Milan is a city that offers many opportunities for recreation, with its cultural wealth, dynamic and refined nightlife, and the magnificence of Renaissance art. However, what distinguishes Milan internationally is its being an unmissable destination for those who want to experience the best of fashion and design in Italy.

If you’re planning your next trip, here’s where to sleep and what to do in Milan.

What to do in Milan: the Duomo, Brera and the fashion district

Moving from the central and exclusive location of the 5-star hotel Portrait Milano, it is possible to visit the main attractions of the city:

  • the Castello Sforzesco, during the Renaissance one of the most important military cities in Europe; today it is home to prestigious museums, art galleries and institutions
  • the Duomo of Milan, one of the main attractions of the city and of the whole country, with its spiers and sculptures, represents one of the highest examples of Italian Gothic architecture
  • Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, another important landmark of the city, a covered shopping arcade in Art Nouveau style, full of shops, restaurants and bars
  • the Brera district, with the Pinacoteca and the painters’ galleries, the Teatro alla Scala for fans of classical music and opera; finally, the fundamental green lung of the city, the Sempione Park, an important meeting point for citizens and visitors

Another suggestion on what to do in Milan is to get lost in the fashion district, the Italian fashion district par excellence, at the center of which the new piazza del Quadrilatero has hosted the luxury boutique hotel Portrait Milano since November 2022.

Where is Portrait Milano located? Discovering the fashion district: “The Quadrilatero”

The Quadrilatero offers a vast choice of high fashion boutiques. But it’s not just the luxury brands that attract tourists and visitors: the architecture of the buildings that house these boutiques is in itself reason enough to visit. Among the most famous we can mention the Palazzo Morando, seat of the Costume and Fashion Museum, and the Royal Palace, which often hosts art and cultural exhibitions.

The Quadrilatero is not just a place to shop: the area is also full of restaurants, cafés and bars, where you can taste Milanese and Italian cuisine. Furthermore, this area is very well connected with the rest of the city, thanks to the presence of several metro stations.

Precisely in this contemporary and refined context, stands the latest of the Lungarno Collection boutique hotels: the Portrait Milano, a luxury hotel in central Milan.

Where to sleep in central Milan: the Portrait Milano for a romantic stay or a holiday for the whole family

For a vacation or a weekend in Milan, the Hotel Portrait Milano is the ideal place for those who want to stay in the center of the fashion city. A few minutes walk from the centrally located Duomo of Milan, and from other symbolic places of the city, the many solutions proposed with the 73 rooms and luxury suites of the boutique hotel signed Lungarno Collection, allow you to live a unique and personalized experience.

On the upper floors of the evocative Archbishop’s Seminary, with interior design by architect Michele Bönan, the encounter between Renaissance monumentality and the elegant contemporary touch of the Fifties-style Milanese residences is sublimed.
