Milan presents an opportunity to savour unique experiences and emotions, in line with one’s preferences.
CULTURE: Culture with a capital C animates world-class museums, including the Palazzo Reale (the Royal Palace of Milan), the Castello Sforzesco Museums, the Pinacoteca di Brera (Brera Art Gallery), the Triennale di Milano, the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea (PAC) and the Galleria d’Arte Moderna (GAM - the Modern Art Gallery) just to name a few. All locations are reachable on foot from the Hotel St. George or in just a few minutes via the metro (with the Metro 1 Porta Venezia stop being only 100 metres away).
MOVIDA MILANESE: The Movida Milanese (Milanese Nightlight) is buzzing along the Navigli (a series of interconnecting canals), with one stand out being Corso Como, closed to traffic and overlooked by the most modern of the city’s skyscrapers, whilst also animating chic Milanese clubs located in the adjacent Via Vittor Pisani (two names: Ricci and Metropolis). The renowned Ristorante Giannino—frequented by the VIPs of various realms—is just 5 minutes’ walk from the Hotel.
THEATRES: The theatre scene prides itself on some sites not to be missed: from the prestigious Teatro alla Scala located in the Piazza della Scala, to the Teatro Nuovo in Piazza San Babila.
CONCERTS: The main locations in Milan for concerts, musical events or shows are the Mediolanum Forum in Assago, the Fiera Milano and Fieramilanocity, the Alcatraz and the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium—all of which are easily reachable from the Hotel St. George thanks to its strategic and central position.
BETWEEN 2 AND 5 MINUTES ON FOOT: Corso Buenos Aires: one of the privileged addresses for Milanese shopping (with shops like Zara, Intimissimi, Anthony Morato, Nike, Guess, Calvin Klein Jeans, Lush and Limoni meaning all product categories are present). Metro 1: the Porta Venezia stop is just 100 metres away. From here, alight at the second stop then head to the very central San Babila; at the third stop, you reach Piazza Duomo to discover its Duomo (Cathedral), the Palazzo Reale exhibitions, as well as the Prada, Gucci, Solo Inter and MaxMara shops.
Metro 3: Repubblica stop, to directly reach Montenapoleone or Porta Romana. AROUND 10 MINUTES ON FOOT: Milano Centrale: ideal for reaching Milan and for short excursions during extensive stays in the city (trains depart from the Milano Centrale station for Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and the Borromean Islands, Lake Garda and Verona, in addition to the main Italian cities). Pavilion of Contemporary Art, Gallery of Modern Art, Milan Natural History Museum and the Indro Montanelli Public Gardens: travel along a short stretch of Corso Buenos Aires, reach Corso Venezia and explore some of the main museums of the city.
IN 5 MINUTES BY TAXI: Garibaldi Station: the high-speed Italo train departs from here, connecting Milan to Rome in less than three hours and Milan to Turin in under 45 minutes.
