Best Bookshop: 10 Corso Como is famous for the clothing and accessories shop but the upstairs book shop has the most interesting book and music selection around.

Best Vintage Shop: Cavalli e Nastri has a wonderful vintage selection from big designer names in clothing and accessories to interesting little bits, all very sophisticated and fun. Now there is even a men’s shop across the road! Not vintage but certainly worth a look is the 10 Corso Como Outlet (www.10corsocomo.com) which sells past season stock of designer clothes and accessories plus there is a gallery as well.
