Milan in Settembre is a farewell to vacation. The summer heat is gone by September and the Autumn is almost here. In Italy as well in Milan, this month means back to work, and back to school for students.
After the August calm, the city slowly gets into ordinary rhythms, traffic increases and business frenzy begins again. If you decide to visit Milan in mid September, bear in mind that Women’s Fashion Week will be in full swing and be sure to book your hotel months in advance.
In general there is no big changes in climate in comparison with August in Milan. The temperatures drop moderately compared to the preceding months. The weather remains pretty warm and very pleasant. The average temperature is around 19°C but sometimes with uncommon peaks over 25°C. Nights are more cooler with averages around 14°C .
What’s about rain? The news is not good as September is another wet month, with rainfall of nearly 92 mm. The percentage of rainfalls in Milan are near 32%. In spite of that, I suggest this month as you can take advantage of the warm weather without experiencing unpleasant sultry of July and August.
What to Pack
In many cases I’ve already underlined to check the weather forecast before you start your trip. Nothing will ruin your trip faster than being unprepared with the wrong clothing for the weather.
Milan weather in September is a good occasion to show off all your best cloths.
If you opt for a pair of crop tops combined with a mini skirt, and with a thin floral cardigan over, you’ll be in tune with a modern look. Remember, September in Milan is in the spirit of the coming Milan women’s fashion week.
Even for September the importance of comfortable walking shoes like sandals, ballet flats, and light sneakers are must add when packing. Milan is a walking friendly city but with these you can actually walk comfortably.
Don’t exclude the possibility of some rainy and wet days. In September it might be up to 10 days of sporadic rain periods, so put in your suitcase a light rain coat, you never know.
The events found in Milan in September have appeal to both men and women. Fashion week is a wonderful time to go shopping in Milan, while the Italian Grand Prix makes just as much noise.
