Spring in Milan - When can I see blooming spring flowers?

The ideal time to visit Milan if you wish to see the blooming spring flowers is anytime between early March to early April. 

This is also one of the cheapest periods to visit Milan, as it is right between the two of the biggest events in Milan – Milan Fashion Week in February and Milan Design Week with Fuorisalone in mid-April.

Where can I see blooming spring flowers in Milan?

Even though you can see blooming spring flowers all over Milan, these are the top 5 places to add on your list:

1. Brera Botanical Garden

Brera Botanical Garden is a green oasis of exclusive plants in the strict center of Milan that offers a perfect little escape from the cobblestone-paved streets and noise of the city. It presents a beautiful way to immerse in the world of flowers and forget you are even in the center of a metropolitan city.

Brera Botanical Gardens are free of charge. The gardens are open between Monday-Saturday, with opening times as below:

  • 9.30 am – 4.30 pm from 01 November until 31. March
  • 10 am – 6 pm from 01 April to 31 October

2. Piazza Nicolò Tommaseo

Piazza Nicolò Tommaseo and its gardens (Renata Tebaldi Gardens) are my favourite spring location in Milan. The gardens become an Instagram sensation each year during the last week of February and the first week of March. The baby pink magnolia trees that are in full bloom for only a couple of days bring tourists and locals to the square. The entire square is coloured pink.

You can reach Piazza Nicolò Tommaseo easily by taking the red metro from Duomo to Conciliazione. The metro is easy to navigate, learn how to navigate Milan’s public transport easily.

3. Parco Sempione

Parco Sempione is Milan’s most famous park and one of the must-see spots on my 3-day local guide to Milan.

It is a perfect spot in Milan to spend a peaceful morning or afternoon amongst the blooming flowers, enjoying either a picnic, sports activities, or having a drink at one of the bars.

4. Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli - Porta Venezia

Like Parco Sempione, Porta Venezia Gardens (Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli) are a public park just a short walk away from Duomo. You will find blooming flowers on every corner, alongside fountains, lakes and monuments.

5. Via Abramo Lincoln

Not only is Via Abramo Lincoln one of the top 7 most Instagrammable locations in Milan, but it is also a perfect spot to catch blooming spring flowers.

The street is famous for its vibrant-coloured houses with private green courtyards and lush green trees filling the street. In spring, you should also add blooming oleander gardens, coloring the street in white. One of the places to visit in Milan in spring.

Hint: two of my recommended brunch spots in Milan are just a few streets away.
