Where to stay in Milan: The Four Seasons
Dining with nature
The Four Seasons Milano gathers the city’s fashionable locals and visitors with two restaurants and a cozy lounge. La Veranda, offering both an indoor and outdoor dining experience, serves up innovative Mediterranean and local cuisine with an accent on seasonal, fresh ingredients created by celebrity Executive Chef Sergio Mei and his brigade of 28 white hats.

Il Teatro meanwhile is for the more adventurous set, as it cooks up dynamic menus, including Sunday brunch, that highlight the freshest local ingredients, as well as a gourmet menu that changes daily. The restaurant offers a sophisticated dining experience overlooking the inner Il Patio garden.
The elegant crowd looking for a place to have an afternoon tea in a laid back setting need only go to Il Foyer, a relaxed lounge offering light hors d’oeuvres, snacks, desserts and cocktails. Located next to the Camino room in the main lobby, where the convent’s church stood over 500 years ago, Il Foyer’s walls are adorned with a collection of sketches that Filippo Peroni, a famed opera set designer and costumer, made for Teatro alla Scala.

In addition to a delectable selection of luxury guest rooms and must-dine-in restaurants, the Four Seasons also houses a spa for an ultimate unwinding experience. Treatment rooms include a manicure/pedicure or massage room, a wet-treatment room and a VIP couples’ suite. Looking for the perfect Milan souvenir? How about a haircut at Rossano Ferretti Hair Salon?
Fitness buffs who can’t let any vacation time get in the way of their quest to good health need not worry, as a fitness centre with Technogym equipment, dedicated stretching area with stretching machines, circuit training from Arkè, weight-lifting area, and Kinesis Personal Heritage system, and an indoor pool are just a few steps away from their own guest rooms.
For those looking for a refreshing stay in a luxury hotel that does not overdo luxury nor skimp on the little things that define hospitality, the Four Seasons Milano is your best bet. An historic monument, enveloped by an atmosphere of warmth and revitalisation, that’s only a few metres away from a delirious afternoon of high fashion shopping? Only a select few can offer these, and the Four Seasons completely delivers.
