The most expensive streets in Europe

The big brands fight among themselves to be able to have the best showcase on the busiest streets on the planet. Of course, while the large chains opt for large stores ( flagship stores and megastores ) in order to serve as a brand image and demonstrate their power, luxury brands tend to choose specialized streets, often short and elegant.
