One of the best hotels in which to stay when on a shopping trip in Milan? Definitely the Bianca Maria Palace which, thanks to its strategic location, will enable you to reach the fashion district and numerous other locations which are perfect for a buying spree, easily on foot!

This shopping enclave par excellence is just a little over a kilometre away and can be reached quickly on foot after a short walk along the Viale Bianca Maria towards Via Filippo Corridoni, Via Conservatorio, Corso Monforte, Piazza San Babila, Corso Giacomo Matteotti and Via Monte Napoleone.

Other extremely opulent locations which are recommended for all lovers of luxury and fashionable clothing are those close to Via Manzoni, Via Sant’Andrea and Corso Venezia.
And for those who want to make sure they don’t miss out on anything, there is the famous Corso Buenos Aires which stretches for 1600 metres making it one of the longest commercial shopping streets in Europe. There are over 350 different commercial businesses located here!
Equally “majestic” is the Corso XXII Marzo. Almost 2 kilometres long with hundreds of different shops and businesses.
