Eat, Pray and Love in Milan
Book a Four Seasons Bali, Pray, Love package, then continue your journey with a day in Milan, where you can take in a performance at the famous La Scala opera house.
Updated August 9, 2010—Four Seasons guests are invited to explore the mysteries of Bali with the Bali, Pray, Love package, inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert’s popular book, Eat, Pray, Love. This experience explores the culinary, spiritual and romantic treasures of this lush Indonesian island. Those who want to continue on the path toward their own balance can extend the journey in Milan. They will be connected with their own personal travel guru for one perfect day of customised concierge service.
Gilbert calls the Italian portion of her journey the “Pursuit of Pleasure,” and it’s hard to find a more apt description for this supremely lovely country, with its world-changing art, passionate people and divine cuisine.
The Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Milano shares a taste of the possibilities that await travellers in cosmopolitan Milan:
A Day in Milan
Options abound for chances to eat, pray and romance in Milan that you and your personal Concierge will have difficulty narrowing them down.
For the most radiant range of cuisine, you may want to sample the Tuscan fare at Bice, or try Boeucc, the city’s oldest restaurant founded in 1696, after a transcendent performance at the nearby La Scala. Enjoy the cuisine and the lovely courtyard at Don Lisander on Via Manzoni, or dine on authentic Italian pizza and watch the beautiful people at Paper Moon. Enjoy the homemade pasta, wonderful wines and friendly atmosphere at Osteria del Binari or stop in for a warm welcome and sublime seafood at Giacomo Milano.
To explore Milan’s spiritual side, one only has to look up—at one of more than 50 churches, including Sant’Ambrogio (Milan’s patron saint), the breathtaking Duomo or the lovely Santa Maria delle Grazie, home to Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper.” And, of course, the Hotel itself is a former convent, and full of mystery and beauty.
Milan as a city is romance personified, but if you long to drink it all in, wander through the streets of the Brera district, exploring the shops, galleries and secluded cafés.
The Journey Begins
The adventure starts in Bali, and the offer continues until December 20, 2011. For more information, visit FourSeasons.com.
