The Best Shopping Area in MilanThe La Rinascente department store is a huge store that spreads over 8 floors. It is located in Piazza Duomo, north of the city's famous city cathedral and close to the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery.
Rinascente is a prestigious department store chain in Europe and its Milan department store is considered one of the largest department stores in the world. Here you can buy everything. There are clothes, underwear, children's clothing, toys, designer furniture and high-quality electronics, footwear, cosmetics, perfumes, wine stores, coffee and luxury kitchenware. By the way, world-class brands, such as Chanel and Marc Jacobs, sell here in small spaces, designed as small luxury shops, which simulate independent boutiques within the large department store.
One of the interesting floors in the store is the basement. Here, you will find a real supermarket, but for design. This is a place that gives you an experience of wandering the supermarket, but you can buy a huge variety of design items of all sizes and designers and leading design companies in the world.
TipsGo up to the mall's roof floor and sit in one of the three restaurants in it. When you sit there, you will see right next to you, the upper part of the Duomo and its wonderful statues close up. It is a delightful experience to see this architectural marvel at the cost of a meal or cup of coffee and right next to you.
Apart from the restaurants and the coffee shop on the roof floor, there is also a huge deli, barbershop and health bar on the seventh floor.
Do not forget to request VAT refund forms.
From the basement level there is direct access to the subway station.
