Corso Vercelli offers a great opportunity for shopping where you may find all international retail chains, just like in Corso Buenos Aires. The advantage of this location is that you are not in the city center, which implies that shops are not crowded and even during the sales periods you will be able to find all desired sizes.
Corso Vercelli has traditional commercial roots that go back to 1800s. At that time this boulevard had a favorable tax and customs conditions due to the fact that the area had not yet been incorporated into the city boarders. Before 1873, when Corso Vercelli officially became a part of Milan, it was quite attractive for smuggling.
Today, this casual shopping street is quite convenient because not only you are to find pleasant and not crowded atmosphere in the shops, but also any time you get tired typical Italian bars will welcome you for a nice break.
Shops in this shopping zone are open every day from 9:30am to 7:30pm. On Sunday shops are usually closed except the COIN department store.
