Big, extensive Milan can be overwhelming when first looked. However, it’s not nearly so daunting when you notice that most major attractions are within walking distance from the Duomo, itself Milan’s prime attraction. Following are a few suggestions to guide you towards the many hotels to choose from:

  • Luxury Hotels:

    • A few steps from Piazza Duomo and medieval Piazza Mercanti, art-filled Hotel Spadari al Duomo has a contemporary interior.

    • By contrast Grand Hotel et de Milan has a classic historical aura.

    • There is convenience for both opera lovers and fashionistas which is between La Scala and the Monte Napoleone designer shops.

  • Mid-Range Hotels:

    • On a quiet corner of the street and with flawless service, Gran Duca di York exudes an air of serenity, in spite of its location just off busy Piazza Duomo.

    • A little close to the Duomo are the newly modernized rooms of Hotel La Madonnina.

    • The plain but comfortable Hotel Star is still only a 10-minute walk from the Duomo and La Scala.

  • Budget Hotels:

    • The hospitable Antica Locanda Leonardo is near Santa Maria delle Grazie and The Last Supper, an easy walk to the science museum and historic San Ambrogio.
