Corso Buenos Aires. To get there, just follow Via Vitruvio from the Piazza Duca d'Aosta in front of the station, then get off the Metro at either Lima or Loreto. Here you will find bargains of all kinds, from dress shirts, to CD megastores. As you head south, you will approach Corso Venezia, where the prices will then go up as you go along.

Fashionistas of every kind will definitely have the time of their lives when shopping in Milan. The city is the home of flagship stores for numerous designer labels such as Armani, Versace, Ermenegildo Zegna, Moschino, and Trussardi. These labels cost much less in Italian cities than in other countries, so better take advantage of that. Saldi or sales, usually run from January to February.

Other items you can purchase in Milan include housewares, fine porcelain ceramics, and linen.
