What You Can Expect

Milan Fashion Walking Tour: Quadrilatero della Moda

Visit Via Montenapoleone

Ready to become a fashion expert on Milan's fashion scene? Or at least feel like one? After meeting your expert local guide near Montenapoleone Station in central Milan, begin this action-packed 2.5-hour walking tour of Quadrilatero della Moda: the city's famed fashion district, where residents strut through the streets with enough sprezzatura to make a Renaissance courtier drop to their knees. Pass boutiques from everyone from up-and-coming designers to the long-established ones and get some shopping tips from your expert fashion-loving guide. 

The Quadrilatero della Moda, you'll see, is not only chockablock with the boutiques of big-time designers but also a playground for the city's rich and famous. Stroll the streets, lined with elegant centuries-old mansions and listen to your guide regale you with historical anecdotes about the neighborhood. Learn, for example, that it was the fact that Milan had become a major textile producer that caught the attention of Europe's fashion elites, which is why Milan today is one of the fashion capitals of Europe. 

Stroll down charming car-free Via della Spiga, walking along with the affluent shopping bag-carrying locals. Window shop or pop into boutiques like Armani, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana. Take a quick break from the shopping and marvel at the neo-Renaissance palace on Via Gesù and then march on, taking in the glossy-fronted shops of French designers Chanel Hermès on Via Sant’Andrea and then walk down the district's famed Via Montenapoleone to take in the many shop front displays. And another sight to see on the street: all the stylish beautiful people. 

Strut down Via Manzoni, taking in the Grand Hotel hugging up to impressive palaces and stylish boutiques and then conclude the tour in PIazza della Scala.
