The Quadrilatero d’Oro – the golden rectangle – is one of the most prestigious shopping districts in the world. We can take you to your favourite luxury brands and organize exclusive out-of-hours shopping sessions. These streets comprise Via Montenapoleone, Via Verri, Via Sant’Andrea, Via Santo Spirito, Via Borgospesso, Via Bagutta, Via Manzoni and others. Their boutiques are much more than just shops: they are works of art, with remarkably creative window displays, and interiors that evoke the spirit of the brands and their products.
In the setting offered by the predominantly 18th and 19th-century architecture, these streets acquire an atmosphere of sophisticated, relaxed refinement. Luxury shopping pleasure is enhanced by some of the most prestigious cafés in the city that represent an unmissable experience in themselves.
