Coffee and cornetto in the city
Window shop/shop at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Browse shops in the city center

Take the metro back to the hotel
We decided to stay slightly outside of the city, which ended up being a wonderful choice. Our hotel had a metro a 10 ish minute walk away from it that took us anywhere we needed to go and for a very low cost. The metro was well-connected. We saved a lot on cost by choosing to stay outside the city, but the hotel was very high end offering breakfast and a restaurant/bar downstairs. The staff was friendly and everything in the hotel was spotless.

What was the highlight of your trip?
The Armani/Silos were some of the most interesting fashion archives I had visited during my time in Italy. The pieces were preserved incredibly, and for an art and fashion lover like me, it was heaven. There was even a coffee shop inside and the staff were super friendly. The top floor had an interactive display, along with computers filled with decades worth of fashion archives.
If you were to take this trip again, is there anything you would add or do differently?
I have no complaints at all. I went outside of tourist season, so it was relatively calm and not as crowded. I got to see everything I had planned without feeling like I was on a time constraint. The outlet stores were to die for and the art district was calm, unique, and eclectic.
