The Grand Hotel et de Milan was recommended because it was very close to La Scala and also because it had been the home (temporarily) for Caruso, Maria Callas and Verdi (among others). This was certainly appealing to an opera fan who was also going to attend an event at La Scala. I was rewarded with not only the proximity to the La Scala but a great number of the sights of Milan. I had been told that Milan was a polluted, inudstrial city -- what a misrepresentation. Milan is a delightful city with lots to see and enjoy -- the ability to relax and enjoy was only enhanced by my stay at this hotel. I travel alone and am well aware of the trials and tribulation sometimes encountered by single travellors. I had none of that at the Grand. Everything I asked for -- suggestions for dinner , service requests etc. were handled so professionally. Whilel I did have to leave to return to Canada, I certainly didn't want to have my stay at the Grand end -- I look forward to returning and absorbing some more of this wonderful city and the wonderful people at the Grand.
