Shopping: the most particular shops in Milan

Are you fed up to always go to the usual shops and to never find that dress or object that makes you lose your head? In Milan you can find an infinite quantity of shops, but which ones are the most special and original to be absolutely seen?


A few minute walk from the Arco della Pace there is a place designed for women by a woman. With its sofas, furniture, cupboards and a cozy kitchen, Oragnorilla will make you feel as if you were at home.

Many are the cooking classes to learn new recipes and chat among friends. You can’t miss of course the shopping to find special objects and homemade food products. Do you want to live a unique experience of this kind? Come and visit this shop and you will be pleasantly surprised!


10 Corso Como. 

Opened in 1991 by Carla Sozzani, the sister of the famous Franca, 10 Corso Como is defined a “concept store” more than a store, a place that hosts luxury clothing, design objects, books and magazines.

Inside there is also a bar, which is the strong point of the store, an art gallery and a hotel with three rooms only. Over the years it has become a real attraction for tourists and is reported in all the guidebooks as a must. If you want to combine the pleasure of a good coffee with the passion for fashion and art, you have found the perfect place for you!



For those who think that the time has stopped at the ’70s, you can’t not make a leap at Nipper. Located in the heart of the Navigli just a few steps from the Residenza Ascanio Sforza, it’s a store where you can find very particular objects, almost impossible to find, such as ’70s phones, jukeboxes, globes and old signs, all completely restored with care.

During the Salone del Mobile taking place these days, Nipper will be present as every years to expose the strengths of his collection.


Carpe Diem.

Considered one of the best shops in Milan where you can find the perfect gift for any occasion, Carpe Diem will catch you just after getting inside thanks to its myriad of gadgets: from household items to small pieces of furniture, games and accessories, all of them very original.

Don’t miss Lucidafollia, the event organized for the Fuorisalone from Carpe Diem for centering the theme of the lights in the modern home scenarios. Seize the moment to buy an item unique and rare!


 Fiera di Sinigallia.

After a stressful week of work there is nothing better than going for a walk to relax along the Navigli, just a few steps from your apartments. But if you cannot resist shopping even on weekends, every Saturday you can find the Fiera di Sinigallia, the historic flea market that will allow you to stroll around the stalls full of vintage goods, antiques and quality craftsmanship.

Do not worry about not find it, its vibrant and colorful banquets will immediately get noticed!


From Residenza Ascanio Sforza you can easily reach all means of transport that will take you to the particular shops in Milan.
