Hipmunk City Love: Best of Milan Centre Hotels

Milan Centre, or city center, is located in the inner ring of Milan, and corresponds to the thick walls that protected Milan during the Middle Ages. Today, Milan Centre offers visitors plenty of shopping, dining, and sight-seeing. Highlighted spots you won’t want to miss are the mural of The Last Supper; and Duomo, Milan’s Gothic cathedral. Here are five Milan hotels that will keep you in close proximity to Milan Centre.
