The best time to visit Milan

Milan has a humid subtropical climate that brings hot, balmy summers and cold, fog-filled winters. The summer months from July to September are the warmest months, with temperatures hovering around 25 to 30 degrees, however, most small business owners, shopkeepers and hoteliers take time off in August, meaning holidaymakers are likely to miss out on many of the city’s authentic local gems at this time. Visit in the spring months of April and May to take advantage of the rising temperatures, blooming flowers and Milan Fashion Week excitement. The autumn shoulder months of September and October are also a great time to visit.
