The winter sales in Milan start on 5 January and continue until 5 March, almost a month longer than those in Rome. The best high fashion bargains can be had in the central and upmarket shopping area of Via Monte Napoleone, but for lower prices also head for Corso Como and the trendy Corso di Porta Ticinense. If you want the more run-of-the-mill bargains then of course Corso Buenos Aires in the place to go.
