Milan (Milano) does not seem like a great winter vacation destination to visit in Italy, which is exactly why winter is an excellent time to see Milan!
There’s no better season to take in the city’s historic sites, boutiques and restaurants at a leisurely pace than during the first months of the year when the crowds are lighter.
That’s especially important in a city that attracts more than 2 million visitors a year.
Located at the foot of the Alps, Italy’s largest city does not boast the hot and dry climate of its southern counterparts Rome and Naples.
But what Milan lacks in warm weather, beaches and palm trees, it more than makes up for in culture, fashion and food.
Milan has always been a rich and important city.
It has always been a place full of various famous artists and offers a particular assortment of churches, buildings and monuments.
