As the business and fashion capital of Italy, Milan runs at a faster pace than other Italian cities. While they may not find as much art as they would elsewhere in Italy, Milan hotel guests have the singular opportunity to spend as much time as they like gazing at Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous Last Supper, which hangs in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church.
For hotel guests in Milan who came to shop, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele will surpass all expectations. Built in 1861, this forerunner to the modern shopping mall houses retailers of iconic Italian designers (Prada and Gucci) as well as famous foreign labels (Massimo Dutti and Louis Vuitton, for instance) in an awe-inspiring domed iron and glass structure.
To keep their energy up until they return to their hotel, shoppers will want to grab a panzarotti: this signature pizza dough pastry stuffed with cheeses and meats is typically eaten by the Milanese on the run.
When they need a breather, guests staying in our Milan hotels will want to check out Parco Sempione. This gorgeous public park is an oasis, giving natives and visitors alike a chance to reflect on all the beauty found in this important Italian city.
