Milan

Milan

Milan is the dynamic, economic capital of Italy. And, many would say, the beating heart of world opera. Teatro alla Scala, built in the 18th century, is located in the centre of the city close to the Duomo, the magnificent cathedral who's construction was started in 1386. The leading designers (Armani, Ferragamo, Ferre, Gucci and Valentino) and the fashionable shoe shops are located behind the Duomo. The Pinacoteca di Brera gallery is housed in a 17th century palace with one of Italy's outstanding collections of paintings with some of the world's greatest masterpieces.
The famous 'The Last Supper' by Leonardo can be seen at Santa Maria delle Grazie for which we strongly recommend pre-booking a timed entrance.

Opera In Style's Favourite Hotels

  • Antica Locanda dei Mercanti
    Milan

    Hidden behind a heavy austere wooden door. On via San Tomaso and just a short stroll from Teatro alla Scala, the Duomo, Castello Sforzesco and Brera. Up one flight of stairs to the reception [luggage assitance is provied]. A haven of peace and tranquility for those wishing to escape the suffocating pressures of the typical, modern, noisy and impersonal hotels. More like staying in a private home [or at home]. Please call Andrew Blair for more information.

  • Reception

    Hotel de la Ville
    Milan

    Perfect location in the heart of Milano and a short walk to the Duomo, Teatro alla Scala and fashionable Via Montenapoleone.

  • Lobby

    Palazzo Parigi
    Milan

    Superb new [2017] 5-star Palazzo Parigi with its lovely garden and precious works of art and antiques. Close by are Brera and Teatro alla Scala.
