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.
