Italy is, for most of the people, tantamount with fashion. Italy is ranked near or at the top of the best shopping places on the globe. The country that hosts the prestigious Milan Fashion Week and myriad vineyards and small-scale artisans who add to the exclusive zest of this popular holiday destination is known as the fashion capital of the globe. But between the frequently not-so-extraordinary exchange rate with the euro and the high price tags of the topnotch Italian designers can a dig a hole in your pocket. One can buy shoes, fashion attires, bags, artifacts, art materials and so on. One must not forget to buy a bottle of vintage wine and savor the italiano gelato!
