Via Torino has long been one of Milan's main shopping streets; it also connects Piazza Duomo with the characteristic Ticinese district. In recent years Via Torino has developed as a shoe mall, with a plethora of shops geared mainly to the young set. Merchandise - from all-terrain boots to dainty sandals - is of differing quality and ranges from the inexpensive to the medium-to-high priced.
Walking down Via Torino from the Duomo, you reach the Ticinese district, which offers instead a selection of small shops and workshops. Beyond Largo Carrobbio you will come to Corso di Porta Ticinese, where a new generation of craftsmen have taken the place of the old timers and, with their creative ideas, are attracting a younger clientele. Corso di Porta Ticinese leads to the Navigli.
HOW TO GET THERE. You get to Via Torino from Piazza Duomo (subway station Duomo).
