Quadrilatero d'Oro

Via Montenapoleone, Via Manzoni and Via della Spiga, Milan, Italy, 20100

The Basics

The Quadrilatero d’Oro is located just north of the Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) and is a beautiful area to walk around. For those without the deep pockets for these high-fashion stores, the window displays alone are worth a gander and give visitors a taste of the high life. Book a tour of Milan’s fashion district to learn more about the industry and how the city came to be a center for style and design.
