The earliest mention of the original layout of the Bulgari Hotel garden is found in the Ruralium Commodorum by Piero de Crescenza, from 1305. The fireplace in the lounge, made of black Zimbabwe granite, weighs 15 tonnes. One can visit the adiacent Botanical Garden inside the enormous Palazzo di Brera, which also hosts the Pinacoteca.
On a private street in downtown Milan, between Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, La Scala and the Accademia di Brera, in a tastefully renovated 18th-century Milanese palazzo is The Bulgari Hotel Milano, a five star hotel situated in the cultural and commercial heart of a city that, behind its austere façades, hides delightful and unexpected courtyards and green spaces. One such space is the luxury hotel’s 4,000-square-meter private garden, a natural extension of the nearby Botanical Garden, a restorative oasis of serenity and relaxation in the midst of Milan’s busy pace.
