What you should absolutely know about Milan

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

There are endless possibilities for you during your Milan day trips. Milan offers a great variety of walking tours and they are a great way to see the city. Climb many stairs to access the Duomo Rooftops and see Milan in a whole new way from the air. Be inspired by The Last Supper painting or see a world-class ballet or opera performance at the Teatro alla Scala. Visit a few of the classic art galleries, cheer on a football game at the San Siro Stadium or relax by the waterfront, sipping coffee from a trendy café

Visit the Milan Cathedral and see the inspiring mosaics at the Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. Embrace the art of Leonardo Da Vinci at the L’Ultima Cena and truly experience the darkness at the Dialogo nel Buio

Milan is famous for its veal and for its Cassoeula, pork and cabbage stew. Savor polenta, steaming bowls of minestrone soup, and Michetta, bread and salami as a snack. Enjoy buttery cannoncino and creamy regional dish of Risotto allo Zafferano

“Per favore” is “Please” in Italian, “Grazie” means “Thank you”, and “Prego” is “You’re welcome”. To say, “I don’t speak Italian” say, “Non parlo italiano” and “Do you speak English” is “Parla inglese?” “Sì” means “Yes” and “Va bene” means “Okay” or “Fine”. You are now completely fluent!

Summers are hot and muggy, with frequent storms and high humidity. Fall weather can be wet and foggy, with 50 to 70-degree weather. Winters are dry, overcast, and bitterly cold, with temperatures in the 20s. Spring weather climbs into the 60s and 70s degrees

Take the train from any of Milan’s airports to the city center for around 18 Euros or a one-way bus ticket for 7 Euros. If you chose to take a taxi into the city, be prepared to spend an expensive 90 Euros for one way

Use Milan’s bike-sharing program called BikeMi to cruise the city at a leisurely pace. Milan also provides trams, trains, subways, and buses for peoples’ use around the city. Take a cab to zoom around Milan or explore Milan on foot
