Literally down the street from Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece “The Last Supper,” this charming family-owned 19th-century guesthouse is furnished with antiques and has a private courtyard perfect for relaxing. The 16 comfortable guest rooms feature patterned bedspreads and hardwood floors, as well as spacious bathrooms; there are a number of single rooms ideal for solo travelers. Though amenities are few (no mini-bars, restaurant or gym), service is warm and attentive, and a lovely breakfast spread is included in the price.
Though there’s not much in the immediate area besides the famous painting, Cadorna Station is about a five-minute walk, from where you can take the Malpensa Express to and from the airport, or a subway to easily get around town.
