It might be considered like a cliché, but Rinascente is still on on top of Milano “easy shopping”. Don’t miss the chance of visiting this “pet friendly” department store starting from a “design shower” and finishing with a “food bath” with a stunning view.

The Design Supermarket (floor – 1) has an international “mood” and as a chamaleon is continuously changing: it gives home to new brands, trends and hosts the “best of breed” in terms of creativity and innovation. With a myriad of unexpected design objects and amazing gifts for special friends, this space needs to be explored, to open your mind about living and life style. To buy design objects here is as natural as going to the supermarket (but a very trendy one), the ideal place to indulge in something really new or buy truly amazing gifts, choosing the trendiest cult objects, games, unusual tools, accessories to serve tea and coffee (to turn a habit into a pleasant ritual) and travel stuff for a stylish journey can be found in here.

And when you start to be tired just take a sit at  the Design Supermarket Cafeteria “Bar della Rina”. The open space and the atmosphere make you want to stop, take a look around, have a break and live shopping at a slow pace.

But if your stomach is seriously starting to “cry” … just get the lift to the 7th floor (avoid the escalators which might be dangerous for your 4 legged companions) and visit the Rinascente Food Hall, a bunch of bars and restaurants with a cosmopolitan style and a stunning view on the Duomo cathedral.  Always open, 7 out of 7, from breakfast to after-dinner drinks, from the Mozzarella Bar to Sushi, from a brunch with champagne to a fresh juice fruit, this is an exclusive setting to admire the spires of the Duomo, in other words a unique place to start the day or close the night with taste and style.  Absolutely PAWesome, your furry friends are welcome here and guess what …free ticket to get to the top.

And if you believe you are “strong enough” … before you sit for some greedy stuff, have a look around at The Food Market, where you can find authentic Italian gourmet products such as the best pasta (the one used by top chefs), more than 20 kinds of salt, a huge variety of pepper, exotic spices, extra virgin olive oil, precious barrel-aged aromatic vinegars, special jams, luxuriously wrapped sweets, chocolate in the most amazing shapes and forms, a selection of mineral water in design bottles and wines from the best Italian and international wineries … how many choices for a perfect gift to yourself ? Should you need some advice, you can make an appointment with the “personal shoppers” who are at your disposal every day to help you put together a fantastic and stylish “doggy bag” (LOL).
