Style & Substance: Shopping for the Best of Milan
Exactly why is everyone mad for Milan? Fashion, art, architecture, opera: it's all there, and then some. Small wonder The New York Times recently ranked Milan fifth in a list of the top 41 places to visit in 2011, citing the freshly (and at long last) renovated Duomo, the debut of the Museo del Novecento, which houses the city of Milan's 20th-century art collection, in the refurbished Palazzo dell'Arengario (across the piazza from the famed white Duomo), and other urban transformations, too, such as the repurposing of old factories into design studios and galleries.
With more avant-garde going on in Milan than ever, even the savviest traveler may find shopping in Milan both amazing and a maze. That's where Select Italy's Style & Substance: Shopping for the Best of Milan comes in. It's a half-day or full day guided retail odyssey that brings travelers the best of the city's myriad offerings and material marvels. Whether it's a quest for jewelry, designer labels or the desire to get the skinny on the hot new designer districts, Select Italy's professional shoppers will put their in-depth knowledge of the Milan shopping scene to work to help travelers get the most out of their time on the ground in this busy capital city of Italian fashion. Specific shopping requests can be made to guides, or guides can design a shopping itinerary built around a desired theme (home goods, ready-to-wear, etc.). They'll pinpoint the best places for purchases and accompany shoppers every step of the way.
