From 1st September 2020, The Grand Hotel et de Milan reopened its doors to guests with a special package for those staying in one of the suites dedicated to the hotel’s legendary guests ranging from Verdi to Hemingway, Maria Callas to Vittoria De Sica. The offering will include a personal tour of the special rooms each full of history.  During the tour, guests will be regaled with tales of Verdi’s arias being sung from balconies, love letters between poet and painter, romantic dalliances and more.

Opened in 1863, this famous hotel is steeped in history, having hosted so many luminaries throughout the years. Considered to be the best hotel in Milan, The Grand Hotel et de Milan offers elegant rooms furnished with antiques and works of art in an enviable location. It is situated in the heart of the city, close to the financial district, the Scala Opera House, the fashion district and the Duomo.

The hotel’s restyling, keeping with its traditional flair includes the discreet and refined Gerry’s Bar. A rich palette of pinks, greens and golden hues compliment the precious velvets, silks and jacquards between the hall and bar. New life is infused into the hotel’s marble surfaces, works of art and the 19th-century fireplace. Throughout the property, decadent furniture, luxurious fabrics, embroidery and floral patterns flourish, highlighted by the soft and welcoming lighting.
