About Milan

When it comes to fashion, Milan is the undisputed capital of the world. The city has been the epicenter of Italian high-end fashion for centuries, and today it remains one of the primary centers for fashion design and production. If you’re planning on visiting Milan soon, you might be wondering what the best spots are for exploring this amazing city and all its fashion wonders. From hidden cafes to designer boutiques, from secondhand markets to cobblestoned streets… there are so many cool places in this wonderful city that you could spend weeks exploring them all! Here’s a quick guide that will help you get acquainted with Milan in no time!

Navigating Milan
If you’re new to Milan and have never been here before, the first thing you should know is that this is a city of two halves. To the north of the city there is Milan’s business district where many of the city’s famous and important landmarks can be found, including the Stock Exchange and the Central Station. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s southern districts, the northern part of Milan is a more peaceful, residential area. It’s here that you’ll find many of the city’s best museums, beautiful parks, and of course, the fashion district.

Milan’s Famous Shopping District
The city’s famous shopping district is centered around Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, also known as “il Corso”. This is Milan’s equivalent of London’s Oxford Street, New York’s Fifth Avenue, or Paris’s Champs-Élysées. While there are many great places to shop in Milan, the Corso is definitely one of the best. Here you’ll find all the major designer brands like Gucci, Prada, Versace, and Ferragamo. And while you’re walking along the Corso, you’ll also discover some really unique smaller stores as well. In fact, the Corso is home to the oldest secondhand bookstore in the world, La libreria antiquaria Braido, which has been open since 1872!

Brera and the Quadrilatero
Just a few minutes’ walk south of the Corso is the Brera district, known for its many art galleries and cafes. In fact, the Brera district is home to the world’s oldest art academy, the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, as well as its most famous art gallery, the Galleria di Brera. Just south of the Brera district, you’ll find the Quadrilatero, Milan’s famous “Quad”, a cobblestoned shopping district that is home to many high-end boutiques and is also a great place for street art. One of the coolest places in Milan, the Quad is a great place to spend a day exploring the city’s fashion culture and browsing through the many cool stores.

Navigli
Just a few minutes’ walk south of the Quadrilatero you’ll find the Navigli district, Milan’s bohemian quarter and home to the canals of the Navigli. While these canals were originally built in the 19th century to act as a commercial waterway, they fell into disuse as the city expanded. Indeed, they were all but forgotten until the 1980s when they were reclaimed as a hotspot for culture and bohemian nightlife. Today, the canals of the Navigli are a must-see for all visitors to Milan and a great place for relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine.

The Spanish Quarter
Just a few minutes’ walk south of the Navigli is the Spanish Quarter, an area of the city that dates back to the 16th century when Spanish soldiers and traders first arrived in Milan. While Milan’s Spanish Quarter was originally a residential area, many of the buildings of this era have since been converted into shops, bars, and restaurants. It’s a really cool place to visit, and you’ll find it just a few minutes’ walk south of the Navigli.

Via Manzoni and Beyond
The Via Manzoni is Milan’s famous shopping street and home to the city’s Fashion and Design Museum. Via Manzoni is also home to many of Milan’s biggest and most famous fashion brands, such as Armani and Valentino. For those interested in exploring Milan’s fashion culture, this is definitely one of the best places to go, and it’s just a short walk from the Spanish Quarter.

A word about fashion in Milan
If you’re visiting Milan, you’ll quickly realize that the city is all about fashion. Indeed, the city is home to the headquarters of many fashion houses and associations, and it serves as the home to Italy’s major fashion events. If you love fashion and want to get a taste of Milan’s amazing fashion culture, here are a few things you should know: The city’s Fashion Week is one of the biggest and most important events in the fashion industry. It takes place every year during the month of February and is attended by some of the biggest designers and personalities in the industry.
