Great views

To make the most out of this tower visit on a clear day; you can see as far as the alps. The views are unobstructed and the guide was relatively informative.

Torre Blanca is a night sight you want to go and see. I was in the park and saw this tower lit up and enjoy the view a lot.

On one hand, there were nice views of the castle, stadium and Arch. On the other hand, it is enclosed in plastic, so your pictures don’t come out so great. You are also only up there for literally six minutes, so it can be a very quick way to spend money for a family. Only 7 people can squeeze into... More

Excellent views of the city. You only get 6 - 7 minutes for the 5 euro cost, but it's enough to walk around the the whole thing and appreciate the city. The guide with us was very friendly and chatty, probably because there were just two of us up there with her.

There are two guys who work on this attraction. One stay always at the bottom, and second escorts visitors to the top. When I came to this tower I was asked by guy #1 to wait 5-10 minutes until previous visitors return from top. elevator returned with guy #2 who escorted visitors on top of the tower. Guy #2 disappeared... More

Discovered tower by chance while wandering around Simplon Park Empty we thought it was closed. Walk in and discovered two slightly dour guys there. Paid I think €10 for both of us and up we went over 100m. The guy who took us up explained that the tower was built by Mussolini. Once we got talking he was brilliant and... More

This was a great thing to do when we were on our trip, not the cheapest at €20 for the 4 of us but the views are worth it... the only downside is you only get 6-7 minutes at the top, we were there and it was just us and 4 others with no queue so they could have allowed... More

We'd hope you could walk up all the steps for some extra exercise, but unfortunately you have to use an elevator. The views are good and although the experience is a bit regimented as they only take groups up to 6 up/down at a time, I recommend it.

I would thoroughly recommend that anyone in this area makes the effort to visit Parc Sempione and the Torre. To get to the top there is a short ride in a lift costing €5 each but it is worth every cent. The views over Milan and its suburbs are wonderful but you do need a clear day. For the football...

We stumbled on the tower in the park and decided to take a trip up in the elevator (approx 5 euros) so glad we did this. The viewing platform is enclosed and only small, so normally only 5 minutes allowed to take pictures. Myself and husband were the only two viewing early evening and the guide was happy to point...

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
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 rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
