Set within the leafy green harbor of its own private park, bordering Milan's Botanical Gardens, Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Milano offers travelers a stylish haven secluded from the flurry of Italy's most fashionable city. Common areas are a feast for the senses, decorated with an inspired use of rare and precious materials, while the Bulgari's luxurious guestrooms feature teak and oak detailing and glossy Italian wood furniture, with large windows that overlook the tranquil gardens below. Each bathroom is a work of art with modern lines and sleek surfaces. Carved from a block of Turkish Bihara stone, you'll be tempted to float away in the tub.
