Rinascente is a slightly more upscale department store than Coin with more floors and more designer names, both local and international, which makes it a good choice for one-stop shopping particularly if you need something open late in the evening or on a Sunday.The first floor's cosmetics and accessories counters makes the department store seem small, but an escalator to the next floors up reveal a much larger layout. Find womens, mens and childrens fashions, while further up the top floor houses an excellent collection of homewares – Alessi anyone? They have a rooftop terrace on the 5th floor with an unbeatable view of the city overlooking Piazza Repubblica where you can rest in style with a cappucino in between shops – you do pay for the view however!
