There’s a new luxury address in the Italian fashion capital, and it’s a head-turner. After a meticulous five-year renovation of the 17th century Palazzo Cramer, the Palazzo Parigi Hotel is welcoming guests to the heart of Milan. Star designer Pierre Yves Rochon was entrusted with the decoration, and he chose fine antiques and artwork to deck the historic (marble) halls. Set in a private park in the Brera District, the palace hotel has 98 rooms and suites, each equipped with a private balcony or terrace and designed in one of two styles: Milan (think contemporary Italian) or Paris (classic French).
Guests can expect excellent cuisine from renowned chef Carlo Cracco, who has helmed some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy, at his eponymous eatery. There is also the more casual Caffé Parigi. Along with spa treatments, fitness-minded guests can book private yoga lessons and personal trainers. Other services include pet-sitting, personal shoppers, and private tour guides.
