Lombardy Fashion and Style in Milan and Como Lake Milan is the epicenter of Italian fashion, and shopping around Quadrilatero d’Oro is a really tempting opportunity for anyone visiting the main city of Lombardy. Spending some time discovering Milan, exclusive and elegant as no other city in Italy, can be also the opportunity to be seduced by Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper or admire the architecture of La Scala, the world’s famous classical opera house re-opened in 2004 after three years and 70 millions spent in renovation. Tasting the aperitivo, a Milanese institution you can try in one of the sophisticate and stylish cafè populating the urban area of the city, could be an interesting experience before retiring in one of the many 5 or more stars hotels of the city. Lombardy is full of suggestive and elegant locations where trying what it means real italian style and exclusivity: Como, with its romantic and beatiful lake appreciated by stars as George Clooney or Brad Pitt, or Varese, with its refined elegance and its astonishing green surroundings.

Tuscany Elegance and Charme in Everyday Life Two icons symbolize Tuscany’s elegance and exclusivity in the world: Michelangelo’s David in all its glory, probably the most famous nude sculpture in the world, and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus at the Galleria degli Uffizi (the world’s greatest collection of Renaissance painting housed in the former administrative offices of Cosimo de’ Medici’s court). Tuscany and Florence are absolutely worth of a visit, synonims of sophistication, exclusivity and charme: the classic Tuscan countryside, the vinecovered hills of Chianti, all elements of a region deeply rooted in the hearts of foreign visitors as well as of italian ones. The beatiful Arezzo, with its medieval surroundings, the fascinating Siena, Volterra, Lucca, San Gimignano: cities with no equal in the whole world appear to be almost common in Tuscany, a territory welcoming its visitors with an uncomparable charme and elegance.

Veneto One of the Finest Luxury Regions in Italy When Napoleon and his army descended on Venice in 1797, the French general described this immense open public space—almost 40,000 square feet—as “the drawing room of Europe.” Piazza San Marco is one of the symbol of Venice around the globe, and the city itself, with its romantic canals, bridges, and 17th-century palaces overlooking the water is such an exclusive destination which is said to be worth of a visit at least once in a lifetime. But Venice is not the only exclusive destination of Veneto, a region absolutely to be discovered with a wide offer of elegant, luxury and historical accommodations and a cuisine among the most renowed in Italy. Spending some time to discover Veneto could be a perfect opportunity to combine relax with a perfect italian luxury experience.

Villa Principe Leopoldo Hotel & Spa Guests feel regal here, which is no wonder, as the ancient villa is in fact a former Prussian prince’s residence. Situated high above the Gulf of Lugano, in the tranquillity and privacy of the exclusive ‘Golden Hill’, an elegant, sun-kissed residential area, and surrounded by a cultivated park scenery, this exceptional boutique hotel offers 75 first-class suites and rooms, newly renovated. The tastefully arranged spacious rooms, the terraces with breathtaking panoramic views over the lake and the surrounding mountains, two heated outdoor pools, tennis courts and a wide range of sports facilities leave nothing to be desired. Neither does the exquisite Mediterranean cuisine of Dario Ranza, served in the light-flooded gourmet restaurants.
