May in Milan is a wonderful month. It’s when the balmy weather starts to kick in, just before the steaminess of late June, and the just about unbearable heat of July.
The temperature hovers around 24 or 25°C in May, and those from northern European nations will find that coats are just not necessary.
Jeans can become too hot and sweaty in this period, and I just find the things too heavy from June onwards.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
However the best thing about this period is the late evenings/nights, because they are balmy enough to encourage you to sit outside chatting over a cool beer.
May is a great time to come to Italy too. It’s not high season, so prices are reasonable. The kids are still at school, so the holiday resorts have yet to become chaotic.
Yep, May is probably one of the best months to come and do a spot of sight seeing, or just for a quick weekend city break.
Go on, do yourself a favour, come to Italy in May.
