Principe di Savoia
Piazza della Republica 17, Porta Nuova
When you think of a luxurious old-world European hotel, chances are good the image you have in your head looks a lot like the Principe di Savoia. The hotel opened in the 1920s and still conveys an Art Deco feeling. The sumptuous interiors make generous use of marble, polished wood, silk, and gold, and it’s not unusual to find a hand-painted fresco in your room. The place is truly old-school, down to the mature waitstaff and ornate flatware. The best part may be the swimming pool, which almost looks like an ancient Roman bath and has made appearances in films like Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere.
