Couture Capital: Shopper’s paradise offers more than catwalk creations
Stock up on sexy styles from Prada and Versace, clustered around Milan’s Quadrilatero d’Oro and in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. If fine art sets your heart racing, visit Santa Maria delle Grazie (home of Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”), the Castello Sforzesco, and the Pinacoteca di Brera. La Scala is an opera lover’s Valhalla, and a rooftop walk on the Duomo, Milan’s domed cathedral, offers unforgettable views toward the Alps.
