Climate & Weather in Milan

Come rain or shine, tourism in Milan never stops. There’s always something going on whether it’s fashion related or corporate. Every day thousands of people pour into the city, waiting to get a glimpse of what it has to offer. Basically, Milan’s one of these cities that people travel to all year long despite the weather. If you’re traveling from a place that’s warm, it might take you a little bit more time to adjust to the cooler temperatures in Milan during the winter. Milan in the summertime is pleasant, and the temperature’s much cooler than other places in Italy. It's the perfect time to enjoy all the exciting things to do in Milan.

There’s no right or wrong time to visit Milan because people aren’t generally visiting Milan for the weather itself. However, Milan does attract a number of Italian tourists from other regions in the summer because the weather’s much more bearable than where they are. There’s an average of 75% humidity in Milan, which is super high compared to the rest of the country. This is the reason why Milan experiences so many thunderstorms a year with an average of 49 occurring throughout the year, but this is what adds to the atmosphere; who doesn’t love a good thunderstorm?

Artisanal Italian Dinner / Lunch with Wine Pairing

We had an amazing dinner!! The food was great, but it became secondary to the amazing people we met. The wonderful atmosphere came together with great organic wines.

Artisanal Italian Dinner / Lunch with Wine Pairing

I had a wonderful evening with Valentina and Marco. They were gracious hosts who were extremely knowledgable about food and wine, and made a solo traveler feel very welcomed in Milan. The food they prepared was wonderfully delicious! It was also a lot of fun to learn about Milan from the view of a local. Valentina also went out of her way to make a reservation at one of their favorite restaurants the next evening for me. The evening ended a bit too soon, but I look forward to the next trip to Milan! Will be inviting myself back for sure.

The Milanese enjoy long sunshine hours with an average of 9 hours a day, which is why one of the favorite things to do in the evening in Milan is to sit outside on the cobbled streets enjoying a cocktail or a glass of wine.
