Best shopping streets in Europe

During a visit to Europe, you'll want to be sure to check out some of the city's very best shopping streets. Spend a few hours, a few days or your entire stay browsing through the wide variety of stores found here, carrying everything from the latest apparel to hit the fashion industry to fun souvenirs to take home for friends and loved ones. The best way to shop within Europe is to use credit cards from American Express. Travelling with credit is much safer than carrying around large sums of cash with you on the streets. In addition to all of the amazing safety features that credit cards offer, you may even be able to take advantage of special discounts and receive points just for doing what you love best, shopping!
