I would like to know the opinions of people here regarding the best times of the year to visit the following cities:
Milan and Turin
I know that the summer is the 'preferred' season for most places. But I like to take time and explore cities. I really don't mind if some famous tourist attractions are closed early or are not at their 'best'.
For example, the Zwinger in Dresden is supposed to be at its most beautiful in the summer. But I preferred a trip in the winter because it was less crowded and because of Christmas.
I also know some places can be very cold in summer, as my home is (Boston)
Autumn is the best time to visit Boston, and some cities are very beautiful then. Some prefer Spring.
So what are your experience and opinions?
