Holidays in Milan
Despite being the cultural hub and business center of Italy, the Milanese people are still very traditional and try to uphold as many cultural, political, and religious celebrations as possible. It’s a time when family members come together, feast, celebrate, and remember.
Milan is just as religious as the rest of the country, and religious feasts and celebrations see the city come to a standstill. Everything closes its doors to the public, including all the major tourist sites of Milan. It’s a great opportunity for you to mix with the locals and learn more about their history and culture. Italians are warm and welcoming, and a national or regional holiday is usually celebrated with large family meals at home, religious masses, and parties and parades in the city’s squares.
