Milan, Italy

Milan is considered as one of the world’s fashion capitals with international stores, independent boutiques and designer brands, so Milan is a fantastic shopping destination for a wardrobe make over! For high-end brands such as Gucci, Prada and Valentino, spend an afternoon on Via Montenapoleone. If your budget doesn’t stretch for the designer labels, then Corso Vittorio Emaneuele II offers plenty of high-street shops such as Zara, Mango and H&M. One of the biggest department stores in the city is also located here, La Rinascente has 8 floors of shops to explore.

For a romantic shopping break in the big apple, a visit to Tiffany & Co is the perfect place to surprise your partner to engagement ring or jewellery to celebrate an anniversary.
