Start your day off on a relaxing note at Armani’s exclusive spa. Located in the exclusive Armani Hotel Milan, this spa offers a wide range of treatments to help you and your loved one unwind. Book one of the indulgent couple’s Thai or hot stone massages to get you in the mood. Finish off with a beautiful facial, body wrap, and body scrub. We suggest making a morning of it by booking their half day spa experience: four hours of specialised services with access to their pool and refreshment station, sure to create the perfect Valentine's ambience.
Next, grab some light lunch or satisfy your sweet tooth at this famed and upscale cafe. Pasticceria Marchesi has been in Milan since 1824, and offers a variety of pastries and desserts. Their newest location in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is situated right above Prada (the brands new owner), and offers diners a view of the luxury shopping centre from above. Enjoy a brioche or slice of cake or two while admiring the spectacular plaza.
After you’ve finished lunch, indulge your taste for fashion with a shopping trip to the Antonia boutique. In the Brera District, Antonia houses high fashion collections from Missoni to Valentino. With men’s and women’s collections and the newest arrivals, you’ll both be sure to find something you love. The store’s stylistic and modern layout, designed by Vincenzo de Cotiis, is the perfect backdrop for a his-and-hers shopping spree.
Dinner at Les Pommes will be perfect for your Valentine’s Day. An intimate restaurant with modern decor and soft lighting, a Valentine’s dinner here is as fresh as the food they serve. Their San Valentino menu is €60 and includes five courses with a glass of champagne on arrival. Dishes include prawn-stuffed tortellini with cabbage and smoked burrata, and a white chocolate mousse with raspberries, liquorice, and salted caramel. With the food as delicious as the person accross the table from you, it is the ideal setting for a romantic dinner with your lover.
