    Best Time to Visit

    April, when the streets are a parade of new Spring apparel, and Milan Fashion Week kicks off to showcase the styles of the future.

    What to Pack

    Balancing fashion and function is key, no matter what event brought you to town. Packing light while having flexibility for different times of day is a must, but avoid anything lazy like shorts, or anything too colorful. Stylish and simple will blend in.

    General Tips

    Historically, few cities can match the pedigree of Milan when it comes to visual and performing arts. Having flourished from the Middle Ages, the city boasts one of the finest Gothic works in the world with Milan Catherdal. It is also home to The Last Supper  in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church.

    Leonardo Da Vinci lived in the city from 1482 through 1499. Check the Pinacoteca di Brera, Castello Sforzesco and the Brera Academy for works by Caravaggio and Franceso Hayez.

    Milan too is also home to La Scala, one of the opera world’s most important venues, and as a fashion. Be sure to visit during the Milan Fashion Week in February/ March or September October. The Affordable Art Fair in in March,with Mi Art, the main fair, in April.
