Visit Milan, Italy
Best Time To Visit
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).
Know Before Visiting
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.
