Note that if it's in august (when much of the city shuts down) there may be less available kosher food.

I will be in Milan for one day in July 2012 and then traveling to Florence and Venice.   Plan on staying at Westin using spg points. Are you saying that there will not be kosher food in the summer? Has anyone stayed in The Westin Palace?

Westin Milan was a very nice hotel and 13.5k points is great deal relative to standard room rates.  We ate at Denzel's restaurant which has a Teudah right on the entrance wall.  It was a very good fleishig meal and very reasonably priced.

We're booked for a week in February. Thinking of catching a cheap flight to Venice/Rome and spending the time there instead..... In the meantime, see links below. Please share anything else you find.

Flying via MXP or LIN?

Parents flying into LIN, I'll be flying into MXP

PH Milan supposed to be unbelievable but why are you going to Milan

Going to stay in PH.. Going only if the 130$ r/t ticket is valid.
