Calling to and from Italy
The international dialing code for Italy is 39, and the code for Milano
city is 02. National calls: city code + telephone number. International
calls: 00 + country code + city code + telephone number.
Milano's climate is influenced by its location between the Po Valley
plain and the Apennine mountain range. Consequently, the city is fortunate
in avoiding extremely high temperatures and humidity during the summer,
when it is visited by many tourists. Milano is sheltered to a certain
extent from severe winter weather found in some regions in the north
of Italy. Whatever the time of year, though, visitors to Milano should
come prepared for showers and fog. This is particularly the case in the autumn,
when the climate can be particularly changeable.
