- 'Browse all kinds of antiques' at Brocantage in Milan

December 18, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that a spot of shopping is likely to be high on the agenda for anyone staying in accommodation in Milan, as it is, after all, one of the fashion capitals of the world.

However, if designer clothes are a little out of people's price range, then there is one event that could come up with the goods.

Brocantage is an antiques fair held at the Parco Esposizioni Novegro in Milan.

In 2010 it takes place between January 22nd and 24th and has around 200 exhibitors showing all manner of vintage furniture, paintings and trinkets.

Because the occasion, which was first established back in 1986, is quality controlled, visitors can be sure they are viewing items that are really worth investigating.

It is open every day from 10am until 7pm, so people have plenty of time to get a real look around. Entrance costs 8 (£7.16).

After those staying in Milan have had their fill of antiques and vintage treats, they may want to spend an afternoon exploring some of the other markets that the city has to offer.

These include Viale Fauche, which is a must for those after discounted clothes and shoes, and Fiera di Sinigaglia, which takes place every Saturday morning in Viale d'Annunzio.

About Milan reports that this offers everything from perfume to books, comics, records and furniture.

To make the most of Brocantage you should consider booking your hotel Milano to avoid disappointment.
