7. Corso Buenos Aires: the Longest Shopping Street in Europe


Corso Buenos AiresSince opening in 1782, Corso Buenos Aires has been one of the most important commercial districts in Milan. A real shoppers’ paradise, it offers one and a half kilometres of window displays and it also home to several of the most important international shopping chains and single-brand stores, with more of 200 shops for all tastes and all budgets: sophisticated boutiques alternated with trendy stores offering all types of merchandise, small shops and numerous bars for a quick snack. Its side streets abound in restaurants, many of which are ethnic. A Saturday afternoon favourite with Milanese shoppers of all ages.
