La Rinascente, Milan

Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Just to the left of the Milan Cathedral, La Rinascente has been a favorite of Italian shoppers since 1887. It's the oldest department store in Italy, thriving until the World War I's resulting destruction and poverty and almost drove it out of business. Poet Gabriele d'Annunzio rescued it by rebranding it La Rinascente (the reborn), to symbolize the rebirth of Italy and the store. The name took on literal significance when a short circuit burned the building down on Christmas night 1918, only for it to be rebuilt. Now, you can explore six floors of brand-name fashion topped by a gourmet market and rooftop cafe with views of the cathedral.

  • One of the best places for luxury shopping in the heart of Milan. Here you can find almost all high-end brands under one roof, including tax-free office on the top floor. There are plenty of small cafeteria and restaurants, if you are tired of shopping, as well as a food market. There is a bar on the same floor as the food market, where you can drink a cappuccino for ~5 euro (which is very expensive for Italy), but in return you'll get a perfect view on Duomo and nice photos for Instagram :)
  • Great place to get premium products. Open-air cafe is very hot on the highest floor which can give you a good view of the DOM
  • Bad shopping experience here in Chanel! We were asking the clerk of Chanel about some information,but the lady was really impatient and kept asking us whether to buy things or not. Well, I intended to buy something at Chanel but I decided to go to another shop because the terrible service really made me uncomfortable. Other than Chanel, the clerks of other shops in the department store were nice and really helped us to get things we want. So again I would like to emphasize my disappointment toward the Chanel cosmetic and perfume shop at the ground floor.
  • Great place for lunch. Food great. Nice and cool. Pricey
  • A must visit for every tourist who come to Milan. Huge shop with all the top fashion brands on display and sale. The quality of the display stands is extremely high, it looks like a contemporary art museum, goods quality is obviously over the top. Prices are not displayed and are usually very high, especially on the first floors. Going upstairs, things are still top notch but more accessible.
