A city that is always on the move, Milan is big, fast-paced and creative. Milan’s love for fashion and soccer is legendary, while its awe-inspiring art and architecture draws tourists from all over the world. Spring months from April – May are a good time to visit the city before the summer crowds roll in. You can also avoid the large crowds in fall, from September – October. However, Milan Fashion Week for women commences in September, so try to book your accommodation in advance to get a choice of rooms at reasonable prices. November – March sees a dip in temperature as well as tourism. The weather is cold and wet, but this is a good time to score attractive deals and bargains on room rates and cheap flights to Milan. The peak tourist season is from June – August. Summers are hot and average temperatures range from 80 – 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Festivals such as Milan Food Week and Milan Film Festival also take place during this time.
