Great looking castle. You may find hidden gems, like I found Michelangelo's 'Pieta' on display. Behind the castle is a lovely park, which is just in front of Milan's peace arch.

A magnificent fortress and grounds. The brick work of the outer walks and turrets inspiring. We enjoyed a couple of hours wandering here. Well worth the walk from Milano Central.

Apart from the castle itself and the historical value, the surrounding gardens are a beautiful place just to sit and enjoy a picnic. Many locals use it as a sunbathing area adjacent to the lake.

Oh, my! The Sforza Castle left me breathless-a most impressive, magnificent sight!! FYI-on Tuesdays admission to the Castle is FREE, including Michaelangelo's Pieta Rondanini(his last work before his death). Even on a hot summer day, you can find shade, some air conditioning, food and drink.

Interesting and impressive! Beautiful artworks, tapestries, furniture, musical instruments... you name it, it's in here! So much to see that you could wander for hours, and we did! Lovely fountain in the foreground entrance and beautiful parkland behind.

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
