With the month of August almost over, and the weather feeling a bit more like October…we are eager for an excuse to get out of town! This weekend, let’s parade down the streets of Milan, feeling fashionable and fabulous. With delectable Italian cuisine, inspiring store-fronts and attractive eye-candy all around, our bags are packed. All aboard!

Next Stop: Milan, Italy

SBB Travel Time: 3.40 hours via a direct train from Zurich to the city center.

About the Destination: Drops the boys at the AC Milan match and hit the street in this shoppers’ paradise city.  For those in search of the holy grail of fashion, the famous Golden Quad (Quadrilatero d’Oro) is mandatory as these 4 streets, Via della Spiga, Via Monzani, Via Sant’Andrea and Via Montenapoleone house some of the most prestigious fashion showrooms in the world. What else would you expect from a city that hosts the headquarters of Italian labels Valentino, Gucci, Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada?
