What to Pack

Milan is known for its humid subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. It is the fourth hottest city in Europe (average daily temperature in summer is about 21 degrees Celsius/70 degrees Fahrenheit), the second wettest and it sees plenty of fog and smog. Winters in Milan are damp, summers are muggy and thunderstorms are common due to the city’s humidity and high precipitation. But no matter the weather, the Milanese always put their best foot forward when it comes to fashion. Prada, Gucci, Armani, Fendi, Ferragamo—if you’ve got it, pack it. One of the biggest giveaways that you’re not from Milan is what you wear on your feet. Athletic sneakers are a no-no, particularly if you’re hitting the town at night. During the day when you’ll be sightseeing or shopping, a smart but comfortable pair of shoes will do the trick—think loafers for men or flats for ladies. Pack a raincoat (and a travel umbrella you can stash in your bag) no matter what time of year you visit Milan, but particularly for a trip in spring, fall or in August. It rarely snows (the city receives fewer than 10 days of snow a year) but winters do get very chilly, especially at night. Pack a warm winter coat, gloves and scarf.
