Prices for tours to Milan
The ideal time to visit Milan is April-May, September-October (prices at this time delight in their attractiveness). Despite the fact that it is quite hot in summer, this time of year is considered the high season, so tours to Milan are on the rise. Although winter is considered a relatively low season, the prices for stays to this Italian city increase during the New Years, during the sales season (January) and during Fashion Week (February)..
On a note!
Any attraction can be reached by metro or bus. But before visiting religious sites, it is worth clarifying when is the best time to go there on an excursion, since they are closed for tourists at lunchtime and during services. It is worth considering that many restaurants, banks and other establishments are closed from 14:00 to 16:00 (siesta).
Do not try to "catch" a taxi on the street - local drivers will not stop the car in the wrong place: for this purpose it is worth moving to the nearest transport stop.
Experienced travelers are advised to bring fashionable shoes, clothes and accessories, fur coats and sheepskin coats, small copies of car models, designer furniture, Murano glass products, carnival masks, Italian cheeses, wine, olive oil from Milan..
