After checking out the Duomo, it will likely be getting close to dinnertime. Stop off at Quadrilatero d’Oro (The Golden Rectangle) for a bite to eat and some more window shopping and people watching. This is considered Milan’s fashion district. Prada, Armani, Versace, Chanel… all of your once again out-of-budget retailers are represented. Stars, fashion models, celebrities, and the very wealthy all shop here.
We stopped for some amazing gelato (because when in Italy one must eat gelato everywhere), but that was the extent of our purchases in the Golden Rectangle (hence why gelato is featured in the picture instead of a high-end handbag). Like I said, for a woman, I am not a big shopper, plus we were backpacking it, so I didn’t have a ton of room in my luggage, anyway… and let’s face it, blogging isn’t a rich mama’s profession.
Still, Milan is the Fashion Capital of the World so if you want to splurge, this is a great place to do so.
