This Special Offer Includes:
- Three nights’ accommodations (for two people) in a Deluxe Gallery or Grand Gallery Room at Galleria Vik Milano, with complimentary daily breakfast.
- One guided tour (for two people) of the Fondazione Prada: One of the most exciting art institutions in Milan is the foundation started in 1995 by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli. The envelope-pushing museum opened in a Rem Koolhaus–designed space in an industrial area south of the city in the spring of 2015. The transformed former distillery consists of multiple buildings and houses exhibition spaces, as well as a well-stocked bookstore and the Wes Anderson–designed Bar Luce. The Tower houses nine levels, six of which are home to exhibition spaces, while the remaining three are occupied by the 84-seat Restaurant Torre and a panoramic terrace with a rooftop bar. The museum boasts a whopping 120,000 square-feet of exhibition space and is a personal testament to intellectual curiosity and the deep belief in art as communication.
- One guided tour (for two people) at the famous Duomo di Milano–one of the largest cathedrals in the world. Your tour will include tickets to take the elevator up to the roof terraces where, on a clear day, you can see the snow-tipped Alps from between the jutting spires of the cathedral.
- One guided art tour (for two people) of Galleria Vik, hosted by the resident Art Director, to provide behind-the-scenes insight into the property’s extensive contemporary collection. Click here to read more about the property.
- One guided wine tasting (for two people) led by the resident Sommelier, featuring a selection of Vik wines.

About Galleria Vik Milano:
For stylish travelers to Milan, an afternoon of window shopping in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II has always been a must. Now they can find five-star accommodations under the same roof, thanks to Vik Retreats. The hotel brand is largely responsible for turning José Ignacio into the Hamptons of Uruguay with its luxury properties—Estancia Vik, Playa Vik and Bahia Vik—beloved by global jet-setters for their boho-chic atmosphere and eye-catching art. Now, after opening a vineyard and hotel in Chile, it has again expanded its portfolio with the launch this spring of Galleria Vik Milano, its first urban hotel and first property in Europe.
Just steps from Milan’s most famous landmark, the striking Duomo di Milano, the Vik Milano is situated inside the bustling 19th-century neoclassical Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, named for the last king of Italy and one of the oldest indoor shopping centers in the world, where its fashionable neighbors include Prada, Versace and Giorgio Armani. It occupies the former TownHouse Galleria, which has been completely renovated with artistic touches characteristic of the brand’s Uruguayan properties. Upon entering the lobby, guests are greeted by Auguste Rodin’s famous sculpture The Thinker and a mythologically inspired ceiling fresco, while pieces by contemporary Italian and South American artists fill the halls and the 90 guest rooms, each of which is unique. There are two on-site dining options: the all-day V Bar & Restaurant, overlooking the arcade, and the Neapolitan pizzeria I Dodici Gatti, on the hotel’s rooftop.
