You’re in an elegant part of town. The florist below is like an art gallery and shoppers get their fix nearby. No need to worry about noise though; the apartments are in a historic Liberty style building in a leafy residential area. Both have high ceilings and period details, beds are good, the linen is first-rate, and – a rarity for Italy – towels are fluffy.
Casa Broggi, on the first floor, has a homely feel with a mix of antique pieces and paintings, and a sparkling green mosaic bathroom. The kitchen (with hob but no oven) is great for the basics. Little Broggi, on the third floor, is bright, cheery, and ideal for couples or friends. Many of the furnishings in the colour-themed rooms have a story to tell; the kitchens have all you need and Jane leaves a welcome hamper of local goodies.
Stroll to a tree-lined park, have an aperitivo at GUD (best to book), eat wonderful Milanese food at a huge choice of restaurants.
