What to expect in Milan
The shopping and designer fashion capital of Europe, Milan boasts street upon street of the most famous designer brands but also a host of wonderful outdoor markets and smaller local boutiques for those with a tighter budget. Urban and sprawling, Milan is a business city obsessed with football and fashion. Twice a year it becomes the heart of the fashion world as it hosts spring and autumn fashion fairs that fill the city with paparazzi. However there are also magnificent churches and palaces for those more cerebral visitors, one which is home to the exquisite Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper which is more beautiful than any Gucci handbag. Opera houses, theatres, medieval fortresses, galleries and museums and lively bars, restaurants and bistros are all ideal for whiling away warm summer evenings steeped in culture and cool in this hip Italian city.
Spring and autumn are when the temperature is at its balmiest. August gets hot and summers in general can be humid; many businesses close as locals leave for their holidays. March and October are the months to be in town for fashionistas as major collections are launched. Football fans will want to visit in September as the season kicks off.
Milan is not a cheap city but there are budget options for food and drink. Breakfast can be found from £3*, lunch from £5* and dinner for two with wine from £35*. There are plenty of tapas bars and fast food places to choose from. Accommodation ranges from hotels to B&B, pensions and some budget options.
