Two things that make July unique are the many concerts and fruits. I have been eating a lot of fruits lately and making homemade smoothies. Do like a Milanese and enjoy summer vegetables all through July. Forest berries, wild blueberries, apricots, and melons are in bloom. You can survive the summer heat with fresh juices from fruits and prosciutto – that do not require any cooking whatsoever.
As you may already know, July is a very busy month in Milan as there would be a lot of concerts. For this month, I have handpicked some events happening in Milan that may prick your interest.
Here are my recommendations for Events in July
Join the conferences, concerts, recitals and guided tours of Milano Arte Musica – International Festival of Ancient Music in different locations of the city. See the calendar here
