Well, it is the time to experience the real Milan in your dreams with full of luxury shops, fancy bars and cafés, model look like couples and high heels! Yes this was the real Milan expression in my mind before coming here and I found it in Quadrilatero d’Oro! It is basically a rectangle consist of 4 main streets located in the east north of the city. (rectangle of gold)
Keep in mind that this district is consider even the most important fashion spot in the World by some critics like Vogue!
Starting with my favorite, via della Spiga: when I had reached there for the first time I said “Yes, this is the Milan picture that I’ve had in my mind!” It is one of the most prestigious and high class shopping streets in the city. The nicest part of this street, which differs it from the others, is that it is closed to traffic and turned into a pedestrian path. So it lets you have a calm walk taking a look to the showcases of the luxury brands. And finally don’t get shocked by the amount of the Dolce&Gabbana shops here!
Via Manzoni starts from the Piazza Scala and continues until Piazza Cavour. This street is highlighted with the prestigious buildings, including the museum and the hotels. It is also a very busy and elegant street in the city.
Via Sant’Andrea is another luxury shopping street for the fashion addicts! All these 4 are making a rectangular on the area, which leads you have an easier walk and check them all.
Finally the biggest one Via Montenapoleone it is famous for the ready-to-wear fashion brands and also the jewelry. The most elegant shops of the most expensive brands are located here and waiting for the fashion followers.
Whenever there is a show or event related with design and fashion in the city, this district is the starting point of it certainly!
In order to reach the Quadrilatero della Moda you can use the metro taking the stop Montenapoleone on yellow line or depending where you are coming from it is also enjoyable to choose the way from Corso Venezia and start from via Spiga.
