Castello Visconteo stands out among other historic hotels in Italy due to its unique premises inside a medieval fortress and convenient vicinity to both downtown Milan and the Bergamo airport.
Its construction was commissioned in 1261 by Milan’s archbishop Ottone Visconti, with the final stone being set in 1295. It has served different purposes over the past centuries: from being a temporary residence for the government authorities known as the Signoria, to a military stronghold, a courthouse, army barracks and even a prison. Today it is a unique Hotel in Northern Italyoffering luxury services and suggestive rooms.
Nowadays its imposing walls enclose an exclusive, one of a kind hotel offering spacious accommodations equipped with modern amenities that blend with an ancient atmosphere. Some of the bedrooms were actually used by illustrious figures of the past, as highlighted by the frescoes and portraits that decorate the structure’s halls.
Host unforgettable business meetings, corporate events, private gatherings or celebrate the wedding ceremony of your dreams at our courtyard and the three halls that comprise our congress center.
