Hello everyone

I am going to Milan, Italy with my mom in March because she likes Italian fashion and shopping etc. It will be a day trip and we will take the Cisalpino train from Basel, so we will be in Milan from around 11 in the morning until 6 in the evening.

I guess the train arrives at Milano Centrale. Does someone of you have information on how far away the shopping area is and if the shops are open around lunch time.

Also I would appreciate some recommendations where to go and what to do.

Thanks a lot.

Grazie  Big grin

From Centrale you can take the tube "yellow" line to Montenapoleone (3 stops, the single ride ticket is 1€ while the daily ticket is 3€. By feet it's a bit longer (30/45 minutes or more, just guessing, I've never tried  Smile). After the tour in the fashion district you can go shopping in corso Venezia, corso Vittorio Emanuele, piazza del Duomo and the nearby street, and take a cappuccino or an ice-cream in some elegant cafè in the city center (beware of the price  Big grin). You can return to Centrale with the tube, yellow line, from Duomo.

I think some (if not all) the boutiques in the fashion district are open at lunch time, but I can't swear.

Have a nice shopping day  Smile

If I remember correctly these are open, and yes go see Vittorio Emanuele, have a look at that fabulous Prada flagship store..even if you don't buy, it's great just to be there. For having a little break in a cafe or a restaurant, I went to the Piazza dei Mercanti, extremely expensive but very nice and stylish.

Have fun, of all Italian cities, I love Milano most, cool city, especially the night life, though you won't see this, unfortunately.

I know it's only VfB but I like it!

I forgot... from piazza del Duomo, you can go to Porta Ticinese district (and street) though via Torino. The street is one of the most trafficated by people at any hour, and it's full of shops (not high line fashion designer... Foot Locker and similar), but you can get from here to Corso di Porta Ticinese (I suggest you to catch a tram to shorten walking time -number 20 and number 3-), which is full of strange fashion shops (mostly for young people in the 16/30 age frame): I suggest you a stop by 55DSL (a bit hard to find, it's inside a small court), Surplus and Carrhart Store. Many others are on the way. Don't expect minimalistic shop à la Armani: they are small, a bit messy if you ask me.

Damn, I should ask for an employment at my city tourist office!  Smile
