A visit to Milan will leave any fashion lover breathless. Among the cobblestone streets and charming buildings, you’ll easily discover exquisite boutiques. Led by a fashion expert, this experience is a must for all fashion lovers.
The tour begins in beautiful district Navigli, famous for its canals, all-night bars, and delicious aperitivo. Go around the district and admire the artisan boutiques of Milan. Every showroom has its unique design, different style, and interesting story behind. Your local guide will tell you and your friends everything about the ateliers and how they contributed to Milan’s fashion scene.
The next stop is the Antonio Marras concept store.

If you have a passion for fabrics, you’ll absolutely love the next stop. You will visit a fabric shop famous for its high-quality fabrics and clientele.

Get ready for an interesting story about how 'Lady Gucci' ordered her husband’s murder and how everything ended.
Stroll down the chic streets and make a stop at a Japanese jewelry shop. The unique space also has an atelier where the designer makes the jewelry herself. Get insights from the artist and admire her unique work. After the visit, it’ll be time for a well-deserved coffee break! Keep the fancy vibe and stop at a rustic, chic cafe that will impress you with its fantastic decor and atmosphere.
Cavalli e Nastri boutique, your next stop, is known for its very stylish garments. With an impressive selection of items from ‘30 to ‘80, the store has famous labels such as Armani, Chanel or YSL. Admire its vintage collection or even do some shopping. Your fashion expert guide is ready to give you the best advice to find what you’re looking for.
Your last stop is Armani boutique, an impressive three floors building full of luxurious and elegant items. Once you’re here, you’ll learn more about the famous designer from your private guide.
