This Week!
In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

Corso Buenos Aires is the main communication artery connecting the city center with the small business and large scale industrial district to the north of Milan.
'Buenos Aires' is the biggest shopping street in the city and one of the largest in the whole of Europe, comprising dozens of shops offering many different genres of merchandise, with clothes prevailing. Nowadays, however, the stores here tend to change hands increasingly frequently and the little old shops that were the traditional mainstay of local trade are disappearing, often replaced by anonymous jeans outlets. Prices, on average, are accessible.
Corso Buenos Aires is also a great place for bargains during sales periods, after Christmas and in mid-summer, when the two-mile stretch of shop windows is filled with colorful price tags.
Walking along the Corso, you should enter the occasional internal courtyard (e.g. Corso Buenos Aires 23 or in Piazza Lima 3) and find the small characteristic shops tucked away there.

Corso Buenos Aires

HOW TO GET THERE. Corso Buenos Aires is easily reached by the Porta Venezia, the Lima and the Loreto subway stations (all of them along the red line).
