Milan’s blistering sun beats down on its squares, and even the shade of an umbrella can’t cool the swelter, however, Milan has a saving grace, and it’s not the massive cathedral across the way, but rather the city’s penchant for designer labels. Gucci, Prada, Feragamo, Pucci and more line the streets with the invitation of fashion and air-conditioning, so shop for Italian leather boots and handbags in comfort in one of the world’s leading fashion cities. Or spend a Sunday indulging in Milan’s other passion – football – take in a game at the San Siro and cheer on your favourite team with crowds of up to 85,000 people. Before or after the game take time to stroll around the city, rest outside a canal-side café, and grab dessert at an old-fashioned gelaterie, all the while watching the locals and keeping an eye out for a sale sign in one of those designer boutiques.
