Most people in Milan exclusively speak Italian. Especially the older inhabitants. It will be easier to strike up a conversation in English with younger people in Milan, especially with students.
People working in hotels, restaurants, bars, museums and other tourist attractions will almost definitely speak English, and maybe even Spanish or German.
The currency used in Italy and Milan is the Euro.
You are not expected to tip in most Milan bars and restaurants. In most cases, tips for drinks or food are already included in the bill.
Bring some Euro’s in cash. Paying for Taxis, or even a luggage pushcart at the airport is convenient that way. You’ll find plenty of ATM’s scattered across the city, so we don’t recommend bringing large sums of cash with you.
Even though the last thing you want to think about is spending your vacation in a foreign hospital, you should always make sure your health insurance is ok. You don’t need any vaccinations in Milan and you also do not have to worry about the quality of healthcare.
You do not need a travel visa to visit Milan, a valid passport or European identity card will suffice.
You will find plenty of hotels in Milan and it will not be a problem to find one once you arrive in Milan. Book in advance to avoid additional costs.
We recommend using the metro in Milan. There are 4 metro-routes, each connecting to most important points in the city. Public transport is cheap, fast and quite convenient.
