The surrounding of the castle itself is worth the visit. When you arrive to Piazza Castello from Via Luca Beltrami, just walk towards the entrance and through the courtyards and behind them you find the whole Parco Sempione where you can spend ages walking through...More

Accessible via metro, this is a nice place for a stroll around the castle and adjacent park. There is a bookstore and museum that requires admission.

A lovely place to walk around and not pay a penny if you don't wish to. There are museums inside which you can visit for a small charge. The adjacent park is lovely to idle away a few hours just sitting and watching the world...More

In the middle of the City, very nice area, clean, good garden opposite of Piazza Castello. Deserves a walk and if you dont like museums, you dont have to spend a penny.

A walk through history in some ways, wondering how people lived as these guys controlled a lot and had quite a bit of the money. Something to see

Wow. Stunning, imposing and enormous. What is great is that you can wonder around the courtyards without paying entry. The very low entry fee covered access to all the many exhibitions housed in the castle. Well worth it to gaze at the ceilings if not...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the

The official website should tell you for sure but I would say it probably is open. You can spend a day here as there’s a lot to see and make sure you don’t miss the Michelangelo as I believe it closes earlier. I think it’s... More

Do not book any tour! Don't waste your money: Milano is very easy to visit just walking (it's smaller than Singapore) and all the main interesting historical place are in the city center. Just book a ticket for Leonardo's... More

Hello. Nope, I didn't see any. I think it will be better if you can leave it in the hotel or in the train stn. If you are looking to get the bus tour, you may ask the guide.
