If you are an Italian Shoes Fan you have to visit Vigevano Italy's Shoe Capital!

Vigevano is surrounded by the Ticino park, which offers some spectacular views, and its town centre has a square that is a veritable architectural gem.


Its proximity and small size make it the ideal place for a day out, including for people who are in Milan on business.


Most importantly, Vigevano was, for a long time, the Italian capital of footwear, and its International Museum of Footwear, with a huge collection of shoes from all eras, is worth a visit for all specialists and fashion lovers.



Vigevano also boasts a number of charming B&B's such as the Locanda San Bernardo and the Maison Piccola Torre. Why not stay a week-end to enjoy this beautiful town in the Lombardy.

Besides the Shoe Museum, we suggest visiting the Duomo dedicated to Saint Ambrose and “Leonardiana”, a virtual exhibition of the works of Leonardo da Vinci. And spending some time on the Piazza Ducale, one of the most beautiful piazzas in Italy.

Why not take a break for a coffee or aperitivo in one of the cafes on the Piazza Ducale, such as Pasticerria  Colombo or Ristorante Rinasciemento.
