Slightly northwest of the white marble magnificence that is the Duomo di Milano and overlooking the city's most prestigious shopping street, Via della Spiga, Baglioni Hotel Carlton is a five-star boutique hotel located right in the heart of Milan, where wanderlust and high fashion intersect. In recent decades, an architectural Renaissance has taken hold, designating Milan as illustrative of all things "new Italy." Whether exploring the boulevards and fine garments spanning the fashion houses of Armani to Versace or securing tickets to lay your eyes upon "The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci, Milan will leave its mark on your heart.
Northern Italian cuisine and attentive service await you on-site at Baglioni Hotel Carlton. In an elegant setting, owners Ermanno and Vincenzo will take excellent care of you, ensuring an unforgettable meal.
With an entrance on the most fashionable street in Milan, the hotel's spa uses Natura Bissé and NuFACE products to tailor special treatments to each client. A customized massage, facial and day of bliss are on the menu.
Duomo di Milano is built in the Gothic-style, dedicated to St. Mary. This is the fifth-largest church in the world. Arrive early if you would like to visit the church's interior as lines can be long.
A fairly plain façade of gray stone leads into the bright frescoes inside this church, described by many as Milan's version of the Sistine Chapel. This was a monastery during the Benedictine period.
One of the oldest shopping malls in the world, the Galleria is named after the first king of Italy. This double arcade spans four stories and houses luxury retail brands. The glass ceiling and mosaic floors alone are worth a visit.
This charming trattoria specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, incorporating fresh seafood. The kitchen is separated from the dining area by glass windows, allowing you a glimpse inside the busy evening with the chefs.
Don't be misled by the hoards of gelato shops peddling mounds of gelato in their window displays; it's not the real deal. True gelato can only be found under a flat, silver lid. We recommend Gelateria Apua for the best version in Milan.
As you plan your itinerary, it's helpful to note that many historical sites, museums, art galleries and tour offerings are closed on Mondays. Take the day to walk and explore and finish it with dinner reservations at Baretto al Baglioni.
Many establishments in Italy bill extra if you choose to sit at a table. For a less expensive experience in the mornings, dutifully sip your espresso and enjoy your pastry at the bar. You'll look just like a local.
As servers are paid a living wage in Italy, it's not necessary to leave an additional tip on your restaurant bills. The Italian standard is to round up to the next Euro, leaving a little extra change with your receipt.
The weather in Milan is relatively mild year-round. In winter, high temperatures dip to the low 40s but snow, though possible, is not very common. Summers tend to be humid and warm, with temperatures peaking in the mid- to upper 80s. For the most part, though, Milan does not experience extreme conditions, making it good to visit year-round.
