Peaceful Elegance

One of my favorite cities is Milan and when I went there I discovered the beautiful Four Seasons hotel on Via Gesu. The moment I stepped in there I was taken by the beauty of this place combine by the amazing history behind it.

The hotel is set in a former 15th century convent built in the Renaissance style featuring beautiful restored frescoes, vaulted ceilings, and a beautiful spiral grand stair. The interiors of the hotel are done with the best of contemporary Italian style to highlight the beautiful architecture of the building.

My favorite thing about the hotel was the frescoes you can see all over the place that remind you of the rich history of the place but also blend perfectly with the decor giving you a sense of peace while you enjoy your coffee with biscotti.

By the way, the hotel is located right in the heart of the Fashion District just a few steps from Gucci, Armani, Versace and Valentino - just to name a few!

I leave you day dreaming of this beautiful place wishing you a great Thursday!
