Best beaches near Milan take as little as 1 hour to as much as 5 hours to reach. That said, how are you coping with the summer ‘hotness’? I classify July and especially August as the still-air period in Milan. It becomes so humid and as a friend described, you would literally sweat for just lifting a finger. One of the shortcomings of living in Milan during summer is the inability to enjoy the seaside. As the weather now gets more humid and hot, I wish I could relocate to a house just by the seashore. But oh well, in my dreams.
