Spending Springtime in Milan: What To Expect

March 27, 2021
Oftentimes, people think that the best time to go to Milan is during fall or winter. With so many layers to put on your body to stay warm, you can easily flex your style in one of the most prominent fashion capitals in the world. But those who only go here during that time miss the beauty of the city during springtime. A time where Milan blooms unlike any other. A time where people can go out, eat great food, and just have a good time. That's what makes springtime in Milan so great! You ought to not miss it yourself!

Great Time To Visit Lake Como

One of the best things about Milan is that it's a central finance and business hub, not just in Italy, but in Europe, in general. The bustling metropolis reeks of big money from every corner you turn to. But it can, however, get too overwhelming. As much as you want to work in Milan, you'll want to go on a break sometimes too, right? Most especially when it's spring! That's why it's great to spend that time of the year here in Milan. Because the city is only a hop and a skip away from Lake Como, one of the most relaxing resort areas in Italy. See the natural beauty of this place during springtime!

See Milan Bloom

Speaking of natural beauty, very rarely does that come into the conversation when talking about Milan. This city, a fashion capital at best, is an urban jungle where the corporate world (as well as the fashion world) reigns supreme. Sure, Lake Como is nearby, but it's still outside of the city proper. You're more likely to see skyscrapers and office buildings here instead of hilltops and the seaside. But at least, during spring, the flowers bloom. With their floral bursts of color and sweet sensations, they paint Milan in a totally different light. One that's softer, more natural, less severe, and simply magical!

Spring Collections Go Live

It's no secret that among many things, Milan is best known as one of the elite fashion capitals of the world. Milan Fashion Week is one of its busiest times and several Italian designers continue to show during the event. They've also set up shop here, establishing their ateliers and flagship stores to really keep the industry going. And come spring, their latest collections go live! The newest trends are set within the shops and stores of Milan's biggest designers, giving a peek into what people will wear for this coming season.

Start Your Alfresco Dining

Milan during winter may be quite magical, but since the weather during this time is extremely cold, it's not really the best for outdoor dining. Or as the Italians call it, eating 'alfresco.' Come springtime, however, restaurants, cafes, bistros, and more are setting up their fabulous terraces for a more pleasant dining experience. You'll see during this season that more and more people in Milan are opting to eat outside, enjoying the sunny yet cool weather whilst enjoying good food. Some may even hold their business lunches outside too, it may help seal the deal even faster!

Picnic At A Park

Don't want to pay for your meal? Not to worry! Another great option for a good meal outside during spring is to go on a picnic in any of Milan's best parks. Not many might know this, but this city, despite its very corporate and business-skewed reputation, has its own collection of natural oases. There's Parco Sempione, Parco del Portello, and many others. Granted most of these parks have their own classical structures as main attractions, no one can deny that they're also great spaces for some family fun and, of course, a nice picnic!

Perfect Time For Aperitifs

All this talk about enjoying a meal, don't forget your aperitifs! It's part of the unique way Italians drink wine. For those who don't know, an aperitif is a kind of alcoholic drink (often wine) that's consumed right before a meal. Italians drink it before lunch and dinner, preparing their stomachs for a flavorful and rich feast ahead. It's also one Italian custom that many people insist on, and avoiding it may offend them in the process. The good thing about drinking aperitifs during spring is that since the season brings about longer days, there's more time to enjoy one (or even two) before a meal!

Eat The Sweets

Finally, since springtime often means that Easter Sunday, one of Italy's most important holidays, gives you a perfect excuse to gorge on sweets. From traditional Italian desserts to candy and chocolates brought by the 'Easter Bunny,' indulging in the sweet stuff is more or less accepted during spring in Milan. That's not to say that desserts here are prohibited or anything like that, but for a rather serious and business-minded city like Milan, sweets aren't exactly the top culinary priority here! But when spring comes? Expect various dessert places and sweets shops to be packed!

Springtime in Milan is better if you have a luxury place to come home to!
