Should I travel during Milan Fashion Week?


Chiuso per Ferie: This is the sign you need to know when you're visiting Milan on certain times of the year. For example, if you plan to travel to Milan in the summer, know that many locals take a vacation break from the heat in August and head to the beaches in the south. In the winter, many hotels close because of the weather.

The best time to go to Milan is during the shoulder season of spring and fall, when temperatures hover between 60s and 70s. Also, during the spring and fall is when the Milan Fashion Week happens.


The Milan Fashion Week happens every season during the year. For women: April, September and February. For men, June and January. You may also want to check out the Milano Film Festival in the summer and Milano Musica in late fall. You can find live fashion show streaming here.


With thousands of boutiques, emporia and high-end items to buy, it seems impossible to save money when traveling to Milan. However, budget conscious travelers should consider:

1. Many churches, museums and attractions in Milan are free and open throughout the year.

2. If you visit in the off peak season, you can enjoy less crowd and cheaper accommodations.

3. Eating like the locals is one of the best ways to save money and enjoy the culture of Italy.
