There is no better destination in Europe than Milan for a shopping weekend. Take time to visit the birthplace of so many of the famous design houses such as Gucci, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Armani. Walk through the Manzoni quarter to visit the avenues where fashion is created daily, namely on
Montenapoleone Boulevard and Via della Spiga
. This area has been named "Fashion Square" by the locals and is definitely worth a visit.
Fashion and shopping is not all there is to see and do in Italy, as the city's rich heritage is present at every street corner and on every square. Enjoy visits of the various cathedrals and museums, or simply soak up the atmosphere
at an outdoor café, discovering the city like one of the locals.
