Hilton today announced the opening of Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Milan Sesto, Curio Collection by Hilton. Handpicked to be a part of the exclusive collection of one-of-a-kind, independent hotels and resorts celebrated for their individuality, the stunning 16th century property joins more than 55 one-of-a-kind Curio Collection by Hilton hotels around the world, including 10 in Europe – two of which are also in Italy.

Nestled in the greenery of the Parco Nord in Milan, Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Milan Sesto is a 500-year-old prestigious residence that once belonged to the wealthiest and noblest families of Milan. Today, the villa still reflects the spirit and atmosphere of bygone times.

The hotel is conveniently located just a 15-minute drive from the city centre and is close to the Linate and Malpensa Airports and Milan Central Railway Station, offering seamless access to major business, sport and entertainment venues, including the Milano Congressi (MiCo) convention centre and the San Siro stadium. Each of the property’s recently refurbished 77 guest rooms, including 15 suites, is elegantly designed with its own unique style and flair, brilliantly combining historic charm with modern comfort. The hotel also boasts a new fitness centre.

Overlooking the beautiful cloister of the main floor of the villa is the award-winning restaurant Il Vico della Torretta. Led by the young and esteemed chef Angelo Nasta, who has received the prestigious Giallo Milano award twice for serving the best saffron risotto in town, Il Vico della Torretta invites guests to discover the delights of the best traditional Milanese and national level cuisine, accompanied by a sophisticated selection of fine domestic and international wines.

With its enchanting Italian gardens and expansive, yet comfortable, indoor spaces, Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Milan Sesto is the ideal destination for hosting a memorable function or event. Whether inviting guests to a magical wedding on the property’s fairytale-like courtyard, charming banquet in the hotel’s elegantly frescoed ballroom or prestigious conference in its 258-seat amphitheatre, Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Milan Sesto offers a sophisticated venue for every occasion.
