Milan in bloom
Milan, a frenetic city by definition, offers unexpected glimpses of beauty, care and contemplation. In the Brera district, just a stone’s throw from Via Fiori Chiari and Via Fiori Oscuri, are the Botanical Gardens, founded by Marie Theresa of Austria, reminding us of a Milan of the past, dotted with parks, commons and gardens and offering a chance for a close-up look at shapes, colours and fragrances of flowers and plants. Milan in bloom with Elesta is discovery of the city’s botanical and artistic heritage, also through viewing of works preserved in some exceptional museums. Since ancient times, flowers have had meanings that art allows us to trace and experience quite personally. Thanks to the skill of expert artisans, this tour includes a flower arranging session, touching the delicacy, passion, marvel and virtues of this expressive, evocative element.
We can finish with lunch at a restaurant keeping the charme of an old flower shop.
