In the middle of bustling Milan between Via Torino and Via Falcone you’ll find calming Speronari and its collection of stylish suites. The boho neighbourhood was once home to artisans and arty shops; guests will now find boutiques and exhibition spaces. Spread across six floors, the 19th-century palace is less than a 5-minute walk to Piazza del Duomo and is home to a state-of-the-art sauna and gym.
On-site Argentinian eatery El Porteño is open to guests and the rest of the city alike; tasty plates include empanadas filled with ham and cheese or chicken, and a variety of beef cooked to order on the parrilla. Vegetarians need not worry, they’ve got you covered too with dishes such as crepes with asparagus cream, and beetroot with spinach and salted ricotta. Finish with a dulce de leche-based dessert while sipping on vino from South America or Italy. Live music and tango performances add to the overall experience – why not make an evening of it?
There are, of course, a multitude of top restaurants close by, from contemporary fare at 28 Posti and Trattoria Madonnina with its daily handwritten menu, to seafood sandwiches at Pescaria, and offal-forward meals at Trippa.
With 8 different types of suite and 22 in total, Speronari offers super-comfy spaces decked out in warm, neutral tones, but with an occasional accent of colour and quirkiness – be it on a headboard or feature wall, or a striking chair. Designed by Angus Fiori architects, interiors are by Francesca Attolini, with some pieces by acclaimed Tom Dixon. Amenities include adjustable air-conditioning and heating, Smart LCD TVs with satellite, USB sockets, slippers, and luggage storage.
Eye-catching Gothic Cathedral Duomo is surely top on the list of any visit to Milan? From there, take the 2-kilometre stroll to Cenacolo Vinciano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where Da Vinci’s Last Supper is housed. From there, why not wander through verdant Sempione Park, north-east of the museum.
Day trippers should make the most of the glorious Lakes that lie north of the metropolis – a fast train to Lake Como takes just half an hour. The perfectly still glimmering waters are a wonder indeed.
Back in Milan, partake in an aperitivo hour, an institution for Italians. Sup on a glass of wine or a cocktail and enjoy the array of snacks that will also be presented to you. Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone is a worthy choice, with its rather magical interior courtyard setting away from the hustle – and just a 15-minute jaunt from Speronari too.
Parking is available for €25.00 per night.
