Galleria Vik Milano is Vik Retreats' first city retreat and debut in Europe. The hotel is ideally located in the historical center of Milan and housed within the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of Italy's most iconic landmarks. Renovated and restored under the leadership of innovators Alex and Carrie Vik, Galleria Vik Milano deftly combines the past and the present. As with all Vik Retreats, architecture and design play a central role at Galleria Vik Milano. The strong architectural features of the hotel are reinforced by hand painted murals and frescos with a focus on Italian artwork, in addition to an extensive collection of international art and a mix of curated contemporary, midcentury, vintage and antique furniture. Galleria Vik Milano features 89 distinctly designed rooms and suites, which have been carefully renovated while maintaining the landmark's original architecture.
