To relax, Milan’s got spas, urban baths, hipster barbers and hidden swimming pools. While the city is always in a hurry, it also knows how to calm down - in a very chic way.
Unquestionably, Milan isn’t exactly the best destination for a relaxing holiday, but it is precisely because of its busy character that it offers many opportunities for a regenerating break, even for the busiest business man, for just a few hours and in an absolutely trendy way.
In the fashion and design capital, walking around in your bathrobe should be done in style, and spas have become increasingly popular in recent years. Hotels feature excellent ones and organize Sunday spa-brunches, in the centre, thermal baths replaced an old municipal swimming pool, where locals go to attempt getting a tan, have a drink and spend quality time on Sundays. Another option for men to get some special treatment is a trendy barber that started with a simple shop in town now has branches all over Europe.
Outside, traffic, within the ancient Spanish Walls, a secret garden that hides outdoor hot tubs and even a historic tram. In fact, the baths are held in the Liberty style building of a former location for ATM, Milan public transport. The groundwater is heated at a temperature of 36°C so you can immerse yourself in complete relaxation in the Jacuzzis, under waterfalls and in sensory pools. To fight pollution, you can soothe your lungs in the beneficial salt room, and for stress, the relaxation areas are excellent. Just bring your swimsuit, everything else (bathrobe, towel and slippers are provided).
At the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan a combination of a relax treatment in the spa and their proverbial and indulgent brunch is available. In addition to the admission to the Spa, designed by Patricia Urquiola, comprising a swimming pool, steam room and fitness centre, a relaxing 50-minute body massage and Italian brunch at La Veranda restaurant are also included.
A Milanese barber who has revived a high-quality men’s service for long hipster beards. The first shop was opened in the happening area of Isola, sharing a courtyard with the trendy bar Deus, where locals go to have a drink and show off their barber’s fine work.
An old municipal swimming pool, refurbished and reopened to the public, has become the chicest place to face summer in the city. Two outdoor swimming pools (with heated water), a lawn for sunbathing, background music, design details and a bistro called Un Posto Incredibile, for lunches and aperitifs. On weekends, it’s rather crowded.
