Concierge.com's insider take:
When the Gianfranco Ferré spa opened at the back of the designer's new Quadrilatero d'Oro store in 2004, it was a first for Milan; way back then, the Italian fashion capital was decidedly short on serious pamper-lounges where busy fashionistas could dip in for an hour or so. Today, Milanese residents have a variety of day spas to choose from. One of the most exclusive—though, like the Ferré version, it's run by global players ESPA—is the Bulgari Hotel Spa, thanks to its location (secluded, but close to the fashion strip) and stunning minimalist design. New arrivals include the Ancient Rome–themed Aquae Calidae—where you can pop in for a lunchtime facial or book the whole place for a toga party treatment session with friends—and Culti Day Spa, the spa offshoot of Alessandro Agrati's cool, chill-out lifestyle brand.
