Hints and tips for before you travel to Milan

Holidaymakers from the UK do not need to worry about a visa or vaccinations when visiting Milan. If you plan to work or reside there, or are coming from further afield, check with your embassy about any preparations that you need to make. Milan is the fashion capital of Italy so dress to impress! Milan is also the most expensive city in Italy, so be aware that you may need extra travel money.
