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?

Da Vinci's Sforza Castle: Skip the Line

We had a perfect time in Sforza Castle with Laura Serena. She knew everything about the people and the history, was very entertaining and we learned a lot about Milans history. Our daughters also enjoyed ot. The only problem in the castle, which isnt Lauras fault: The Da Vinci Fresco is under restoration and can't be watches. Otherwise a great day.

Milan Tour with a Local

Great tour. Lots of quirky interesting facts and great variety of knowledge. Would recommend this tour if you want a good tour of the main focal points of Milan. Loved the interweaving of folklore legends and facts in his narrative and each member of our party of four learned something new.

Milan's Ancient District Tour

I needed a friendly local to show me around Milan's historical center and Salvatore more than fit the bill. He has a great knowledge of Milan's culture, history and local cuisines and I tested him plenty with my questions. Really friendly and patient and a good English.

Thanks Salvatore : ).
