Milan is the capital of Lombardy and is located in the north-western
part of Italy. The city has a warm sea climate (type Cfa according to
the Köppen climate classification) with reasonably cold winters and
warm summers. During the winter snow may cause public life to come to
a halt when 10-20 centimeters of snow covers the streets in December
and January. Most of the precipitation falls during spring with a peak
in April and May; 100 millimeters of rain may fall per month during
this period. However, when it doesn’t rain these two months are the
most pleasant to visit Milan. The parks start to blossom and with
temperatures between 16-25 degrees Celsius it is pleasant to stay on
one of the many terraces.
Summers in Milan are warm, reasonably sunny and dry. During the summer
temperatures will mostly be 25 degrees Celsius, every now and then
tropical temperatures in excess of 30 degrees can be recorded. Because

sometimes even in November. During the day the weather is pleasant in
fall. However, evenings and nights may be cold. Bear this in mind and
bring a sweater, jacket or vest.

of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
