After a visit to Milan — one of the top fashion capitals of the world — the best thing to bring home is a designer piece. Women might want to splurge on a Prada handbag, a Dolce & Gabbana dress or Gucci sunglasses; while men can’t go wrong with an Armani suit. All major Italian designers are headquartered in Milan and have megastores and showrooms here. High-end fashion shopping can be found just about everywhere in the city center, but for the most exclusive experience, head to the famous Fashion Quadrilateral. It’s framed by four streets — Via Monte Napoleone (the most elegant street in Milan) Via della Spiga, Via Manzoni and Via Sant’Andrea — each filled with haute couture pieces for you to take home.
