Excelsior Hotel Gallia, A Luxury Collection Hotel

A revitalized art deco grand dame in Milan
Excelsior Hotel Gallia, A Luxury Collection Hotel is an art deco landmark and a chic beacon for Milan’s latest “it” neighborhood, Porta Nuova.

Renovated in 2015, with a nod to the decadence of the Jazz Age, the hotel’s gorgeous design and tech-forward accommodations bring Gatsby into the 21st century. The 1932 hotel is now composed of the original building and a connected, new glass-and-steel tower — the combination of old and new is all thoroughly modern Milan at its finest.

Perhaps a less flashy perk but useful nonetheless, the hotel’s location across the street from the city’s central train station makes it convenient for business travelers.

The Restaurants
  • Perched on Excelsior Gallia's seventh floor, Terazza Gallia is the hotel's distinctive rooftop restaurant and bar. The dynamic dining room is helmed by chefs (and brothers) Vincenzo and Antonio Lebano under the guidance of the acclaimed Cerea family, resulting in a masterful blend of traditional Italian recipes with modern flair, all paired with exquisite Italian wine, of course. 
  • The culinary prowess of the Lebano brothers takes center stage with two signature tasting menus, featuring exquisite dishes like Mediterranean Essence, a pasta cooked in fish soup that’s accompanied by tapioca and plankton-infused micro tempura balls.

  • While these tasting menus showcase their exceptional talents, the brothers’ equally appetizing à la carte option allows guests to savor a diverse range of delectable dishes crafted with the same culinary finesse.

  • Start your day with a memorable breakfast at Gallia Restaurant on the ground floor. For a traditional Italian espresso, head to the cozy Gallia Lounge & Bar. It's a perfect spot for savoring rich flavors in a delightful setting.
  • Venture to the Cigar Lounge for an intimate space where you can indulge in fine cigars and top-shelf liquors.
