Packing for Milan
If you’re travelling to Milan for the summer expect hot and humid weather. July is the hottest month with an average temperature of 28°C. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are musts and it’s also wise to pack some long-sleeved shirts to keep those arms under wraps and away from the sunshine. Winters are cold and foggy and mostly dry with the mountains to the north protecting the city from biting winds and wet seasons.
