Shopping requires inspiration, and La Rinascente is definitely the place where ideas take form, thanks to its mix of Italian and foreign brands, to the endless variety of its products, ranging from fashion to accessories, from lingerie to perfumery, from leisure to lifestyle. Referring to La Rinascente as a “shopping centre” is truly an understatement: this fabulous department store, overlooking the Duomo, is a part of Milan’s history. It was 1865 when the Bocconi brothers started a new business in Milan, the city of tailors: for the first time, at La Rinascente clothes were ready to wear. The success of this new selling technique was incredible and, shortly after, the shop grew in size and was moved to piazza Duomo. Nowadays, this ten floor colossus stocks almost everything that you can think of, including the best and most prestigious brands in clothing, accessories and cosmetics but also a design supermarket, offering useful design objects from all over the world, and a food hall featuring over one thousand products to delight the palates of gourmet shoppers. The terrace of the top-floor restaurant area offers a fantastic view of the spires of the Duomo. M1-M3 Duomo.
