10 Corso Como – Bookshop, Gallery, Café

Corso

Sleek and modern in design, the Corso Como in Milan offers a gorgeous setting in which to enjoy its grand selection of new and classic books on art, architecture, literature, design, and fashion, as well as its immense world music collection.  What makes this bookstore so spectacular is that it also contains an art gallery, a terrace showcasing rotating exhibitions by local artists, a garden café, and even three hotel rooms reflecting styles from Mid Century Modern to the most cutting edge of current designers.  Don’t miss the gallery shop; it doubles as a bazaar offering unique and eclectic items from around the world.  It’s pricey, but well worth a cappuccino and an afternoon of browsing.
