    There are two “end of season sales” periods in Italy:

    - Winter sales on January;

    - Summer sales on July.

    Sales generally start on the first Saturday of these two months, but every region is different.

    This year in Milan, Lombardia region, sales started on January the 5th and July the 5th.

    Yes, big-name designer shops also go on sale!

    Note that if you want to come to Italy for shopping you don’t have to wait too long after these dates, because the best items sell like crazy straight after the first days of sales!!

    The best city for shopping in Italy is Milan and the most famous streets for fashion are “Via Montenapoleone” and “Via della Spiga”.

    Milan (Milano) has to be the initial city when a tourist is preparing the trip to Italy since this city has an important previous and a rich ethnic heritage so, discover more relating to this incredible city with hotelbye . One of many areas most famous of Milano may be the Piazza del Duomo where Napoleon was crowned (actually, he crowned himself) in the Duomo. Milan also provided artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, the composer Verdi, the great tenor Enrico Caruso, and designer Giorgio Armani all existed and labored here; and Mussolini founded the Fascist party here. Also, the whole fashion world appears to Milan's catwalks twice annually for the season's fashions. All it's left to the Milan City an abundance of art, national, and architectural items for you really to enjoy.

    The best time is a week or two before Christmas.

    Yes, designer things also go on sale.

    Try Milano, Firenza and Roma - they have good shopping centers, but also some small shops where you can buy many things you can't in big stores.

    It differs in each u . s . a .. In Greece there are 2 sales seasons, in the wintry climate from mid January until mid February and in the summertime from mid July to the top of August. very generally this era extends to mid September yet you won't be in a position to discover clothing in all sizes, in basic terms left overs. 2 years in the past, as quickly as I visited Milan (Italy) i became fortunate because of the fact it became the main suitable days of sales. (23 -25 January) think of 80% off at D&G and 70% at Armani denims!
