There is no “wrong” time to visit Milan. From endless fashion shows to the opportunity to visit an authentic Italian town, Milan boasts plenty of activities for every season. While April – June feature the best temperatures for travel, Milan offers events and festivals year-round. From January – March, temperatures are at their lowest (3 – 10 degrees Celsius), but the city also hosts their annual Fashion Week events. From April – June, the skies are filled with sunlight, fresh rain, and antique markets, courses for art and fashion, and more. Temperatures average 13 – 23 degrees Celsius. From July – September, you will experience the warmest months (20 – 25 degrees Celsius), and the pace of the city slows down. It is the ideal season for sipping coffee at a café and just soaking up the local atmosphere. October – December brings along holiday decorations, All Saints’ Day observances, music festivals, and temperatures ranging from 4 – 15 degrees Celsius.

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Milan

Lots of Birds

Milan is heavily populated with pigeons which flock to the Piazza Duomo. Do not feed the pigeons while in the city centre or they will tend to surround you.

Milanese are Not the Relaxed Type

While most of Italy is about enjoying the time passing by, the Milanese believe in hard work. The city itself is highly fast-paced and most people go about their business without noticing those around them.

Bars Mean Cafés

When someone tells you to visit a particular “bar,” they are actually referring to cafés.

Pack an Umbrella

Milan has more rain than other parts of Europe and it is hard to find umbrellas locally. Therefore, packing one for the journey will keep you dry for the random rain storms.

Know the Language

While Milan hosts thousands of tourists, the locals do not speak English. They may understand some English, and staff at local cafés know a standard few words, but it is best that you brush up on your Italian while visiting.
