Milano, the capital of fashion
Have you ever thought about disappearing into a city you don’t know? Milan is exactly the place for me… where you go into the streets you don’t know and smile at the people you’ll never see your face in again … and leave yourself hopelessly in the calm arms of the wind. For many, though the country’s grey, snop and naughty boy managed to conquer my heart from day one!
Although slightly more ‘cool’ than other cities in Italy, Milan is a place that attracts you with its history. You feel that from the first time you set foot in the city. People are stylish and well-maintained in a way that gives them the right to be a fashion city. The structures, on the other hand, process the Renaissance spirit into you. If you want to come to Italy and see Milan later, think again, there is something in this city that will attract you too!
When Should He Go To Milan?
Italy is generally known for its temperate climate. However, because Milan is located in the north of Italy, its winters have a warm climate while its harsh terrestrial summers. If you say I’m used to being affected by cold and snow during the winter months, you can opt for prices to be more affordable. Milan summer is both very hot and the tourist season opens to enjoy the city can create trouble. I like to calm those who say that the spring months are for you. Both prices are more reasonable and you can take this opportunity while Crazy tourist groups have not yet stepped into the city. The only thing you should not forget is to take your umbrella with you! Milan famous for its grey weather and rain…

Milan card’s price is 24 hours: 7 euros, 48 hours: 13 euros, 72 hours: 19 Euros. Metro ticket prices are 1.5 euro for single use. We opted for a 48-hour Milan Card, and we understood at the end of the trip how much we had the right choice. Although we went on foot to many places, if we didn’t get the Milan card we would have spent a lot more than 13 euros with transfers and commutes. The card also has many advantages such as free museum entrance, restaurant discounts etc. Those who wonder can examine the details of the card at this address.
