Blame it on the lights or its convenient location in close proximity to Duomo, La Rinascente was the recipient of the World’s Best Department Store award in 2016. The flagship store has everything you could possibly want under one roof, from high-end apparel for men, women and children to the latest cosmetics, as well as books, travel goods, high fashion jewellery and luggage. Anything you forgot at home or want to treat yourself to whilst in Milan is just steps away. La Rinascente is also known for its textiles and furniture, as well as its wide selection of restaurants and cafes on the rooftop with great views of Duomo. This ten-storey wonderland has a refined ambiance and feels as though it is a portal to the rest of the world with imported home interiors and designer labels, an array of global cuisines and even cultural exhibitions.
