Never too Much
La Dolce Vita, 1960.
Set in the artistic and emerging area of downtown Milan, Hotel Palazzo Segreti is a boutique design hotel with a difference. Ancient design meets raw, contemporary style in this newly derived concept hotel, which feels more like a luxurious casa. 18 spacious, carefully and individually curated rooms provide a sanctuary away from Milan’s bustling centre. The hotel offers access to neighbouring restaurants, boutiques and the iconic Duomo.
Take a drink in the petite Palazzo Segreti Hotel Bar, which is comparable to a stylish Milanese terrace bar and conveniently located close to home; perfect for a pre-dinner Aperol spritz or a cognac nightcap.
The Junior Suites - set in a soft industrial setting and where crisp white linen is dressed with rustic fabric throws and statement chairs.
10 Corso Como – Luxury labels in a curated space. Enjoy an espresso in the café downstairs or head upstairs to the bookstore and gallery space.
Aspesi – Located in the famous quadrilatero della moda, the options, for both men and women, are endless.
WOK - Store – An eclectic mix of avant-garde designers, artists and established brands such as Christophe Lemaire and Comme des Garçons, this store is a must.
Cavalli e Nastri – On a street full of vintage stores this one stands out for it’s immaculate collection of designer wares.
Rovello 18 - Go for homemade pasta and an enviable wine cellar.
Milan is hosting the Expo in 2015, which means that exhibitions are in full swing. Palazzo Reale and Castello Sforzesco are showing everything from Leonardo da Vinci to sculptures by Medardo Rosso. Il Bacio (The Kiss) at Pinacoteca di Brera is always worth the stop. For a full listing of exhibitions, Swide has all the details.
