My wallet was almost stolen by a middle eastern looking guy. We noticed lots of people bumping us. The place is always full even on a weekday because it is a tourist destination. Keep your belongings safe.

Visited on a wet Tuesday in November. Amazing shops and food. As well as well known brands, there were exclusive shops selling for example just ties and men’s scarves. Also large department store, with great views of the Cathedral from the terrace restaurant

Spectacular and airy shopping center, lovely architecture & shops. The department store lower floor is all fab designs for the home - worth a visit to sit in an Eames chair and view the prices of some iconic interior design.

I believe this gallery is one of, if not the first, indoor shopping malls. The architecture and glass ceiling are beautiful and worth taking a look at. The building is right off of the Piazza del Duomo, so it is likely that you'll be nearby...More

Spectacular galleria, a great place to saunter and admire the architecture and wonder at how much it must cost to buy anything in the high end shops it contains. Most people are tourists rather than shoppers, or those who have come to rotate on the...More

I didn't buy anything but had a great time looking at the expensive handbags and shoes. A must see for shopaholics! It is a beautiful, high-end shopping delight right beside the Duomo.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square

Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
