Experience a great fashion week in Milan with NAVIGON

NAVIGON guides you around the glamorous capital of fashion. With our City Highlights September you will get the best out of your daytime as well as nightlife.

Hamburg, 20 September 2011 – Milan is the Italian fashion hub. Twice a year the most important national and international fashion brands exhibit and decide on the vogue trends during fashion week shows. All the city lights up attracting thousands of people from all over the world. Nightlife gets particularly exciting during that time. But Milan is much more than fashion. It’s also a beautiful city where history captivates its visitors.

Fashion and antiquity, the two faces of Milan

The city offers several gorgeous old monuments and squares for those who like Italian culture. CityHighlights_Milan_duomoSome of the highlights are Sforza’s Castle, which is the ancient residence of the Dukes of Milan, and Milan Cathedral. The gothic cathedral is known as the symbol of Milan with the golden Madonnina statue at the top, that visitors can almost touch when standing on the cathedral roof where you have a wonderful view of the city. In the centre of Milan you will find the “Teatro alla Scala”, the internationally renowned eighteenth-century theatre, which hosts the most important musicians and operas in the world. The square “Loggia dei Mercanti”, built in 1223, used to be the market square of the city and is now an important location for events. During fashion week it becomes the city’s fashion hub. Milan combines the best of its history in the central area and promenade.

Meet the VIPs at the most important fashion spots

Another side of Milan is its reputation as the capital of fun and nightlife. There are lots of restaurants, lounge bars and disco bars in the central area for any preference and taste. NAVIGON City Highlights show you the most important fashion spots to enjoy the best of the fashion week, which takes place between 21 and 27 September 2011, backstage. Maybe you get the chance to meet VIPs or top models at Georgio Armani's cocktail bar and disco, the “Armani Privé”, or at the exclusive club created by Roberto Cavalli, the “Just Cavalli Hollywood”. You could also appreciate the wonderful view over Milan from the roof lounge bar at the 10th floor of the Hotel dei Cavalieri, the “Terrazza Ramazzotti”.

When it comes to shopping, the famous “Quadrilatero della Moda”, the haute couture central shopping area, offers the top international fashion brands’ showrooms and shops with interesting possibilities for different tastes and budgets.
