Bulgari Hotel Milano – Italy
Bulgari Hotel Milano is probably the most refined and exclusive establishment in #Milan, a boutique property adjacent to the most important shopping street, Via Montenapoleone.
A five star hotel situated in the cultural and commercial heart of a city that, behind its austere façades, hides delightful and unexpected courtyards and green spaces.
One such space is the luxury hotel’s 4,000-square-meter private garden, a natural extension of the nearby Botanical Garden, a restorative oasis of serenity and relaxation in the midst of Milan’s busy pace..
What we liked most
The classic summertime picnic is reimagined thanks to a new experience that lets guests enjoy lunch or dinner outside at Il Giardino all summer long. Packed up in a basket the traditional way, the picnic set feeds groups of two to six and features a menu created by Chef Niko Romito in collaboration with Dom Pérignon, who provide the bubbles for the occasion. A taste of the season, Italian style, for a gorgeous break — and is especially enchanting at sunset, when the garden glows with lantern light.
The fireplace in the lounge, made of black Zimbabwe granite, weighs 15 tonnes.
The comfortable rooms overlook the Bulgari's magical garden and the neighbouring Botanical Gardens. Enjoy a blend of modern designs with high technology features.
