Officially a commune in the region of Lombardy, nestled within the shadow of Milan within the official province just 10 kilometres up the road, Bollate is the secret sister that everyone wants a second look at after the first smouldering glance. Hotels in Bollate offer a glimpse into the Italian side of life that the larger cities cannot compare to. It wouldn't matter if this were your first time to Italy or your hundredth, staying in one of the HRS hotels in Bollate means experiencing the true Italian lifestyle beyond the tourist trappings that most visitors see.
There are few antique markets like the one offered every Sunday year-round in Bollate. With hand-crafted goods and produce available from the surrounding countryside it is the perfect reason to stray away from the hotels in Bollate. If your visit to one of the HRS hotels in Bollate happens to fall during the month of June, the Festival of Villa Arconati offers an international music event that cannot be compared. A cooperation between several municipalities and provinces, this is the premier music event of Northern Italy.
