Brilliant things to do

in April

According to some interpretations, Aprile derives from the Etruscan “Apro” which in turn comes from the Greek Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

According to other theories, the name derives from the Latin “aperire” to indicate the month in which the flowers “open”.

We like both meanings and we are here to give you some ideas on what to do in Milan this spring month.
