La Rinascente, Milan

3.9
#3 of 134 in Shopping in Milan
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.

  • I've been on Sunday in this great Centre "LA RINASCENTE" near the Duomo in Milan ... great Center on several floors ... everything ... so many brands ... so many things belle...ma I personally have not bought anything ... really exaggerated prices ... is not to every budget ... even for a coffee or drink and eat something ... I did some meter longer and I spend less ... anyway to visit if you want to spend a few hours and see something else ...

  • If you want to shop and make you come a neurosis, stress, this is the place. Personally I don't like these places, but here you'll find everything you're looking for. Great terrace overlooking the Cathedral for an appetizer.

  • Situated on the 7th floor of the great warehouses Rinascente, is an outdoor bar facing the Duomo and frantic environment. Good drinks and appetizers, something guys but lets everything. Not to be missed

  • I had a wonderful shopping experience today at Rinascente Milan. I was helped since the first moment with professional advice and I am gonna receive my dress tomorrow home, with all the sewing work done in half a day. Prices are adequate to the quality of products and services. The location near Duomo is perfect.
  • This is a very nice department store great selection different upscale and normal brands . During the sale was very interesting to purchase designer clothing and shoes. It's also a good time killer . The restaurant at the rooftop is just awesome views are amazing and food is great. Highly recommended
  • Lovely store. High end. Top floor for gourmet foods and dining. Out door seating provides a great view of the Duomo.
  • Amazing shopping mall. Very beautiful decoration and very polite staff. Last floor has many options if you want to eat something but most of them are a bit expensive.
  • Fun place to shop for fashionistas who like *expensive* brands. Probably not the best idea to go on a Saturday afternoon like I did. Reminded me very much of Harrods in London or Bloomingdales in NYC, where there are separate booths or corners for each name brand, and entire floors dedicated to a certain type of item (first floor perfume/makeup, second purses, etc). For those women who are interested in slightly more affordable fashion, I would recommend visiting the Annex! Even then, it’s in the $50-$200 range for a clothing item. The top floor has a yummy selection of food but very cramped! I would go to the cafe on the bottom floor.
