The business hub of Italy and fashion capital of the world, Milan is a city of diverse charms and attractions, from international trade fairs to magnificent cultural icons like Da Vinci’s The Last Supper and the San Siro Stadium, home to the famous AC Milan soccer club.
The fashionistas who lodge in Milan hotels are drawn to the Quadrilatero d’Oro, the elegant shopping quarter where Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Versace and the like tantalise shoppers with their latest seasonal designer wear.
Go from high fashion to high culture in Milan: from your hotel, you can step out to such treasures as the Duomo di Milano, the La Scala Opera House and Castello Sforzesco, along with a plethora of galleries and museums. For some tranquillity away from the visitor hubbub, seek out the delightful ambience and waterside cafes of Navigli, Milan’s canal quarter.
A constant flow of smartly-groomed business travellers fill hotels in Milan throughout the year, attending the city’s famous trade fairs, not least the annual fashion week and furniture and design expos. This busy calendar makes advance booking almost mandatory for Milan hotels, though bargain rates can be found on Saturday, Sunday and through August when locals flee the city for the coast.
