Mandarin Oriental, Milan

Behind the Teatro alla Scala and Piazza Duomo, a complex of four superb eighteenth-century buildings houses the “Mandarin Oriental” in Milan, a masterful combination of retro atmospheres, international design and Italian class. The internal courtyard offers a setting of rare refinement to enjoy an aperitif, perhaps before being delighted by the creations of the “Seta” restaurant, which boasts two Michelin stars. The magnificent Spa, with a holistic center and indoor swimming pool, is the ideal rendezvous after a day of sightseeing and shopping, or in view of a lively Milanese night.
