If there exists an absolute shopping haven, then it has to be via Montenapoleone in Milan, also considering that for people worldwide it is the timeless symbol of a Milan offering pleasure and luxury brands.
One only has to think of the tourists, mainly the female tourists, who always plan a trip to Milan during their Italian holidays so as to give full vent to their love of shopping in this legendary street.
From our hotel in Milan via Montenapoleone is easy and quick to get to. Once there you can delight in the splendid shop windows that light up the street not only during the day but long after sunset. Might we say they could be likened to splendid mermaids that tempt you to explore boutique after boutique with their treasures of clothing, accessories and jewellery?
Here in Milan you will naturally find the famous Made in Italy brands Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci but also Dior and Louis Vuitton. These are just some of the famous designer labels that have taken up residence in the city. And Hotel Canada is the one hotel in central Milan that truly boasts an excellent location, not only for the luxury of via Montenapoleone, but also for the other places of beauty the city displays to its visitors.
And if this should not suffice, you can wander around the other streets parallel to via Montenapoleone: Via Verri, Via Sant’Andrea and Via della Spiga, which together form the famous fashion quadrilateral of Milan, an unmissable destination for all shopping addicts on holiday.
And if you want to take a dive into the past, there is the nearby Museo della Moda, the Fashion Museum, where at Palazzo Morando there are two floors of clothes and accessories alongside paintings of the same periods. The exhibition is permanent and will most certainly be remembered by all who visit it.
