Local landmark

The Principe’s impressive neoclassical façade is a well-known Milanese landmark, proudly situated on Piazza della Repubblica. For the best photos, play around with different angles to achieve an interesting perspective. A bright sunny day with a blue-sky backdrop will really make your images ‘pop’.

Keys to success

Our concierge desk gets a lot of attention thanks to its helpful staff and a photogenic array of 260 key holders from the original guestrooms and suites. Ask one of the team if you can step behind the counter for a photo and, as they’re used to these requests, they’ll happily take the photos for you too.

See you under the chandelier

Just past the lobby is our grand staircase, which is the most photographed area of the hotel thanks to our spectacular five-tiered glass chandelier. This place is particularly popular during Milan Fashion Week, when all the fashionistas vie for photos from this dazzling location. For the best angle shoot from the ground floor looking up into the light.

Surround yourself with crystals

The glittering veil of Swarovski crystals surrounding the beautiful Tavolo Cristallo, in our Acanto Restaurant, has become another sought-after spot for capturing memorable moments. When we aren’t hosting romantic dinners for two or unique family celebrations, grab your chance to create a magical memory of your own.

Hollywood movie moment

If you get chance to discover our unique Pompeii style pool in the Presidential Suite it’s certainly something you’ll want to capture on camera. Exclusively accessible to selected guests, the suite is lauded as one of the world’s most exceptional hotel suites and the pool has starred in a Hollywood film. Recreate the scene from Sophia Coppola’s film, Somewhere, when the actors dive into the pool.

City skyline at sunset

Visit our rooftop spa and step out onto its Club 10 Fitness & Beauty Center terrace for a spectacular 360-degree view of the city skyline. On a clear day you can see all the way from the world-famous Duomo to the nearby Porta Nuova with its sleek skyscrapers. Time your visit to coincide with the sunset to really make the most of the amazing light and create a stand out shot for your social media feed.
