Hotel Schlössle: 5-star luxury in medieval Tallinn, Estonia

Medieval 5-star luxury: Hotel Schlössle, Tallinn, Estonia

'Five-star luxury' and 'medieval' weren't two descriptions I'd expect to find in the same sentence let alone the same destination, that is until I experienced a truly gorgeous stay at Hotel Schlössle in the heart of Old Town, Tallinn.

Ciao Milano! How To Do Milan in 24 Hours


Stay at Palazzo Parigi, dine beside the Duomo of Milan at Obicà Mozzarella Bar and Terrazza Aperol, shop for Valentino and at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, take in art & culture at Fondazione Prada, eat at Il Salumaio and Bar Luce, then party at Bar Martini by Dolce & Gabbana AND Cavalli Club.
Ciao, darling! Have you got a minute, or rather 1400 minutes to spare in Milan? Si? Molto bene! With the summer sun shining upon us, 'tis the season for European city breaks: be it a Baltic tour of Riga-Helsinki-Tallinn or London-Paris-Rome or Amsterdam-Berlin-Lisbon; pick n' mix, make it your own.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines...
