I must confess that I don’t consider myself a “shop-a-holic”, I can tire easily, but I always enjoy a stroll down Corso Porta Ticinese at least for a bit of window shopping.
The area is vibrant with lots of young people night and day and is just a hop, skip and a jump from Via Torino (a little closer to the centre) where you can find the big name shops such as H&M and Zara or close to a good bar to enjoy Milan’s Aperitivo.
The shops are geared more toward the younger market with a mix of youth oriented brands like Lee, Quiksilver and Energy. However, my weakness are the shoe shops and Italians know their shoes! The shoes are more unique than what you can find in the main shopping drag and often also well-priced. What better souvenir to take back home than a pair of good Italian shoes!
The added bonus to this area is that you’ll also come across some great street art. Keep your eyes pealed!
