Milan has reopened to the world and now offers a rich program of events for the holiday season. The city, which gave Mayor Beppe Sala a second term in office in the municipal elections, is experiencing a surge in confidence thanks to business and safety improvements. The vaccination campaign is also playing a major role, as the vaccination rate in Milan and Lombardy is currently at a very high 85%.
