Whether you are interested in fashion, art, music or food, Milan is fabulous any time of year
If you could visit one place in Europe this winter, where would it be?
I’m going first!
I’m picking Milan because Milan is the combination of all the good things in life. Good quality food, wonderful weather, and beautiful buildings. It is a classical city with a rich and interesting history, plus friendly people, oh and the fashion, the fashion.
I love Milan in the winter for so many reasons. The weather is mild, despite some rain and some foggy days during the winter season, Milan keeps all its charm, even with the drizzle. What’s more, during the winter months there are many cultural and fun events taking place all over the city.
Read on for some inspiration on how to fill your days and nights in Milan this winter.
