Milan, a metropolis in Italy’s northern Lombardy region, is the Fashion capital of the world. The Gothic Duomo di Milano cathedral and the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent, housing Leonardo da Vinci’s mural “The Last Supper,” testify to centuries of art and culture. Although Milan sometimes gets a bum wrap for being “too industrial” there is a fashionable oasis in Milan’s most exclusive neighborhood, the Four Seasons Hotel. A 15th-century convent turned sophisticated garden retreat, Four Seasons Hotel Milano is the place to stay when visiting Milan. From ceilings lined with ancient Italian frescoes to authentic Italian dishes under the stars in the outdoor veranda. A spa that is unrivaled and a pool that is an architecture wonder are just a few of the amenities that this chic hotel offers. The location of this property is unbelievable. A stroll outside and you are in the heart of Milan’s Fashion district. From Gucci to Hermes every top designer is represented in a few blocks radius. If you want to escape the city for the day, visit Franciacorta, about an hour east of Milan, to experience the winemaking process first-hand and sample some of Italy’s finest wines. Be sure to ask the concierge about reserving a vintage 1960’s convertible for your drive. As always with Four Seasons they think of everything.
This property gets our vote as THE Place to stay when visiting Milan.
