About Milan

Milan is the second-most populous city in Italy and one of Europe's most accessible cities. The city is located within Italy's northern Lombardy region and was once the capital of the Western Roman Empire. Milan has a vast cultural offering and an impressive artistic heritage, famously known as the home of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. The architectural excellence is a prime example of the city's evolving creativity where neoclassical Milanese palaces can be found a short distance from ultra-modern towers. Milan continues to provide a sense of elegance and sophistication and is globally recognised as a city of fashion and design.



Milan has a typically Mediterranean climate, with temperatures ranging from 18ºc to 27ºc in June.



The currency in Milan is the Euro (€). Most businesses in Milan accept either debit or credit cards, however, we do recommend to keep some cash on hand. ATMs are available at airports, train stations and throughout the city. For current exchange rates visit: www.xe.com



Electrical sockets take standard European two-pin plugs. We advise that you bring adaptors with you, which can usually purchase at your departure airport.
