Come for the fashion, stay for the design.

Milan is known around the world for being one of the top fashion destinations. The city combines art, gastronomy, food, and luxury all into one place, making it the perfect location for fashionistas and designers. The high end stores surrounded by gorgeous architecture makes for quite the stroll, and you’re bound to come across a variety of creatives while there.

Although the most notable destination for art and history lovers is the Duomo, we at Designitch have pulled together a list of equally inspirational places to visit so you can get the most out of your time in Milan.
