From the panoramic terrace of the Best Western Hotel City you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Milanese skyline while sipping a drink.
Starting from Expo, the city has had a rapid vertical development with the construction of some of the most beautiful skyscrapers in Italy that give to the city an international allure.
