Milan is at its nicest in Spring (April, May) and Fall (September, October), when it’s generally pleasant and mild.
Milan is amply served by a network of subway (metropolitana), tram, and bus lines. Single-ride tickets cost $1.70 for the subway, or up to 90 minutes on ATM buses and trams, while day tickets cost $5. Most services run between 6 a.m. and 12.30 a.m., though certain lines run all night on weekends. Taxis can be hailed at a designated taxi stand, and bike sharing services are available, too.
January is the coolest month with an average temperature of 34°F (1°C). July is the hottest month with an average temperature of 73°F (23°C).
Many businesses are closed most of August, if not the whole month. Otherwise, restaurants are generally open from noon until 2:30 p.m. for lunch, and 7 until 11 p.m. for dinner. Italians observe many public holidays during which banks and stores are closed; the tourism office keeps a list.
