169. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan was where I had imagined all of the great shopping to be, but in actual fact there weren’t all that many shops there. The flagship Prada, Louis Vuitton and Gucci stores were good fun, and it was a welcome relief that they still let us in all the flash stores after being too under-dressed for the Duomo. I guess in a city where most people look like Snooki the sales assistants have stoppeed discriminating.
